Integration Consulting

I’m David Gurr, and I have over 30 years’ experience of business operations, finance, sales, marketing and technical support operations.

Originally trained as a programmer, I’ve kept my tech credentials up to date too. I’m fully conversant with modern RESTful APIs, HTML, Javascript and JSON.

It was around 20 years ago that I first came across the concept of what was then called “visual programming” – the idea that you could link together logical blocks on screen to create a program. It was a nice toy, but pretty unusable in the real world. Fast-forward 20 years and that concept is now fully matured as “no-code” integration, particularly in tools such as Integromat.

Although these tool are easy to get started with, they can prove tricky for novices. Certainly, it helps to have a deeper understanding of the technical concepts. But that’s not enough … to take real advantage, you need to understand how these solutions work in the real world. What can break, how can you maintain changes, how will people use them? There’s no substitute for experience.

I’ve implemented solutions using Integromat to help automate order fulfilment for a small vintage fashion store, integrating Shopify and Xero and running through to the warehouse for order picking and despatch. I’ve implemented solutions for a medium-sized software business to tie together two different CRM systems and to allow their reseller channel to provide sales pipeline updates using a Knack database application. And I’ve linked their Learning Management System (LMS) to their CRM to streamline on-boarding processes for new resellers.
