If you’ve ever checked out Evernote Trunk you know there are hundreds of useful apps that are compatible with Evernote and Evernote Business. Zapier is a Web-based app that’s all about automating your tasks so you can spend time on what really needs to get done.

Do you use Evernote, Gmail, Basecamp or Salesforce? Chances are Zapier’s got you covered with more than 200 applications already in its library of services.  I had a chance to chat with Bryan Helmig and Wade Foster, co-founders of Zapier.

Tell us about Zapier and what it does.
Zapier is an easy way for businesses to hook up the tools they are using in their business. For instance, a real estate agent might use Dropbox or Box to store a lot of his contracts. With Zapier the agent can automatically save those contracts to Dropbox when they are sent to his Gmail address. Or he can get a text message when he gets a new lead on his site.

Those in the real estate industry have access to so many productivity tools. What makes Zapier different?
Zapier doesn’t work by itself like most productivity tools. Zapier helps you tie together existing tools that you are already using. For instance, you might use MailChimp as a way to send bulk email to other real estate agents in town to let them know when you have a new listing. Zapier can help you add new agents to that list via Gmail. So no matter what productivity tools you are using, Zapier can help you tie them together and make you even more efficient.

You offer many price points. The free version offers five Zaps — what do you think would be the top five Zaps a real estate agent could use to better his business?
Great question. Here’s some that I would use if I were a real estate agent:

The great thing about these Zaps is that even if you don’t use that specific service, but you use one slightly similar, Zapier likely supports that, too. If you are a developer and want to add your service to Zapier, check out its developer platform.
