Zapier provides an integration platform that allows you to automate daily tasks that involve using two or more applications. By creating a "Zap", you can define an action and set it up to be repeated when certain triggers happen. An example of a "trigger" that you could set up in Zapier might be receiving an email in Gmail from a certain address, an "action" might include receiving an SMS notification. The Zap is therefore to receive an SMS notification every time you receive an email from a certain client in your Gmail account.
Connect over 300 web apps without the use of any code. Zapier allows you to connect Gmail, Google Docs, Evernote, Google Calendar, Dropbox, Asana, Google Drive, Basecamp, Facebook Pages, MailChimp, Trello, Twitter, HipChat, GitHub, SalesForce, Podio, InfusionSoft, Wufoo, Box, LinkedIn, WordPress, Xer, Quickbooks, Zoho CRM and many more.
