- Bottom Line
Who Should Purchase Integrately?
Integrately is a reliable choice for customers who are looking for an integration tool that’s intuitive and hassle-free. The main offering is the one-click integration capability. Therefore, customers who are daunted by the idea of integration software will likely feel comfortable using the tool.
Though Integrately is a reliable option, it is not as advanced as Integromat and is almost equivalent in price. Therefore, customers will likely find more value in Integromat, which has both more applications and more complex workflow capabilities.
Who Should Purchase Integromat?
Customers who are looking for complex workflows, error handling, and data parsing should consider Integromat as a top contender. It’s uniquely powerful though still relatively affordable and relatively easy to use.
Overall, customers are extremely happy with their experiences using Integromat. One main drawback, however, is that both the triggers and outcomes of workflows count against your plan’s “task limit,” which is not true for all integration platforms. This means that you’ll use up your allotted tasks quicker than in other tools.

There is a vast library of pre-built one-click integrations that customers can search for and install with just a few clicks. There are thousands of these workflows ready to use, meaning that you don’t even have to build the workflows yourself if you don’t want to.
Creating workflows is quick and painless, as you’ll simply select your desired applications and pick the trigger and outcome. When we tested the workflows with Integrately, they worked instantly. We were able to set up the workflows in mere seconds.
If you’re unfamiliar with APIs and how you’d go about connecting different applications, Integrately has helpful how-to videos embedded for many of the applications in their library.
While Integrately doesn’t allow you to parse and modify data the way you can in Integromat, you can still modify data within workflows. The output can be text, numbers, or dates, and you can also insert fields on the right side.
Integromat's Top Features
Integromat’s best features are the drag-and-drop workflow builder, the error handling and data parsing capabilities, and the library of over 650 applications. It’s quite advanced and may be slightly intimidating to those who are not familiar with using software tools, but we found that it was not difficult to master.
