Zapier Integrates with Slack’s Workflow Builder to Expand Automation Opportunities

Slack’s Workflow Builder gets supercharged with 20+ additional apps and over one hundred Zapier actions without leaving Slack

Zapier—the leader in automation for small business—announced a new integration with Slack’s Workflow Builder. The integration enables users to interact with 20+ top apps on Zapier’s platform, directly within Slack.

Slack is the leading channel-based messaging platform, used by millions to align their teams, unify their systems, and drive their businesses forward. Zapier’s integration with Slack’s Workflow Builder, which allows Slack users to create custom, automated workflows, empowers Slack users to choose the apps they want and save time every day.

“People use multiple apps daily to get work done and are eager for solutions that allow them to save time and do meaningful work,” said Cody Jones, Head of Partnerships at Zapier. “In response, many SaaS providers are increasing their investment in automation software and turning to Zapier to complement and accelerate their automation ambitions. Zapier’s solutions empower SaaS providers to bring best-in-class automation to users right within their products, for free.”
