SnapLogic calls their pre-built connectors Snaps. And they have 700+ snaps to connect and integrate data. This includes major relational and NoSQL databases, SaaS platforms, and more. So, you can be sure that major CRM, accounting, email marketing, and other SaaS apps are there. But if you cannot find your connector, call your Customer Relations Manager for a custom Snap.

SnapLogic regularly updates Snaps to ensure 100% compatibility.
