The Need for Apps as an Online Business Owner
If you own a business, and have an online presence, it’s absolutely imperative that you have a variety of apps to keep things running smoothly. These apps can range from email to accounting software, and everything in between. Using these apps can help ensure that your business is successful. If you set up automation, using certain apps, it allows you to have a more hands-off approach, so you can focus on other areas of your business. However, with so many apps out there, making sure they’re all active (and running well) can easily become overwhelming.
In addition to having the apps themselves, many business owners want to set up certain functions to help the apps work together. In order to do this, it generally required some sort of third-party software. Considering the variety of apps that may be used to run a business, it may require users to have a variety of software programs to get them all to work together. This could result in spending quite a bit of money, just to make sure your productivity apps were working well together.
I’m sure many of you have heard of Zapier. Integrately is essentially the same concept. It’s a software company that allows you to easily integrate all of your apps. Integrately eliminates the need to have several third-party software programs to automate all of your apps. Integrately is operated by the same people that run CompanyHub, so you can be confident that you’re getting an incredible product from a reputable company.
Despite being a relatively new company, they’ve had incredible growth so far. According to Integrately, they currently offer over 200,000 app integrations, all of which can be activated with one click. If they happen to not have an app that you use, they have a super easy remedy. They run off of a voting system, of sorts. On the page where all of their apps are listed, they have a button where you can essentially nominate an app. As a result, they’re constantly adding new apps based on customer’s needs.
How to Use Integrately
Integrately is incredibly easy to set up and use. I started using Integrately to replace a similar software that just wasn’t quite meeting my needs. I find Integrately much easier to use, and also less glitchy than some of its competitors. Even if you’re not incredibly technical, you’re sure to be able to use Integrately with ease.
Once you’re signed up, the homepage will ask what apps you want to connect. They have a really fantastic search feature to quickly locate the apps you use. Once you select the apps, you can set up rules as to the flow of the apps. This step also takes you through any additional customizations that you may want or need. Once you have completed the customizations, Integrately will take you testing to make sure the apps are working correctly. After testing is successful, you can make the app automation live.
That’s all there is to it. It’s really that simple to set up and get everything running.
As previously mentioned, similar app integration software can be quite expensive. Integrately offers very reasonable rates, especially when you think of everything you’re getting. On their pricing page, they also show a comparison as to what Zapier offers for pricing and the number of tasks. I believe that’s a pretty nice feature as it saves you from having to do extensive research as to the competitor’s plans and what they offer
They currently offer four different paid pricing plans, so you’re sure to find one that meets your needs. The plan tiers that they offer are Starter, Professional, Growth, and Business. All of the plans include things like premium support, webhooks, search, check condition, modify data, etc.
The Starter plan runs $15 per month and normally gives you access to 3,500 tasks. However, they are currently doing a special offer, which gives you access to up to 14,000 tasks. The Starter plan includes things like 20 automations and five minute update time.
The Professional plan runs $29 per month and normally gives you access to 10,000 tasks. However, currently, they are offering access to up to 40,000 tasks with this plan. The Professional plan includes a two minute update time, rather than five minutes. It also gives you access to unlimited automations. While the feature is not available quite yet, auto-replay will also be included with this plan.
The Growth plan runs $99 per month and gives access to 30,000 tasks. Like the other plans, they are currently offering a special offer. This offer gives you access to up to 150,000 tasks. In addition to what’s included in the Professional plan, the Growth plan allows you to set up unlimited users and folder connections. They are also in the process of setting up shared connections, which is a feature that will also be included in this plan.
The Business plan runs $250 per month. It gives you access to 100,000 tasks. With the special offer, that they’re currently doing, you get access to up to 700,000 tasks. The plan also includes everything that the Growth plan offers.
In addition to the special offers giving you access to more tasks, Integrately also gives users a 14-day free trial. This gives you plenty of time to test out the service and make sure it’s a good fit.
Give It a Try!
I’ve personally been using Integrately for a few months. It truly has made my life so much easier and has been a total time-saver. I would definitely recommend giving it a try as it’s not only super easy to use but also pretty reasonable.
