GetApp’s Integration Leaders in Scheduling

What we'll cover

Software integrations form an indispensable part of the IT strategy of most businesses. Not only do they foster seamless information flow between applications, but they also boost process efficiency, increase data visibility, and consolidate disparate information sources.

When it comes to integration potential, all software solutions aren’t created equal. Some tools are clear winners and can integrate with a variety of solutions, while others integrate with only a handful.

Analyzing products specifically for their integration capabilities can be labor intensive. To save you time, we compiled a report to help you access relevant integration data for scheduling software.

With this report, we want to help you select a scheduling tool that offers maximum integration potential. We analyzed integration data for some of the highest-rated products on the market and compiled our findings into this report. (View the complete selection methodology for these products at the bottom of this page.)

The Integration Leaders grid above showcases products with the highest integration scores based on user reviews on GetApp. (See the complete report methodology at the bottom of this page.)

On the grid, products are arranged in increasing order of their overall ratings (bottom to top) and integration scores (left to right). That means products higher up on the grid have higher overall ratings and products toward the right have higher integration scores. Therefore, products in the top right zone of the grid rank higher in overall ratings as well as integration scores compared to other products on the grid.

Most common app integrations

It can be challenging to figure out which tools a software product integrates with. Software providers may not explicitly mention this information on their product websites or that information may be buried on a webpage.

In this section, we look at the specific integration capabilities of GetApp’s scheduling software Integration Leaders.

We’ve built a matrix that allows you to compare how well our scheduling Integration Leaders play with popular apps such as Slack, Zoom, Salesforce, Outlook, and Gmail. We’ve divided these apps into three categories: email marketing, meeting, and CRM.

  • Email marketing: The table below highlights email marketing tools that integrate with the products featured in our scheduling software Integration Leaders report. According to our research—based on information gathered from vendor websites and other publicly available sources—Outlook, Mailchimp, Gmail, and ActiveCampaign are the email marketing solutions most commonly integrated with scheduling software and, therefore, have been used for comparison.

  • Meeting: The table below highlights popular meeting tools that integrate with the products featured in our scheduling software Integration Leaders report. According to our research—based on information gathered from vendor websites and other publicly available sources—Slack, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet are the meeting solutions most commonly integrated with scheduling software and, therefore, have been used for comparison.

  • Customer relationship management (CRM): The table below highlights popular CRM tools that integrate with the products featured in our scheduling software Integration Leaders report. According to our research—based on information gathered from vendor websites and other publicly available sources—Salesforce, Pipedrive, and Zoho CRM are the CRM solutions most commonly integrated with scheduling software and, therefore, have been used for comparison.

"The templates and easy payment integration. I also really love the client portals. It makes me look like I have it all together, and makes the user experience for my clients completely seamless. "

"We use the tasks feature daily to organize our leads - being able to track where they come from is essential, as is the ability to customize the workflow to schedule follow-up messages and email templates. The integration with our accounting software (QuickBooks Online) was seamless and has made bookkeeping much easier. Having all of our project data in one place is also huge for us! "

"I would not be able to run my business without Honeybook. Things I love: contact form integration, super easy to invoice clients and track financials, Google calendar integration, and client management of course. Honeybook reminds me to follow up with clients, tells me when someone hasn't viewed an email or invoice, and keeps me on task. GET IT NOW."

"Google Calendar integrates well with most software and is super user friendly. The calendar is so easy to use and navigate that everything stays organized. I've used my Google Calendar for years now and I've always appreciated the simplicity."

"- Integration with Gmail is seamless -- very easy to invite contacts that have been auto-ingested by Gmail

- An array of integrations with web-conferencing platforms that make it easy to input meeting URLs

- Push notifications on phone and desktop make it hard to miss a meeting

- Ability to set working hours so no one can book outside that time

- Ability to add an additional timezone, especially helpful when trying to schedule with other offices outside your region or clients outside your region"

It has lots of security settings for shared calendars and very easy to display on your website etc. I love that you can colour code different types of events and viewing multiple calendars simultaneously. It's also great to attach files to meeting events and insert notes so you know what happened at the meeting."

Report methodology

Integration Leaders reports highlight top-ranked products based on ratings from end users. Products are scored on two dimensions: integration score and overall rating.

1. Integration score is calculated based on the sentiment of user reviews that describe a product’s integration capabilities, based on our proprietary assessment.

2. Overall rating score is calculated based on the overall user ratings for each product. Newer ratings are weighted more heavily.

Data sources include approved user reviews, public data sources, and data from technology vendors. Please refer to the GetApp Community Guidelines for more information.

To be eligible for inclusion in a category, a product must meet the following criteria:

  • Have at least 20 unique product reviews published on GetApp within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report.

  • Achieve a minimum normalized overall rating (as of March 2022).

  • Have at least 10 unique product reviews that discuss the quality of that product’s integrations with other products.

  • Achieve a minimum positive sentiment score for reviews that describe integrations, based on our proprietary assessment.

  • Show evidence of offering required functionality as demonstrated by publicly available sources, such as the vendor’s website.

The matrix table showing each product’s integrations with the most commonly integrated apps in the market is supplemental; that data does not factor into a product’s qualification for, scores in, or placement on the Integration Leaders chart.

The data used in the matrix table was collected from vendor websites and other publicly available data sources. Individual integration capabilities were not evaluated by the GetApp team. The data is believed to be accurate at the time of publication, but readers should note that vendors will continue to expand and change the integrations they offer over time. Our reports will not reflect such changes in real time; such changes will be reflected if and when we update the report in the future.

The review excerpts provided are based on what users liked about the integration functionality/ability of the product within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report. Review excerpts are passages extracted from longer reviews written by verified reviewers. We obtain these excerpts by applying an algorithm that considers factors including, but not limited to, word count and topic coverage. Excerpts are evaluated for positive or negative sentiment and receive a sentiment score. We are only highlighting excerpts with the highest positive sentiment scores in this document.

Excerpts represent user opinion and do not represent the views of, nor constitute an endorsement by GetApp or its affiliates. Excerpts are not edited for clarity or grammar.

Disclaimer

At GetApp, we objectively select and rank products based on a methodology developed by our research team. Some vendors pay us when they receive web traffic, but this has no influence on our methodology.

We conducted this analysis based on reviews and ratings data as of March 2022. In order to present the most up-to-date information, the product cards above show real-time ratings. Please note that this means the ratings value in the product card may not reflect the ratings value at the time of analysis.

The full text of the reviews excerpted are from published reviews on GetApp.com for the associated products on the date this content was published. GetApp makes no guarantee that the reviews will remain posted for the entire period this report is active.
