Does your business need help?
Leverage decades of integration expertise.
The team behind Integration Helpers has over twenty combined years invested in wrangling SaaS APIs to improve business efficiency.
Since 2013 we've helped hundreds of businesses automate work through smarter, connected software systems.
Our Origin Story
In the beginning, we learned our integration skills by building custom workflows for clients of our full-service digital marketing and conference technology agency.
We quickly learned that combining our business strategy and marcomm savvy with deeply technical API integration development create something very valuable, hard-to-find, and deserving of its own business.
In 2016, we abandoned general digital marketing to laser-focus on APIs, technical partnerships, and MERN stack development. Thus began Left Hook, our original brand and company.
Left Hook quickly gained the trust of over forty different B2B SaaS companies willing to outsource Zapier Public App and other universalized integration development to our expert team.
And once we learned their APIs and built scalable "over the counter" integration apps to solve broad use cases, many of these companies asked Left Hook to offer professional services direct to their end customers.
No matter how diverse their universalized connector library, most B2B SaaS companies still need to cater to important customers expecting hourly professional services and consulting to solve their unique business challenges.
Your Outsourced Integration ProServ Team
Integration Helpers is here to service the customers of our trusted SaaS Partners, many of whom are also subscribing customers of Left Hook.
Beginning in January 2019, we reorganized into two sister businesses: Left Hook (serving SaaS companies with universal, scaleable integration apps), and Integration Helpers, our professional services team.
The Comprehensive Expertise You Need
We are a team of SaaS-savvy doers who've seen it all. Collectively we bring decades of technical and business experience to any workflow or integration challenge. Here's our leadership team:
