Insider’s Scoop: What Are the Most Used Apps by Certified Make Partners

Oct 30, 2020 | 4 minutes

In September 2019, we launched our Partner Program, hoping to get enthusiastic automators onboard to help us spread the power of Make. 

A little over a year later we are proud to announce that the program became successful beyond our imagination. 

Today, we are celebrating the 300+ partners that have achieved “Certified” status, spanning 56 countries and 51 languages.

What is a certified Make partner?

Certified Make Partners provide automation services to help customers integrate and streamline their workflows and businesses, and they use Make to do it. 

You can see them as the ultimate Make specialists. They evaluate and optimize workflows and processes within an organization by designing, creating, and maintaining apps integrations. 

In order to celebrate this special occasion, we want to shine the spotlight on our partners. With this in mind, we asked them about their favorite apps. 

When it comes to apps, few opinions carry more weight than the ones from those who automate every single day, and here’s what they told us.

Favorites among partners

When talking to our partners about apps, we realized one thing: no size fits all. 

Different tools are used for different industries and business sizes, and we ended up with a mile-long list of apps, big and small, that dominate the work of our partners. 

While that list is too long for a blog article, we noticed a pattern. A handful of apps just ruled the arena by a long shot:

Slack outshined just about every other tool when it came to internal communications. ClickUp proved to be versatile and used for purposes of communication, customer management, and more. And Stripe was chosen as the preferred payment platform.


Our partners made their picks, so how about you? 

We know integrations are a world in itself, which is why we have our partners on hand to help you overcome the obstacles to effective and automated work. 

Feel free to get in touch with them to get the most out of your tools. 

If otherwise, you are an automation enthusiast, consider joining the Make expert pool. You will be in good company. 

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who has been with us on the Make journey in one way or another. We are incredibly lucky to have you by our side. 

To automation!
