Pros

It has been an excellent software for us to use. Our business model is focused on automating as many processes as possible and Zapier is integral to our success.

This is probably the greatest automation program in the whole game. The amount of integrations with other apps is amazing so automating tasks between softwares is incredibly easy.

I have been using Zapier for years now and it has always worked great, their support is very responsive and kind and I would strongly recommend it for small automation projects.

Pros

And that you have a fair amount of free bots (5) to test the product. It's also pretty simple to use and there are a lot of integrations with a lot of product so it was perfect for me.

I must say I am very much impressed about the product, service and support I get from you guys. To be honest I was testing two products at the same time, But you came up tops in everything.

It was easy to set up - also absolutely love how helpful the CS was every time I asked something.

Cons

On going nightmare - ZAPs stop working by themselves, no support and here we have live API system not working.

AA

Asi A.

Of course, the explanation was unclear and so does the Manychat. Both sides would not be able to give me an answer to integrate them which is disappointing.

WC

WENDY C.

It sometimes stops without you knowing, and unless you login into the software everyday to check, you wouldn't know if there's an error or it just decided not to run.

Francis S.

Cons

I don't like how you can only add up to two applications at once. Sometimes I would need to connect more than 2 applications, but sadly, I can't with Automate.io.

Studying Automation.io before using it was a bit confusing.

The bots would constantly shut down & there was a limited number of available apps to connect with minimal actions.

Was a big Zapier Fan until I found Automate.io

Reviewed 4 years ago

So far really glad I found them, since Zapier is just too expensive for a small business

Pros

The guys have pretty much the same functionality from what I saw so far, but they are unbeatable on pricing and customer service. Our rep from the support team replied several times almost faster then I could formulate my questions. That's something I've so far only seen at Intercom directly. Thumbs up!

Cons

Hmmm, on the free tier the bots are paused when the threshold is reached. I wasn't aware of this so that was a little downer.

The father of zapier

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall automate.io has solved so many problems for us that I can't imagine running operations without it.

Pros

Far far far easier to create bots as compared to zapier. Interface is so clean and easy to use. Solves so many problems every day.

Cons

More softwares like chargebee and totango are needed on it. Because we use them. But most of the famous ones are already there, so It's still extremely usefull.

Automate.IO is actually pretty amazing. Especially if you use HubSpot

Reviewed 9 months ago

Ok, this may be a long read. For a client, we switched to Gravity Forms from Fluent Forms as we are beginning to use Hubspot, and fluent form HubSpot support was basic. Turns out Gravity forms did not do everything we needed for hubspot either but at least it Created OR Updated contact info. Not just failed to save if an email address already existed in Hubspot. But it did not 1) create notes in...

Pros

Its hubspot integration, and I can pull some crazy stunts with it.

Cons

Ok this is small. wish you could save webhooks for reuse.
