Australian accounting software provider Reckon has forged a partnership with online automation tool Zapier, aimed at bolstering small business productivity.
The move will enable Reckon One customers to automate repetitive admin while streamlining workflows and processes, without the need for deep technical skills.
Zapier enables users to connect the apps they use to easily automate daily tasks, without the need for coding knowledge.
Through the creation of triggers and actions, it monitors data changes in one application to trigger actions in another.
Through these, Reckon One can now be linked to over 1,000 commonly used cloud applications across eCommerce, CRM, inventory, project management and beyond.
Reckon One has created several templates for some of the most common multi-app tasks, covering integrations with Gmail, Shopify, Stripe, Infusionsoft and Cyfe.
“Today’s small business owners use an array of applications to manage their work,” Reckon CEO Sam Allert says.
“While these tools are essential, moving information from one source to another takes time that would be better spent on creating growth. Automation once required complex programming, but Zapier and Reckon have made it possible for any small business to significantly reduce its admin.”
The modular design of Reckon One means Zapier can be used to combine single functions such as task scheduling with tools from an external app, to create a bespoke business solution at an affordable cost.
“As a progressive technology company, we recognise customers would benefit by combining our best in class accounting solution with other productivity tools on the market,” Allert adds.
“The modular structure of Reckon One allows small businesses to only pay for what they need, offering the best value around. Every business has different needs, and our Zapier integration further allows owners to build a solution tailored to them.”
The standard ‘Free Forever’ plan on Zapier allows Reckon customers to create two-step zaps with other free tools, up to 100 tasks per month, and five actions, searches or triggers to be live at any time.
Additional paid plans are available.
