Flows vs. Zaps

Zapier supports traditional, one-way automation. Each Zap represents one trigger causing one action. Unito’s two-way flows enable genuine collaboration between teams. A single flow can contain multiple rules, automations, custom field mapping, and so much more.

Depth vs. breadth

Zapier supports a huge number of tools with their Zaps — over 1,500. This ecosystem is composed of simple, out-of-the-box integrations. By contrast, Unito’s approach is focused on depth of integration. The growing list of Unito integrations cover comments, custom fields, attachments, subtasks, and all the fields you need within every single flow and offers historical data syncing.

2-way, live syncing

So important, it’s worth highlighting twice! Two-way syncing means everyone has access to the information they need within the tool they already use. And this information is shared in real-time, so it’s always up-to-date everywhere.

Real-time syncing

Stop working with outdated project information. Unito automatically syncs data in real-time, so you, your team, and other stakeholders are always working with up-to-date and accurate info.

Subtasks and hierarchies

Organize your work how you see fit, even when collaborating across tools. Unito syncs subtasks so you can capture information hierarchies and sync even your most complex projects.

Attachment streaming

You shouldn't have to leave your preferred app to get the attachment you need. With Unito, you can see any synced attachments from your primary tool

Industry-leading support

No matter how customized your tool and workflow are, Unito has your back. By syncing custom fields, you’re not forced into a templated solution. Work your unique way, without sacrificing anything.

Visual workflow designer

Map out your entire workflow with Unito’s visual workflow designer. Anyone can drag and drop different tools and projects around our visual designer and draw connections between them.

Use case: Building a single source of truth

Imagine you have work stored in multiple tools that you want to consolidate into a single view — let’s say three Asana projects into a single Trello Board. You need to capture all of the essential information from Asana tasks within Trello cards, and keep both tools in sync, so you don’t have to jump back and forth between them.

Here’s what this type of setup would require in Unito and in Zapier.
