A synchronisation is a data flow that navigates from one application to another. This data flow, or workflow, can go both ways, for example if you want a contact to stay up-to-date in Shopify and Hubspot: by editing the contact in Shopify, it will be updated in Hubspot, and vice versa. A synchronisation can also be a one-way transaction, and would instead be qualified as a data import or export. An example of data export is downloading your Shopify orders into your Xero accounting system. Both types of synchronisation are supported by Synchron.io.
A workflow is a flow of data from one application to another. This implies that there is a source application and a target application. The data from the source application is imported and translated by Synchron.io, which then relays this data to the target application. Sometimes, the target application will respond with a message that Synchron.io will pass back onto the source application. A workflow is a data flow between two applications.
Synchron.io supports a list of applications related to e-commerce, accounting or customer relationship. If the application that you wish to synchronise is not in the list, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we regularly add new applications requested by our customers. Synchron.io can connect to virtually any software or cloud service, as long as they offer an external API.
An API, or application programming interface, can be seen as a library provided by a software. For instance, the Shopify API provides information about orders, customers or deliveries. Synchron.io can retrieve those informations by communicating directly with the API. It would be impossible to interact with Shopify and import your data without an API. For this reason, we can only synchronise applications or cloud services that offer an external API.
We regularly add new applications, as long as they are popular and likely to appeal to the largest number of people. Feel free to contact us by specifying the name of the app or cloud service that you wish to connect to Synchron.io, and we will let you know if this integration is possible or already planned.
