Did you know the average small-to-medium-sized business uses 13 different applications? Keeping contacts updated across this many apps gets tedious, and it’s even more complicated when you’re dealing with thousands of contacts for your marketing campaigns.

Starting today, PieSync is natively integrated within SharpSpring, a cloud-based marketing automation provider. The in-app integration takes the hassle out of data syncing by allowing SharpSpring to sync contacts with any of the apps within PieSync’s library without users having to leave the SharpSpring platform.

The expanded integration provides SharpSpring customers with direct access to PieSync’s point-and-click interface to easily build integrations with more than 80 third-party applications – such as Google Contacts, Recurly, Zendesk, Pipedrive and Microsoft Dynamics 365 – without the need for a team of developers.

The result: Clean, updated lists without duplicates or other errors. And more importantly, you’ll have more time to focus on strategic initiatives rather than worrying about managing your database, so you can get the most out of marketing automation.

These are the apps that are currently available through the integration (and PieSync is adding new connectors every week):

Some SharpSpring customers have already been using PieSync, and they have great things to say about using it with their marketing automation efforts. One of those customers is Kalon Wiggins, Digital Marketer at Epic Design Labs.

Epic Design Labs uses PieSync to sync contacts between SharpSpring and several other business apps, including Zendesk, Recurly and Google Contacts.

PieSync offers a way to easily have the full customer data interact between SharpSpring and our other apps. This new enhancement allows us to easily connect all of our SaaS-based applications and unify our departments. – Kalon Wiggins, Digital Marketer at Epic Design Labs

Intelligent Syncing

This integration coincides with PieSync’s new feature upgrade: Intelligent Syncing. The feature enables users to synchronize contacts in a smart way, maintaining their own segmentation for marketing, communication and support purposes.

By setting up “ Ifthisthenthat” rules, the user can accomplish complex automated processes across different applications.

The native integration with SharpSpring is a way to give users the freedom to create their own SaaS stack that fits their business needs. SMEs use thirteen apps on average, and there’s no easy solution to keep customer contacts’ data consistent between them. PieSync takes this pain away by using Intelligent Two-Way Syncing to synchronize contacts between apps. Ewout Meyns, PieSync CEO

The native integration with PieSync provides a very convenient way for SharpSpring customers to sync their contacts instead of juggling isolated data, which means they can work from the same transparent database, in real time. Our goal with the native integration was to further streamline the syncing process. Now our customers can connect multiple apps in real time at the click of a button. – Rick Carlson, SharpSpring CEO
