SharpSpring Integrates With PieSync to Provide Easy Two-Way Contact Syncing With Dozens of Cloud-Based Apps

GAINESVILLE, Fla., Oct. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SharpSpring, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHSP), a global provider of cloud-based marketing technologies, announced today the launch of its native integration with PieSync, a B2B connection service that allows users to perform two-way contact syncing between their favorite cloud apps in real time.

Using PieSync’s point-and-click interface, SharpSpring customers can build connections with dozens of other cloud-based platforms — such as Google Contacts, Zoho, Zendesk, Pipedrive, and SugarCRM — without the need for a developer. The automatic contact syncing feature eliminates the need for manual imports and exports, which helps reduce duplicate contacts and other errors.

Ewout Meyns, PieSync CEO, said, “We are breaking down the siloes between different SaaS applications by allowing users to choose specific SaaS solutions for specific needs while promising up-to-date data across all platforms. Our promise is that with your data synced across your cloud apps, you will be able to make strategic decisions without the hassle.”

SharpSpring’s platform offers an open API and native integrations with a number of third-party solutions, including Google Adwords, SalesForce, WebEx, and GoToMeeting. SharpSpring CEO Rick Carlson said the latest integration with PieSync provides an additional level of flexibility for customers.  

“The complexity of companies’ marketing technology stacks continues to grow. In fact, 74% of marketers said they are using a multi-vendor tech stack to address their business needs, according to a recent Forrester study,” Carlson said. “We built SharpSpring to be open and flexible to accommodate that trend, and this integration with PieSync is another way customers can connect SharpSpring with other applications they have in place, allowing them to focus on strategic initiatives instead of worrying about database management.”
