Technology Tools Product Review- TaskPipes

Tehnology-tools-product-review-taskpipesTaskPipes enables you to automate repetitive manual data processing and data extraction tasks. It is an online interface from a Startup based in London, founded by Fraser Atkins. Here you can create different pipes or processes for specific data related tasks. It allows you to get data from any source, whether it is an API endpoint, a CSV file, an email attachment, FTP folder or spreadsheet.

You can filter the data, reformat it and make manipulations the way you want. This data can be exported to a range of locations like uploading to a server, generating a PDF report, inserting into a database, a CRM application or another API endpoint. You can execute a pipe anytime you want, it can also be scheduled or run by trigger mechanism.

TaskPipes saves you a significant amount of time that is spent on boring, repetitive tasks of creating reports from raw data. Its user interface has been designed in such a way that even non-technical users can perform complex processes.
