A Jira Connector is a type of integration that allows you to link a third-party system to Jira. This means that all activities and data held in your other system (such as collaboration tools, calendars, customer databases, and so on) can be displayed and shared in Jira. Jira Connectors can be used to create a consistent view of communication activities across multiple systems, automate workflows, reduce manual data entry, and speed up response times.
There are a number of different Jira Connectors available, which are customized to fit to the needs of each individual organization. Below are some of the key benefits that a Jira Connector can offer:
Automate Workflows: Automate common or repetitive tasks and workflows in your other systems and have those activities updated in Jira. You can also set up notifications so you are always aware when activities are updated.
Access to More Data: By linking to your other systems, you can access and use other data such as customer information in Jira. This makes it easier to measure and monitor customer service performance and product usage.
Efficiency & Cost-savings: Having all of your different tools integrated in Jira can save a lot of time and effort when managing projects and tasks. This reduced amount of manual data entry or processes can also save costs for your organization.
Improved Collaboration: A Jira Connector can improve collaboration between teams as all stakeholders have access to the same information. This ensures that everyone is on the same page and aware of any changes.
