Zapier Integration

Our first release of our Zapier Integration makes it easy to integrate Concord with over 3,000 apps, such as Salesforce, MailChimp, HubSpot, Oracle, and Shopify. In Zapier, A Zap is an automated workflow that connects your apps and services together and every Zap consists of a trigger step and one or more action steps. When you turn your Zap on, it will run the action steps every time the trigger event occurs.
