What is the difference between PieSync and Automate.io?
Discover how to connect applications with this Automate.io alternative.
No, currently Automate.io does not offer two-way syncing features such as version merging or conflict resolution. Most supported apps don’t have triggers for updated data.
Yes, in both directions. Conflicting data can be managed in a controlled way – fields will never be overwritten.
Not always. It will only work if your app sends out webhooks when updates happen. Even then you need to set up dedicated bots for updates to get pushed across.
Yes, PieSync constantly monitors the records in both apps. Whenever it detects changes, it updates the data in the other app too, keeping everything in sync.
No, the data you stored before your Bot was created will not be acted upon. Bots only manage new data.
Yes, during the initial sync PieSync matches the existing, historical data between the two systems, and also keep any new data in sync. All in one single setting.
PieSync focuses on bringing apps together by fully syncing data between apps and automagically allowing you to work with the same data in different apps. PieSync is purpose-built to synchronize contacts in both directions, in real time.
Automate.io’s biggest strength is the possibility to create multi-app workflows to automate tedious tasks. You can create “Bots” to perform trigger-based actions - yet these are always in one-direction only. That means the actions in one app will activate the bot and trigger the same action in another app, or several of them.
For 2-way real-time sync of contacts data, PieSync is the way to go.
For one-way, one-time workflows across multiple apps, Automate.io is great.
I use PieSync to sync Google Contacts with my Salesforce and entirely eliminate data entry from my processes. With affordable service and responsive customer support, I know I'm in good hands.
Everything works smoothly with PieSync. After a 10-minute setup we were able to sync our contacts between Salesforce and HubSpot. In Salesforce we collect information about clients and prospects that, thanks to the sync, we can use in HubSpot for marketing purposes. I would definitely recommend it!
