Just trying to understand my options.  I use zapier right now but keep hearing about azuqua.  Any advantages of one over the other?

 

Thanks

    Jef,

     

    I'm not experienced with either. Hopefully, some one else will chime in or you can follow the links below and get a feel. Both apps have a free trial, if you have time and things you want to try, I'd suggest getting them and see how they work for you.

     

    Azuqua: https://azuqua.com/

    Zapier: https://zapier.com/

     

    The first big difference is price.

    Azuqua starts at $250/month. Their Enterprise and Embedded tiers are priced based on your size and needs.

    Zapier has a free version, though it is very limited. Only 100 tasks a month. You could have it watching something like the Smartsheet Community, which seems to get about 2-3 new threads per day, but not much more than that.

    They have 4 tiers above that but the highest is "only" $125/,month.

    Both scale with need both up and down.

     

    Both seem to:

    1. integrate other web apps.

    2. automate work flow

     

    Hope this helps,

     

    Craig

    I've only used Zapier to test out one solution. It didn't solve the exact problem I was needing to solve. I was wanting to move a Project Row with subtasks from one sheet to another sheet once the project was completed. It would move the summary row and subtasks but it woudln't keep the parent/child relationship in place.

    I haven't tried it with Azuqua. (i just downloaded the free trial now.)

     

    Here's a couple of links in the Smartsheet app section on both apps.

    I did get some feedback from someone who had used both and favored Azuqua both on its reliability and support.

     

    When I try the free trial of Azuqua, i'll post back.

    Hi Jef, 

     

    That is a great question. I work for Azuqua as a Customer Success Manager and it would be great to learn more about what you are wanting to do as that might help me better answer your question.

     

    Some of the main differences between Azuqua and Zapier are that Azuqua enables you to do more than a simple A to B move or synchronization of data. With Azuqua you have the power to insert conditions inside the workflow, like If condition A is met do action X or if condition B is met do action Y. You also have the ability to talk to more than two sheets or applications inside one workflow. 

     

    An example, if you make an update on Smartsheet as an example like marking a checkbox. Based on this action in one workflow you can send a notification, move data between sheets, create a new record in Salesforce and JIRA, and so on. That is one of the larger differences between the two. 

     

    Does that help? I'd be more than happy to provide you information to answers and additionally you can find more information at the following link:
