What is Zapier?
Zapier is an online automation tool that can be used to connect different applications. Zapier is designed to be user friendly, flexible, and stable, and is a great way to introduce automation to your business processes and cut down on time spent manually moving handling data.

You can even create automations to follow up on and start qualifying these leads, all within the Zapier interface.
