IFTTT vs Zapier
Last updated: April 26, 2018
IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement: If This Than That. Channels are the basic building blocks of IFTTT. Each Channel has its own Triggers and Actions. The this part of a Recipe is a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.” The that part of a Recipe is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.”
Zapier connects the web apps you use to easily move your data and automate tedious tasks. Connect the apps you use to easily move data between them. Use simple, event-based automation to avoid repetitive tasks.
IFTTT vs Zapier in our news:
2018 - IFTTT raised $24M from Salesforce to win over Zapier
Cloud integration service IFTTT raised another $24 million in funding to take its business deeper into areas like enterprise and IoT services. IFTTT today has 14 million registered consumers. Products from Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Twitter, BMW, Samsung, IBM, MyQ, and Verizon are among those touched by IFTTT scripts. Despite all the competition, IFTTT has grown as a long-tail play, by focusing on specific actions between apps and devices, some of which are created by users of its platform and some by the companies themselves, and often are not provided elsewhere either because companies have yet to integrate directly, or the action is perhaps too specific. So IFTTT is now more financially-stable than Zapier
2017 - Zapier added shared folders for teams to take on Cloudwork
Cloud app integration service Zapier is unveiling shared folders to help teams automate anything, together. Shared folders let teammates access a shared set of Zaps and collaborate to build more powerful workflows. With your individual Zapier account, you can create automated workflows called Zaps that connect two or more apps. But until now, you couldn't share those clever workflows with your co-workers. Shared folders make it possible. Anyone with access to a shared folder can tweak and improve the Zaps inside or copy them for their own use. We even added an option to share accounts for other tools—like Dropbox, Pipedrive, and Typeform—so you don't need to create separate logins for everyone. The conclusion is that Zapier gets more collaborative in comparison to Cloudwork
2017 - Zapier launched team accounts
Zapier, the business process-centric services for connecting different applications and automating workflows, announced the launch of Zapier for Teams. This new, $250/month plan complements the company’s existing free and $20/month tiers and adds a number of collaboration features to the service. For businesses, this new plan also means that they can offer access to Zapier to their employees and pay a single bill. Foster also argues that this will improve security, especially given that a company can now easily add and remove user accounts as needed. In the past, with Zapier’s old pricing tiers, employees would often share passwords, which is obviously not an ideal solution.
