You can't afford to waste time dealing with disjointed business tools. Repetitive manual tasks for transferring data between apps can eat up a lot of time and may cause errors. The best business ecosystem is the one where your different apps are tightly integrated and work together out of the box. That's exactly what Zoho One aims to do, with our integrated suite of apps to manage all areas of your business.
However, you may still prefer to work with independent apps and may have difficulty passing data between them, or automating workflows intelligently. Our in-house app Zoho Flow helps you tie these apps together and bridge the gap. We also rolled out our integration with Zapier and Automate.io for the same. We've since added some new Zoho Mail integrations that let you choose your preferred iPaaS(Integration Platform as a Service) platform—Integromat, Blendr.io, and Workato.
Connect apps and turn manual tasks into automated workflows
IPaaS platforms like Integromat, Blendr.io, and Workato help lighten your manual workload without having to worry about code, by following the trigger-action model. You can connect one or more apps with Zoho Mail, and define triggers in each app for performing actions in another.
You can use pre-built templates and customize them to your needs, or build your own and publish them. You can either keep it simple or create complex flows by using logic conditions to take automated actions, and avoid duplicate data.
Here are a few examples to help you get the idea:
Prompt notification emails and automated subscriptions with Integromat scenarios
When your customers or potential leads subscribe to your newsletters through support mail replies, you can convert them directly into subscribers in Mailchimp. Integromat's pre-built integration does the job for you by watching emails that appear in a specified folder.
If you use Google Forms for your internal responses or client requests, you can get emails with details instantly, every time a form is filled and submitted, by connecting Google Forms with Zoho Mail.

Create new leads and accept subscription changes with Blendr.io blends
Every lead is a potential customer waiting to be converted. Don't lose any by making manual entries. Convert contact information from emails into leads in Marketo by creating a data blend between the two.
While reaching as many leads as possible is important, it is also important to accept people's choice to opt out. Blend Zoho Mail and Adroll to watch mail content and detect unsubscribers.

Use Workato recipes to post messages and get email updates based on keywords
Some emails demand immediate attention. Even more so if it is from your big client and has words like “immediately” and “ASAP”. Connect Zoho Mail with Slack using Workato to push messages to your work channel every time you receive an email from an important contact with particular content.
Your Feedly can be your go-to place for articles, news, and videos. But some items may interest you more than others. So, cook up a Workato recipe to receive email updates whenever an article with a specific tag appears.
