I’m Ewout Meyns and I’m the Product Manager of Data Sync by HubSpot. I’m very excited to finally release data sync to all of you here!! I wanted to make this post to introduce myself and share what we’ve been working on the past few months.
I’m happy to be part of this community that's why I'll be doing a Live AMA here in the community on May 5. Click here to save the date.
Interesting fact, data sync wasn’t built from scratch.
Back in November 2019 HubSpot acquired the Belgium-based company PieSync, which I founded along with my friend Mattias Putman 8 years ago.
Over the past 1,5 years, we’ve been hard at work to plug our world-class sync engine inside of HubSpot, rebuilding the existing integrations. Our Ghent office has become a full-blown division of HubSpot. Ironically though, most of data sync was actually developed from our own homes!
PieSync and HubSpot always had a shared interest, strategy, and philosophy and if we wanted to be acquired by any company it would have been them. That's why the entire PieSync is still here and excited for this new evolution.
About Data Sync by HubSpot
We’ve just launched 25 integrations that feature data sync, including Aircall, Airtable, Mindbody, Ringcentral, Outreach, Xero, and many more. You can find them grouped in the App Marketplace collection. They are super easy to set up and free!
Don't expect us to stop here: we plan to support more apps and expand data sync’s functionality with more objects and features over time. Also, right now data sync is being released as standalone apps in the marketplace. Later, we want data sync to be the foundational technology that powers deep and rich integrations.
Starting your sync couldn’t be more simple:
- Go to the HubSpot's App Marketplace and look for the app you need
- Install and follow the instructions to authenticate your app
- Set up your filters - what do you need synced?
- Set up field mappings - what properties should sync?
This knowledge base article shows these steps in greater detail.
