Parabola

Automation Builder Without Code
(12 Ratings) Write Review

Parabola is an automation builder tool that lets you automate repetitive tasks without writing any code or seeking help from developers. It offers a graphical user interface to make the workflow building process seamless and intuitive. One of the major benefits of using Parabola is that live sources can be connected to create these automated processes. Triggering actions and activating a schedule for each of these steps is hassle-free and adds advanced capabilities to the builder. Whether it’s a simple two-step automation or a complex workflow, the tool is well-equipped to handle both of these requirements with equal ease. Parabola offers a huge collection of third party tools which you can easily plug and play with. Apart from allowing to create completely new automation rules, the tool offers pre-made templates which are commonly used for the most repetitive tasks including server monitoring, performance reviews, encryption status, and much more.

(Reviewed on 02 October 2019) "Parabola - Saved so much time"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and power of the actions. We were able to jump right into Parabola and not having seen it before and figure out what actions we needed and how to configure them to suit our needs. We were also able to do everything we wanted with the actions they have.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is a little unclear when you start building a flow for the first time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Parabola has saved me from manually having to pull data out of one system, match it then create it in another. I was spending about 2 hours once a week doing this manual process then I found Parabola and built a flow that does this automatically.

Now my process runs every day and I never have to touch it. Plus, no manual steps means I'm not going to mess something up by clicking the wrong thing or fat fingering something.

(Reviewed on 14 January 2019) "The affordable IPaaS for small businesses."

What do you like best?

How simple it is to get up and running. I was able to hook up our project management tool, Wrike, to our resource management tool, HubPlanner, in a about a day and a half. The interface is easy to read and navigate and there are plenty of transformation steps at your disposal allowing you to change the data any way you need it. The price is more afforable to smaller businesses like us than any other platform out there. Sure, Dell Boomi, JitterBit, Tray.io and other platforms are really nice and have loads of functionality, but they were just too expensive to justify getting two simple systems talking to each other internally that could have been built manually in a week. The support! I have literally probably taken a day's worth of time from Brian having him help me architect our current system. I have also even gotten help from the CEO when Brian was busy. They are incredibly helpful and supportive so any questions you might have, you can be sure they will be addressed usually within 5-15 minutes via their online chat.

What do you dislike?

There is a slight learning curve, but anyone with any kind of background in computer science or technology should be able to pick it up fairly quickly. Those without that background can still pick it up but it will take a bit longer, but do not be discouraged as it is not written in a foreign coding language and the support team is there to help. I got real-time answers from from not only one of their designers but also from the CEO of the company. They not only helped me design, plan, and verify the viability of solving our problem on their platform, but also supported me throughout that learning phase and suggesting architecture to solve certain roadblocks that come up. The only other thing is that sometimes the flows get hung up on something, but they do always finish within 5-10 minutes and will resolve themselves. This normally only happens to me with Google Sheets Import/Export steps. The team is aware and have either already fixed it or are working on it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a platform that could take our systems and get their APIs communicating with each other in a quick and easy fashion. Our initial problem was that Wrike didn't have the best resource management built in so we began using a different software for just that purpose. We then needed to get the time entries out of Wrike and into HubPlanner so we could have real-time statistics for planning and decision making purposes. With Parabola, we now not only have both of those systems talking to each other but we have an effective and affordable platform for the future should we need to get other systems talking to each other. Sure, I could have coded this manually, but having Parabola is a life saver so I do not have to spend my free or company time building it manually which would have taken at least 5x longer for me to get fully functioning.

(Reviewed on 17 December 2018) "Automation Heaven"

What do you like best?

The biggest issue with "integrations" is that there is always a hook. Either only certain data connects, or it maps in a weird way, or it only batches on a daily basis...the lists goes on and on. Parabola makes automating my reports, my systems and my client's systems SO much easier. Plus, it's a quick integration on the API to get any data set loaded.

What do you dislike?

Literally nothing. There is no downside. It is very inexpensive, flexible, visual and easy to use. I guess the only downside is now I will never go back to using my old systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There's no need to think twice here. The pricing and the product itself are absolutely awesome. It has actually changed the way I look at my business and at other's businesses. Whenever there's a question or concern around data, reporting or marketing automation, it is no longer a concern.

Parabola has become part of our operational stack cross-departmentally.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been dealing with siloed data for years in my business, as well as for clients. Everything from in-depth Square and Shopify integrated reporting, to pulling reports from Intercom (what a headache, and combining data between native DB's, Salesforce and Pardot. This list goes on and on.

Frankly, I use Parabola to automate all marketing and data needs.

(Reviewed on 17 October 2018) "My go-to favorite tool!"

What do you like best?

As a marketing person, the power that Parabola has put in my hands to be able to pull data from one source, supplement it with data from another, reformat it and send it to its destination via API, google sheet or csv export (there's more destinations than that, but that's what I use, has allowed me to often bypass the need for developer, analyst or 3rd party analytics tool. Also as someone who loved to mess around in Yahoo Pipes back in the day, this feels a bit like a modern version of that, just a lot easier to use and nothing to do with RSS feeds :

What do you dislike?

My only nitpicky complaint is once you start to have a lot of Flows, there needs to be a way to organize them so you can find them quicker.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When starting a flow it's a lot easier to build if you know what you want your output file to look like ahead of time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parabola is the essential middleware workhorse that is powering daily updates to dashboards in Google Sheets and Data Studio. It has also been a lifesaver in during an ecommerce migration and building product mapping flows for old, new and future product imports and mapping 301 redirects.

(Reviewed on 02 October 2018) "Best Saas Experience I could have hoped for"

What do you like best?

The UI is terrific. I've tried to do start doing API stuff through Terminal or Zapier in the past and it just caused me to get frustrated. This is the perfect solution for someone with understanding of the concepts but not the technical skills to see it through.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the cost? If I'm only going to run a single integration it's a little more expensive than say Zapier. But that's only if you're comparing the two tools directly. If you think about it in terms of the value delivered for the price paid, it's absolutely worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Talk to Brian in support when you get stuck, he's super helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automating the submission of data from unskilled people to very complicated and difficult-to-work-with apps. I'm thinking hiring a dev would have cost us $1000. Parabola is killer.

(Reviewed on 06 September 2018) "Automation made easy!"

What do you like best?

Parabola offers a fantastic SaaS ETL tool that any professional can master no matter their level of programming experience thanks to it's Intuitive UI. We have been able to automate processes and transform large amounts of data seamlessly thanks to Parabola. Their customer support live-chat is real time responsive, timely and easy-to find, and has gone beyond my expectations to help.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, still developing product with quick updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Parabola to automate data curation and transformation. We are saving tons of time each week.

(Reviewed on 30 August 2018) "This is what ETL should look like"

What do you like best?

Parabola enables professionals of all skill levels to extract and manipulate data at a speed previously unseen. This is thanks to an intuitive UI which stands out as a diamond in the rough in the typically unforgiving field of data science and engineering.

What do you dislike?

The number of destinations one can extract to is lacking. That said, the Parabola team appears to be actively working on this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a data engineer, I can technically accomplish much of what Parabola does via scripting, but I choose to use Parabola regardless as spares me the massive time and effort to perform these tasks otherwise. This speed opens an entirely new channel of communication: when we are gifted with the ability to extract information as fast as we can conceive it, meeting room conversations of "what is possible" are answered immediately.

Process automation, scraping for online data, data calculation, report creation and others.
