Cutting corners implies that you need to compromise on quality, and that being both quick and effective is unrealistic. Luckily for busy salespeople like you, that’s no longer the case.
Thanks to cutting edge automation tools like Zapier, Pipedrive users can now shave hours off their day-to-day activities by eliminating tedious data transferring tasks. Plus, you can now use Zapier Teams to share these simple automation workflows with fellow Pipedrivers.
Wait, what is Zapier?
Zapier is a tool that, when integrated with Pipedrive, bridges the gap between your sales pipeline and external tools. The way it works is that you create Zaps that act as triggers when an action is performed.
What is an action?
An action in Pipedrive can be anything from a generated activity to an information update. In either case, these actions result in another action being triggered in a third party app via Zapier. Fun fact: this also works the other way around.
What makes Zapier so handy is that it allows you to explore beyond the list of direct integrations with Pipedrive. In fact, there is little you can’t do with your Zaps, as Zapier enables you to effortlessly mold hundreds of apps into your Pipedrive experience.

Zap 1: Zapier and automated emails
Communication is the key to sealing deals, and while Pipedrive allows you to manually send emails to contacts, there’s an even easier solution. Gmail users can use Zapier to connect their Gmail and Pipedrive accounts. They can then set up a Zap to send email templates when a deal is moved from one particular stage to another.

Setting these two lovebirds up on Zapier may not be complicated, but there are a lot of variations and options available. That’s why we’ve put together a quick guide on how to get started.
Zap 3: Zapier and Intercom
xPipedrive may be designed to help you track leads, but Intercom was built to help you capture them. That’s why this Zapier integration is incredibly handy if you’re looking to eliminate some manual data entry work and, let’s be honest, who isn’t?
Now you can automatically add new deals to your pipeline when a new Intercom user is created. Fuse your lead generation and tracking efforts and find out how to start using this Zap here.
