Thousands of companies benefit from Zapier every day. Here are a few Case Studies conducted by Zapier:
When a leading graphic design company that connects other companies to quality graphic designers for web projects needed robust automation solutions, they turned to Zapier. They harnessed the power of Zapier by completely automating their sales process, leading to happier clients, more sales made, and countless hours saved. They do this by connecting their typeforms to the Hubspot CRM, creating new deals and contacts automatically from the typeform responses. Graphics team is then notified of new projects through Slack. Finally, an email is sent to the new client indicating their project request has been received. All of this is done in seconds by the Zapier platform.
An innovative startup that helps businesses make time tracking, payroll, and workers comp easy needed a solution that made their businesses operations easier too. With Zapier, they were able to streamline their onboarding process. First, Zapier will send clients forms to sign through PandaDoc once certain steps are completed to join the platform. It sends these documents through Gmail and once they're signed, Zapier will connect to RingCentral to send important tax forms safely to the IRS. This onboarding process is done without the owners and employees of the company having to do anything, allowing them to focus on customer service and engineering the product instead.
Employees advocating and sharing news about their companies on social media is a great way to increase social engagement and recruit new, quality employees. However, it can be hard for large businesses to monitor all of these posts and make sure they’re acceptable. That’s why a leading software company came up with an application which allows companies to curate their employee posted content. Zapier helped them optimize this platform in a wide variety of ways. For instance, with Zapier they are able to connect the Feedly API to the Digest by Zapier and Email by Zapier features. What this did was create a new story when employees added news to the Feedly API. Digest by Zapier then added these stories to a scheduled digest, after which Email by Zapier sent the digest to the admin for review. This made it extremely easy for the admin to sort through the posted stories and approve them as needed.

Put simply, Zapier is a cloud-based automation tool, but there is boundless potential beneath the surface. Zapier has literally thousands of apps that it's able to connect, including highly used ones like Slack, Google Drive, Salesforce, and so much more. Zapier can be as simple or as complex as you need it to be. Anyone can set up a basic Zap with just a few steps, but most companies will need something more robust. If you need something more comprehensive, advanced Zaps can be made by experienced developers. This unlimited potential makes it one of the most used automation tools on the market.
Zapier's name rings out in the automation world because they've created a platform that makes automation more accessible and that has the ability to connect to thousands of common APIs. Zapier started back in 2011 and has grown to a team of over 250 employees with a diverse background and skill set. Their dedication to staying on the cutting edge of automation has made Zapier one of the consistently best choices when companies and teams are looking to overhaul their workflows and processes.
Zapier is being used by over 3 million people in a vast array of industries. No matter what industry you happen to be in, Zapier can make your workflows and processes easier and more efficient. Zapier technology is used in the healthcare industry, the real estate industry, the financial industry, and so much more. Zapier's flexibility and ability to work with thousands of apps means that every company can find some sort of benefit from using the platform.
Zapier technology relies on its ability to connect different apps and automate workflows. To get a general idea of how Zapier technology works, it's good to know a few terms. The most common terms being Zap, Trigger, Action, and Task. Let's break each of these terms down:
A Zap is just a term that describes a workflow you've created on the Zapier platform. When you create a Zap, you'll need to create triggers and actions to make it work.
A trigger is an event that causes your Zap to run. You can have automatic Zaps or manual Zaps. An Automatic Zap will go off every time the specific trigger event occurs in the app. Zapier does this constantly monitoring the app and watching for the event. For instance, let's say you want a Slack notification every time you make a sale on Shopify. Zapier will monitor your Shopify store and when a sale is made, the trigger, it will send you a notification about the sale in Slack.
In the above example with the Slack notification, the notification itself would be considered the action. Zapier saw the sale happen and that triggered it to send you the notification. When creating a Zap, triggers will be labeled as "When this happens" followed by what you've chosen as the trigger. The action will follow and be labeled as "Do this" followed by your desired action.
When your Zap runs a piece of data, like sending you a Slack notification, then it counts as one task. The more tasks you use, the bigger your Zapier plan will need to be. Keep in mind though, all of those tasks are all things you didn't have to do yourself manually, so those tasks are a good visual of the amount of time you've saved by using Zaps.
There are so many ways to use Zapier, it would be impossible to list every possible Zap here. However, to give you the briefest idea of some things Zapier can do, here are some of the most popular Zaps people are using:
These Zaps are just scratching the surface of what Zapier is capable of, Zaps can be as simple or as complex as you need them to be.
As you can see, the functions of Zapier are extremely diverse. The downside of all these capabilities is that it can be difficult to figure out where to start.
