Zapier FAQ

What is Zapier?

Zapier is a third-party service that enables you to connect BarCloud to hundreds of online apps to automate tasks. The phrase that will help you pronounce it correctly is, "Zapier makes you happier."

Why is it valuable for BarCloud users?

BarCloud and Zapier save you time and money because you don't have to worry about writing custom code to connect two web-based tools.

What are Zapier's limitations as it relates to BarCloud?

Zapier is not a tool for deep data integrations between BarCloud and another online application. However, Zapier does let you create simple data integrations, including moving a piece of data or taking an action on your behalf.

What's a "Zap"?

Zapier calls a connection between two applications a "Zap". A Zap is a connection, or integration, between two apps that automates your workflow. A Zap is made of a "trigger" (ex: When I add a new customer in BarCloud...) and an "action" (ex: ...send out an SMS message). Zaps run automatically to move and manage data without any work on your part.

Do I need a Zapier account to integrate BarCloud with these other apps?

Yes. You must have an account in BarCloud, Zapier, and the other app. Customers in all pricing tiers of BarCloud have access to this integration tool.

How will BarCloud assist you in using Zapier?

The BarCloud team will assist you in setting up Zapier app integrations for inventory management and asset tracking by providing you online resources.

What is included in the Zapier free plan?

The free plan includes access to all non-premium apps, the use of 5 Zaps, and 100 tasks (i.e. every time you move a piece of data).

What is included in the Zapier paid plans?

The paid plans start at $20/month with access to premium apps, 20 Zaps, and 3,000 tasks. Visit the Zapier website for more information.
