Fivetran emerged as the ideal solution for Schüttflix due to its speed and reliability. The connectors could be set up in an hour, a process that would have taken weeks otherwise. With Fivetran as the automated pipeline in the modern data stack, Schüttflix was able to grow its data team and start benefiting from new insights. The company integrated data from HubSpot and MySQL databases to track customers from the lead stage to onboarding.

The company also set up feedback loops using slack bots that triggered individualized alerts based on data in BigQuery, triggered by Google Cloud Functions.
