Paragon is a platform that lets you visually build, run, and manage workflows.
Paragon supports direct integration with popular databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, Firebase) and APIs (Twilio, Sendgrid, Google Sheets, Slack). Here's the full list of our currently supported integrations.
If you need to connect with a service that we don't support direct integration with yet, you can connect with any API via HTTP request.
It generally takes around five minutes to understand the concepts of Paragon, and under an hour for it to feel natural.
Paragon users have built workflows for everything from data pipelines to automating user engagement campaigns and even entire notification systems.
Here are some examples of use cases built with Paragon:
-Segment and engage inactive users through email or SMS
-Send user notifications in response to in-app events
-Generate and send a daily metrics report via Slack
-Parse documents uploads via OCR and process the results
-Sync transaction data from Stripe to your database
We take security extremely seriously at Paragon and have an entire section dedicated to how Paragon securely handles your data.
Zapier is well suited for basic tasks that send single objects of data from one point to another. Paragon is designed for more complex workflows that need to process large sets of data or run custom logic. For example, if you're looking to accomplish something like "find the inactive users in my database and send them re-engagement messages every week", then Paragon is probably for you.
If you're familiar with JSON and basic API requests or database queries, you'll be right at home with Paragon. Many Paragon users are non-technical people like product managers, who are able to use Paragon to build workflows without relying on engineers.
Even if we don't support native integration with a service you need, you can still connect to it using Paragon's HTTP Request step if the service has a public API.
That being said - we're adding new integrations every week, so let us know if there's an integration you need and we'll add it to our roadmap!
