You have total control over the direction of your sync. Select a two-way sync if you want your customer data to sync continuously between both apps. Choose one-way if you only want to make changes in a single app and see it directly reflected in another.
With PieSync’s IF/THEN rules, you can choose just where each contact will go. Use it to create segments of your contacts to be synced to and from your chosen apps.
Your apps may have different fields on their contact records. PieSync will suggest common fields you can sync across apps - like syncing a ‘first name’ field to another ‘first name’ field - but you can also choose how you want to sync certain custom fields.
PieSync scans your entire database, using a contact’s email address as a basis to match contacts across apps. For example, if a contact exists in two apps, we enrich both records - so that means no more duplicates across your app stack.
If someone opts in or out from your email list, you should make sure their preferences are updated in your other apps. With PieSync, you can tag contacts or automatically subscribe or unsubscribe them from lists in other apps, making sure every one of your contacts is on the right list in every tool.
The health dashboard gives an overview of actions taken by PieSync. See for yourself which contacts were synced, and we’ll also let you know if there were any syncing errors and why. There’s also a handy search function and timeline showing details for any contact, app or connection.
You can invite unlimited team members to PieSync, and each of them can set up their own connections with their own set of rules. You can also sync apps used by different teams to make sure everyone’s working with the same set of data.
PieSync takes care of new entries as well as historical data - which means that we scan and sync not only new contacts, but existing ones as well.
Your contacts can be your clients, vendors, partners… pretty much everyone you’re in touch with in the day-to-day of your business. This is the main kind of data that PieSync works with - we can sync contact data between all of our supported apps.
In some CRMs, there may be a difference between a contact record and a lead record. With PieSync, you can make sure that leads and contacts are properly distinguished in every app, and ensure that each person is treated according to where they are in their journey with you.
Some of your tools might also let you create records for companies, or maybe accounts, organizations or businesses - in short, a record for a business entity instead of an individual. You can sync this data between some of our supported apps - and you can actually sync company information into contact records too.
PieSync specializes in syncing customer data two-ways and in real time. This means that whenever you update your data in one app, we also update it in your other connected apps, keeping in mind historical data to prevent duplicates. On the other hand, Zapier performs one-way pushes of data between apps to automate tasks and does not work with historical records.
Automate.io creates trigger-based, one-way actions, so it also specializes in creating automated workflows and tasks between various apps. PieSync actually does data syncing, so it keeps contacts in sync between several kinds of applications. It’s perfect for when you need duplicate prevention, controlled data merging and automatic updates on both sides.
Tray.io is used when you want to automate a chain of events - so it works best for one-way workflows. However, if you need to keep your customer data in sync, PieSync is the best option, as it allows your apps to talk to each other two-ways in real time.
