Make App Developer, how can I list my app on Make?
Do you know this situation: You develop an automation in Make or plan to develop one and then realise that your app is not supported at all? Only webhooks or HTTP requests are possible, but not the entire tool? This situation is really annoying and we know it very well: customers use specific tools that are not (yet) supported by Make .
Of course, we could wait until the app is launched and try to speed up the process using Integromat's request function. Or we could build the app ourselves. This is usually much faster and more flexible: we can connect the API endpoints that we know are particularly relevant.
This can lead to parallel developments, for example because other freelancers had the same idea or because Integromat has launched the same app in the meantime. This is exactly why we have developed our Appmarket.space: Here we offer the apps for Make and other automation platforms that we ourselves, as Make app developers, but also other developers, have already released. Here we give you a small overview of the apps we have released so far.
GoCardless App for Make
GoCardless is a payment service that enables one-time and recurring payments. It is particularly popular for simple online payment processing. This is exactly why GoCardless should be ideally linked to your accounting. The functions include clients, mandates and payments.
Vosfactures App for Make
Vosfactures is a French invoicing software for personalised receipts. Thanks to our Vosfactures app for Make, invoices can be created, documents edited or contacts managed automatically.
Accounting is perhaps the area in which we have already automated the most projects. Why is that? We explain it by saying that no one really enjoys accounting. And since the entire area is highly standardised and regulated, it also lends itself perfectly to automation. SMEs in particular often do part of their bookkeeping themselves, which is then handed over to tax consultants. There is a lot of software that supports this. We have already developed an Make app for some of them.
Easybill App for Make
Easybill is an accounting software specialised for the German market. It maps invoices, offers, incoming payments and receipts and can be ideally integrated with your online shop. With our easybill app for Make, numerous actions can be carried out in easybill. These include documents, customers, positions, attachments, receipts and invoices. These can be deleted, created, reused or updated and thus simplify your accounting.
sevDesk App for Make
With sevDesk you can easily do your accounting yourself. You can write invoices and digitise receipts easily. And now sevDesk is also available for Make. The popular accounting software has not yet been available as an app for Make. In sevDesk you can also automatically receive invoices, create documents, call up users or create contacts.
bexio App for Make
bexio also offers accounting, but describes itself as business software. Because bexio can not only do invoicing, but also contact management, project and time recording, warehouse and product management. Thanks to our bexio app for Make, you can automate invoicing, create and automate customers, manage contacts or, of course, make an API call.
One of the greatest strengths of Make is that it does not require any code and can therefore also be used by people who have no programming knowledge. But this can sometimes also be a weakness. Because with just a little bit of code, more can often be realised. This is exactly why we have developed the two Make apps below.
Python App for Make
The same applies to our Python app for Make. Because Python can also be very helpful sometimes when we want to integrate processes comprehensively. Just add your code to the Python app and it will be executed.
Individual apps for Make
Ever feel like you need a certain app that's not on your favourite platform? Because we've seen it a thousand times. Requests are responded to slowly or not at all, throwing your schedule backwards. That's why we created Appmarket.space, the place for helpful apps and custom integration.
Appmarket.space is the platform for all those who are looking for further apps or have developed one and would like to offer it.
You need a specific Make app and need someone to develop it for you? Feel free to contact us and ideally send us the app with the link to the API documentation. We develop Make apps on demand and individually.
Cloud Integration, iPaaS, SaaS, BPA… Ough, hard to keep track of all these terms. They are currently used frequently (and increasingly) in the context of automation, and it is sometimes difficult to make a clear distinction and distinction. We have already written blog posts on the terms iPaaS, SaaS and BPA, but we’ll take them up again here to make the difference.
But let’s start with cloud integration, because that’s the central umbrella term in which we embed all the other technologies in this blog post.
To illustrate these advantages, an example is suitable that we know well from our everyday work as an automation agency:
The central data to be used here is the data of a major customer. This can be the simplest information, such as the address. This address is required in numerous but completely different processes in the company: on the one hand, for correct invoicing in accounting. On the other hand, in the CRM system, where all the data of the large customer is also stored. But the address is also important in sales, for example, when employees go to the sales meeting on site.
Now the customer announces that the address of the company has changed after a move. This information will reach you by e-mail. There are now two options:
01. The e-mail is forwarded to all affected departments, accounting, sales, customer service, marketing… All persons open their corresponding program, CRM, accounting software, marketing tools (such as newsletter marketing) and change the data already stored there of the customer. This means that in multiple applications, different people do exactly the same thing: change one address. 02. But there is also an alternative: By connecting your applications, thus by integrizing them, the customer’s e-mail, or rather the information it contains about the address change, is automatically passed on to all affected applications: CRM, accounting, marketing, ERP. This does not require any clicks, because the cloud integration detects a trigger, i.e. address change, and thus automatically starts the process.
What sounds unimpressive in a single process becomes more effective when such a process occurs several times a day or weekly. Because there is a lot of data that is available in different applications and should always be correct. If these applications are cloud applications they are suitable for cloud integration.
But cloud integration doesn’t just happen. There are now a variety of applications that enable and implement this. Such tools usually allow us to link the relevant cloud applications on a central platform and define clear rules on when, how, where, how much data should be passed on and what happens to them.
IPaaS, SaaS, BPA, ABC – who can still see through it?
To realize cloud integration, there are various applications and technologies that are sometimes used interchangeably.
Cloud integration cannot be done without SaaS, iPaaS and BPA
Cloud integration is rather an umbrella term that includes numerous technologies, such as SaaS, iPaaS and BPA, and this is also absolutely necessary. Cloud integration is a concept that is made possible by appropriate technologies.
However, all terms share the commonality that they are cloud-based and thus offer enormous potential for growth and scaling. In addition, they are often cheaper to implement and maintain because changed requirements are easy to implement.
As an independent automation agency, we implement cloud integration according to your requirements. We use a variety of SaaS tools and iPaas (strictly speaking BPA) software. Together we find individual solutions that are flexible and scalable.
