"Easy, seamless integration. Setup was just a few clicks; have used it everyday since."

Robin W. , Senior Project Manager @ HyperDrive Interactive

Automations vs. flows

Workato recipes only sync data in a single direction. That means you need a complicated network of recipes to simulate a 2-way relationship between apps or tools. Unito lets you connect your tools bidirectionally, which means changes made in one interface are automatically updated in the other. No extra steps required.

Breadth vs. ease of use

With enough setup time, you can create a decent data flow between your tools with Workato. But not everyone has the resources, knowledge, or time to build that kind of workflow efficiently. Unito enables anyone in your organization to create a flow in minutes with minimal prep time thanks to a simple, point-and-click interface.

Budget-busting or just right?

Workato's plans are built for enterprise-sized budgets. Why pay for something you don't need? Unito offers a 14-day free trial so you can get comfortable with the interface and ramp up as you go.

Features you'll find only in Unito

Real-time 2-way syncing

A bidirectional, or 2-way, sync gives everyone access to the information they need in the tools they're already using. Anything you connect with Unito can be synced in real-time, so it's always up-to-date in your interface of choice.

Industry-leading support

Many of our plans come with a free onboarding session so you can start off on the right foot with our live support staff.
