Recipe for business innovation

Workato is the fabric with which you can weave a very intelligent nervous system for your modern enterprise. Recipes are automated workflows that connect apps to complete tasks composed by you based on a combination of apps, triggers and actions.

Choose apps, set a trigger and add multiple actions to automate

  • Apps


    Cloud based or on-premise application that record or trigger various business events e.g. Salesforce(CRM), Marketo (Marketing), Workday (HR), SAP (ERP), ServiceNow (Operations), Zendesk (Customer Support)
  • Triggers


    Business events that will kick off the recipe to complete actions automatically.
    Example: New opportunity is created in Salesforce, contract is signed in Docusign, ticket is updated in JIRA.
  • Actions


    Set of events that you want to accomplish based on the triggering event.
    Example: Create an invoice, notify on email and Slack, create a ticket in Zendesk.
