Why the automation tool?
Here are few cases of automation.
You run ads on Facebook (lead ads for lead generation) and capture leads in the Lead forms but then you need to manage them in your favorite CRM?
You copy/import/type the data manually from Lead forms to your CRM. You need to spend lot of time on juggling between the two applications.
Whenever the Lead form is submitted, The integration tool will capture the data and send it to your CRM.
Manual method can be fine, when you’re not generating few leads. Business is about growth, so you want to generate more leads, you are wasting lot more time on just copying the data form one source to another.
As Growth hackers say, either you need to automate or outsource the routine work to improve your business. Who want to outsource it when you can achieve that with a tool at a cheaper cost to your business, that is where the Automation chips in.

You can check the list of integrated applications here. Some integrations are not updated on their website, they are much busier in adding integrations than showcasing them on the website.
How does it work? How it is different?
Pabbly Connect have multiple types of integrations API and Webhook.
But Pabbly Connect follows the web-hook first approach.
Web-hook first means when you search any application name inside Pabbly Connect, you will find the web-hook URL first to connect with that application.
Web-hooks are instant and give instant data to your workflow for execution and they are the future of integration. 99% of all our triggers are web-hook based.
If you do a quick search on any application inside Pabbly Connect workflow, you will find that we will give you the web-hook URL along with all the instructions to add the web-hook inside the external application.
We will not ask you to connect based on Polling first at all.
If the software is webhook-first, it has to give you the webhook URL when you are trying to integrate any application inside your workflow.
Further, all webhooks are not equal and because we are web-hook first, we built our architecture to parse even the most complex web-hooks too and further give you a simple way to map everything.
We are able to parse web-hooks of different types like:
- Simple Non-nested web-hooks.
- Multi-Nested web-hooks.
- Nested web-hooks with arrays in them.
- Encrypted web-hooks.
- Web-hooks that are not JSON.
- Form Data Web-hooks.
- XML Web-hooks.
We can read through all different types of data and allow you to simply build your work-flows without you even knowing what everything is all about.
Pabbly is amazing.
The whole core principle is Web-hook first based. It’s not a feature for us that you bring at a later stage. It’s the core that drives our product.
