The price! Also being able to populate fields across many objects at the same time and then load the changes. That's great in comparison to a tool like Data Loader for example where you cannot load to multiple objects.
Because we use Salesforce with Causeview a transaction has 3-4 objects (Transaction, Allocation, Payment and Soft Credit). We sometimes have difficulty uploading the payments and allocations when linked together. So for each load we need an additional step for linking those 2 objects together. As Skyvia populates the fields of different objects at the same time, and sometimes this produces errors.
Great Potential Horrendus Customer Support
It's cool but frustrating especially with poor customer support.
Intuitive, and does what we need it to do.
The worst customer support. If you have an issue it will usually won't be addressed with an email for at least 24 hours. When you get a response it will most likely be a cut and paste from from their online documentation and very stingy on elaborating on how to really resolve an issue and trying to help.
Response from Skyvia
We are terribly sorry that you have faced such an issue.
Could you please provide us with the email you used to contact our Support Team so that we could investigate it?
Great Customer Service
Excellent tool, very easy to implement, configure and use. It is powerful and reliable
automation of reports and data synchronization processes
Excellent tool, very easy to implement, configure and use, It is powerful when processing large volumes of data, task scheduling is reliable. The support is very good
No alerts when processing fails, would be a good alert improvement via email when a scheduled task fails
Skyvia, the beefier version of Zapier
Skyvia has some of the most advance features to connect two softwares together. From the get-go, you're introduced to the actual API call and really get the opportunity to be granular in the connection. We're specifically using it for a FTP/CSV file ingestion for Mailchimp
It does take some time to get used to it, so its more recommended for those with software knowledge.
Ease of Use and able to test right from the beginning
SkyVia is being used to provide the bi-directional interface between SalesForce and our ERP Data warehouse. It has performed wonderfully in setting up various integration jobs that can be scheduled to implement the interfaces in a fraction of the time it would take on other systems.
The documentation for the software was excellent, which made the setup for connecting to the SQL and SalesForce sources quite easy to accomplish. The integration steps are easy to setup and with the free version you can test the software to make sure it will meet your needs.
It would be better if the backup solution did more than just the data when backing up SalesForce data. The backup feature doesn't handle the metadata and the files like other robust backup solutions.
Powerful features even in each module
Overall experience has been great
This tool met our requirements very well. Good value for the cost. Worthy product functionality and performance. Give it a try.
We are using Skyvia to integrate data from our cloud services to on-premise databases and back to the cloud. We primarily use Skyvia for connecting to Salesforce to pull down data into our other on-premise databases.
Simple data loading, much easier than the standard data loader from salesforce, UI is simple to understand.
Some of the error notifications could be improved but it's not vital.
Customizable replication to Redshift
I easily copied data from Dynamics CRM org into Amazon Redshift for using them by another department which doesn't have access to the entire CRM system. Skyvia allowed to replicate records matching certain conditions, only those which we wanted to move.
Skyvia has enough options to perform replication process. Also, it was easy for us to set up and use the tool. Reliable product which provides smooth integration.
If Skyvia team adds public API I'll say that the tool is perfect.
Data export has never been easier for our company
Due to our security policy we need to archive historical data and store it internally. Using Skyvia we can export data as CSV and load it to SFTP on a regular basis.
Simple, fast to set up, user-friendly service interface.
Export process was too slow but I think it because of the huge amount of data.
I have been very impressed with the products I have used
It is easy. For someone who does not have an extensive background in this area, I was able to dive in and get started pretty quickly....without having to slow down to learn MySQL queries, etc. With all of the tools, out-of-the-box integrations and generally pretty clear documentation I found connecting our systems with Skyvia to be a good experience.
When an integration runs, It would be great if there were options for sending/receiving the results...at the very least, receiving an email with the csvs for any failures attached. I am told that this is already on the roadmap.
Generally speaking though - very happy with the service to date
I think the suite of apps are fantastic - we rely on Skyvia cloud data integration connector every day.
Would be nice to see a plan that allowed for very small databases (ours has less than 5k records, for example) to be synchronised with high frequency.
Skyvia offers great value for low cost
We use Skyvia to export CSV files files from Salesforce and put them to Google Drive. The integration is running every hour and works stable.
The platform is easy to configure and works reliably. It was one of the least expensive tools available that fully met our requirements.
No cons as Skyvia platform works perfectly well.
I used Skyvia to integrate my Salesforce contacts with Mailchimp and keep data (first name, last name, email, etc) in sync. I had some difficulties setting up the integration, as not everything was clear at first, but when I finished I got just what I needed! Integration worked perfectly! I really like this service for powerful functional and supported list of connectors.
So far we are very happy using Skyvia
Skyvia helped me with Salesforce sync to SQL database
We were going from Salesforce to an existing SQL database. We handled all of our day to day in Salesforce except for commissions, which we calculated and paid from the SQL database. What we needed the sync function to do is to keep both systems up to date so that the records are in sync. Skyvia helped us with no need to write a code.
Sync data up-to-date, flexible price and an opportunity to start with a free plan.
The support is great but the speed could be faster. I assume it is because of different time zones.
Convenient no coding tool
Apart from the actual product being well good for its money, I would like to specifically point out their customer support, those guys definitely know what they are talking about, I can count on them to come up with unexpected solution with my problem in a very efficient time frames.
Only suggestion that i can think of is to add more value packages (e.g. package where you pay only for transmitted data).
Great tool to sync and manage information!"
We are managing data integration between our CRM and other tools and databases.
It works great for that!
It's a very stable platform and very easy of use.
We've been using Skyvia since a couple of years, and the support team is also fantastic.
We would love to have alerts on error. I hope this feature comes soon. :)
User-friendly and easy to understand environment
Good. I've been passively using Skyvia since your early days. The product improved a lot and I hope Skyvia will be able to be better than Dell Boomi one day. The product is much simpler for people with a non-tech background.
While using Google Drive to pick-up a CSV file, if the CSV file is deleted from the folder and a new file with the same name is uploaded to the same folder, the process on Skyvia needs to be updated as a file becomes missing from Import Task -> Source Definition.
Your tool is very intuitive and easy to learn
As a solution architect I've used you product to pitch to customers and positioned Skyvia as a medium to enterprise grade integration solution with a lot of OOB connectors.
It would be nice to see some more customer loyalty programs. For example, I should probably get early adopter pricing or discounts.
No coding solution to integrate PostgreSQL and Zoho
Easiness in setup integration between the database and Zoho CRM, scheduled integration, CSV import, Importing feature.
Reliability - in case of errors retry logic is a little bit complicated, you need to manually retry the sync or manipulate data (but that's the case only for this specific connectors)
Congrats for creating an amazing product!
I think Skyvia is an amazing tool and I had great experience with customer service. I was interacting with Mariia. She was very knowledgeable, responsive and helpful.
Can't remember anything. Skyvia engineering team was also fast at adding missing features and enhancing the service quickly.
