Zapier integration coming to FieldMotion
in Technical Blog by Kae Verens
One of the questions we are asked a lot when talking with clients is, "Does your service management software integrate with [...]", followed by any number of different software products, such as Quickbooks, Opera, Sage, Xero, Google Calendar, etc. Instead of spending decades and linking individually to each of these, we decided to use the ready-made API hub Zapier. With Zapier, you can connect any of more than 750 different applications together with almost no technical knowledge at all. It's really very simple! More than 1,000,000 people use Zapier. We've looked through their app-list a few times, and as far as we know, we're the only field service management software using Zapier. There are some project management, task management, and paperless forms systems in there, such as Trello or Asana, but no other field service engineer software. To start off with the integration, we're doing some very simple workflow - when you create a job in FieldMotion, you can (for example) have that job show up in Google Calendar. Or you can have that when a job is finished, an email is sent including details from the job. For now, our Zapier plugin is beta-only. If you're interested in trying it out, please contact us and we'll help get you set up. Zapier is actually an ideal match for us, because it's all about workflow management, as is our own product! We're really excited to get this out there and see what we can do with it.
