The reason behind the sync
iContact is a Marketing tool backed by a strong and approachable customer support team that allows you to create, send, segment, and track emails. iContact makes it easy for SMEs to choose from their collection of results-orientated features to suit any budget.
Where do you get your email subscribers from? Next to iContact, you are probably using several cloud applications that gather valuable customer contact data. The problem is that most apps don’t really communicate with each other. As a result, you have isolated islands of data in each area of your business.
Many businesses use the time-wasting import/export or one-way zaps, but your apps are never really up-to-date. These methods are one of the most common causes of duplicate contact data, while historical data is rarely pushed.
PieSync’s sync engine helps you create an intelligent 2-way connection between iContact and more than 170 cloud-based apps in real time. During the initial sync, the service matches the existing, historical data between the two systems and merges your duplicate contacts.
Later on, PieSync continually checks and understands the data in both apps, so whenever changes happen on a subscriber, or on a contact in the CRM, or in either connected tool, updates are synced both ways according to your exact criteria.
This means no more worrying about manually import/export, duplicates or outdated data!
From now on, you can connect iContact to business platforms such as Google Contacts, Microsoft Dynamics, Outlook, Pipedrive, Quickbooks, FullContact, Netsuite, Intercom, HubSpot, Salesforce, etc.
