- emnify enables no-code IoT solutions with workflow automation tool Zapier
- Rapidly growing no-code economy empowers non-developer teams with automation tools to streamline processes and drive productivity
BERLIN, July 13th 2021 — emnify, the leading cloud communication platform provider for IoT, has launched its new integration with workflow automation tool Zapier, making it the first IoT CPaaS provider to offer customers no-code automation for cellular IoT management.
For IoT solution providers operating connected products globally, efficient internal processes for device deployment, troubleshooting, and support are critical. emnify's integration with Zapier allows businesses to build trigger-based operational workflows – quickly and intuitively – using the tools that work best for them. emnify customers can now automate IoT device and connectivity management at scale – with a few simple clicks.
PiCo, an Australian smart-retail solution provider, is among the first users of emnify’s Zapier integration. Andrew Lowe, managing partner at PiCo, commented: “Zapier has been a great help to us in managing projects globally across disparate platforms, and we have about 15 Zaps already in use. With this integration, we were able to rapidly integrate emnify into our project management tool that manages workflows across three continents in under five minutes.”
By integrating with Zapier, a leading brand in the rapidly growing no-code economy, emnify can now connect with 3000+ systems worldwide, including top CRM, ERP, and project management platforms — without the need for specialist developers.
Using Zapier, IoT operations and support teams can select pre-defined emnify triggers or actions and quickly combine them with their internal tools to create automated workflows, called Zaps. The combination of cellular IoT and no-code automation increases control and visibility for IoT businesses as they scale to deploy and operate thousands of devices globally. emnify’s customers can efficiently manage and stay on top of their device connectivity using the tools they already rely on – without having to switch between applications. Benefits include:
- Increased operational efficiency – automated bulk activation and deactivation of device connectivity with the user’s management tool of choice (such as, Excel, Asana, Slack, and others).
- Faster triaging and ticket resolution – real-time, proactive alerts in the user’s management tool of choice when connectivity problems arise (for example, usage limit reached).
- Automated processes – such as automatically blocking a specific network.
Knud Kegel, VP product, emnify commented: “No-code is to source code what cloud was to on-premises servers. No-code tools enable a higher degree of autonomy for non-technical teams, enabling business teams to participate by automating workflows, building operational dashboards, and more, so that development teams can focus on more strategic engineering tasks. emnify’s goal is to enable everyone to contribute to the connected world, and no-code is critical to making that happen.”
To empower customers with more tailored workflows that streamline IoT operations on a global scale, emnify is working to expand its set of actionable cellular IoT triggers and actions on Zapier. In the future, the company plans to integrate with an even wider range of no-code tools to bring greater automation possibilities to IoT businesses.
