Written by Capria Admin

Zapier is a platform that enables you to integrate apps and automate workflows without coding. By creating “zaps” between different platforms, Zapier streamlines repetitive tasks and boosts productivity for startups and small teams. This means you can automate workflows between the tools you already use rather than switching between different apps and manually transferring data.
