Zapier is an app that lets you connect your Nexudus account with other external platforms such as MailChimp, Slack or Zendesk. Once linked with Zapier, you can use the software to create a Zap, which will let you automate different processes. You can have a Zap that generates a subscriber to your MailChimp account every time someone signs up to your Nexudus account. Another example is a Zap that generates a support ticket on your Zendesk account when someone sends you a message using your Nexudus Help Desk.
There is a free version of Zapier that lets you set up some Zaps. You can look at the different price plans on the following page: https://zapier.com/app/settings/billing/plan/41.
