Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve read this far down the page, we want to shift to what our customers (and maybe you would) ask us when we first meet. These common questions will give you a sense of our value proposition and approach to which segments of the market we serve.
How Long Does it Take?
We pride ourselves on speed and accuracy. The Integrate IQ on-boarding process is extremely structured. From the beginning, we tell you what we need from you and what to expect from us, complete with deadlines for every phase of the project. Typically the process takes 2-3 weeks in total to complete.
What if My Software Isn’t Listed?
We’re not scared. As long as your software has an open API, we can connect it to HubSpot. Some of favorite projects have involved esoteric, niche softwares. Whether your software is in the cloud or the closet, odds are we’ll be able to connect it.
Can’t Zapier Do This?
Make no mistake: we LOVE Zapier and use it frequently. If Zapier has an integration that solves your problems, we strongly recommend you use it! If your integration needs to go deeper than what Zapier can provide, that’s where we come in.
How Much Does it Cost?
Every integration project comes with a one-time setup fee and a 12-month maintenance agreement.
Monthly pricing is based on number of contacts. After the initial 12-month term, clients are moved to a month-to-month agreement.
I’ve Been Told This Isn’t Possible. Is it?
99% of the time, the answer is yes, it’s possible. We encourage you to challenge us on this. If you’ve been told it can’t be done, we’re the ones to call to get a no-nonsense final answer.
I’m Not in the US – Can You Still Help?
Of course! Our integration process can work anywhere. We have expert engineers fluent in both English and Spanish, and can work with you regardless of your location.
