What is Yocale + Zapier all about?
We will get to how in just a moment.
Why Your Business Needs to Focus On Automation
Manual tasks cost your business a lot of money.
Routine tasks decrease the efficiency of your workflow. Your employees are left spending their time on low-value tasks, which drives up costs and decreases your revenue.
Automation, however, frees up employee time, drives down costs and boosts your revenue.
Automation is not only the key to more revenue but also overall growth.
This is especially true for small businesses.
The new Small and Medium Business Trends Report from Salesforce echoes this idea: their survey of over 500 small businesses found that the businesses that are automating their processes are the ones growing.
In fact, they are 1.6X more likely to be growing than businesses who aren’t automating.
For appointment-based businesses, your scheduling software is already automating a lot of tasks for you.
But if Yocale is your appointment scheduler of choice, you could be automating even more of your tasks, particularly when it comes to your workflow.
If you use Yocale’s appointment scheduler, did you know that you can use Zapier to integrate Yocale with all of your third-party apps and business tools like Google Calendar, QuickBooks, MailChimp and just about every other app you possibly think of?
Did you know that you can use Zapier to automate many of your Yocale tasks?
Automation is key to business success and Zapier makes it easy.
What Is Zapier, Again?
We’re talked about what a powerhouse Zapier is in the past, but here is a brief refresher for those who aren’t quite sure how the app works:
Zapier is an app that allows you to integrate all of the web applications you use in order to automate tasks. Essentially, it allows all of your apps to talk to each other.
Here’s just one example:
If you use Google Calendar and Gmail, you can connect the two to create a “Happy Birthday email draft in advance of a client’s birthday so that you don’t have to manually do this yourself.
These are all called “zaps.”
Here’s another example: you could connect Pipedrive and Zapier so that when Pipedrive deals enter a stage, draft emails on Gmail are up already ready for you.
Above all, Zapier makes it easy to integrate many of your third-party apps and specifically to automate tasks in-between them. Zapier essentially cuts down on time spent manually doing tasks between apps.
Yocale has now partnered with Zapier and as you will see, the possibilities are endless.
