Customer Spotlight: Zapier

Posted on December 16, 2011 by Team Tropo

We are excited to feature Zapier on this week’s Tropo Customer Spotlight! Today I sat down with Wade Foster, one of the co-founders of Zapier, to discuss their business and learn more about how they are using Tropo for their Instant Messaging services.

What is Zapier?

Zapier allows you to “zap your apps!” You can build unique integrations between your favorite applications, one mouse click at a time without writing a single line of code!

  • Own Your Data: Zapier makes it easy to import and export data automagically with your favorite web apps. Don’t get locked in.
  • No Data Entry: Quit filling out the same information between different applications, and let Zapier do the heavy lifting for you.
  • Fill-in Missing Features: Never be at the mercy of vendors to build features or integrations. Use Zapier to add missing functionality.

Zapier uses Python, Django, and the Tropo Scripting API to deliver Instant Messaging services to users on AIM, GTalk, MSN, and Yahoo!
