Zapier Primary Use Case

Founder & CEO at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
Zapier is more on the notification side. We're doing work for a last-mile logistics company which deals with vegetables, meaning that it's farm to table. They're trying to eliminate storage and they want to make it as fresh as possible to the table itself. They have their GPS-enabled vehicles, and sometimes trucks, picking it up. So they have to track them all. They have to track all vehicles, whether it's their own or third-party, all the way, for all exceptions, and then suitably handle it. They also have the delivery sites and there are a lot of exceptions that happen. They use another third party called Bookam for last-mile delivery tracking. Again, a lot of exceptions happen that are not tracked by Bookam, so we take care of the exceptions. Those events come to us, and through Zapier we then process them all. It's third-party tracking events, with GPS events on one side, all of which are tracked by the applications. We take the events from them and push it into Zapier for orchestration, and from there on we alert the right parties. View full review »
