๐Ÿ’ผ Using Airtable, Zapier & Twilio to run a local service business

Link to Demo

I created a database and a couple automated workflows for a friendโ€™s bus rental company using no-code online apps. This workflow uses a customer form to enter new trip requests into the Airtable database. A draft email response is automatically created in Gmail. The Airtable database can also be used to schedule drivers and buses to specific trips and an SMS is sent to the driver with the trip details using Twilio. Check out the videos below for demonstrations:

Airtable Database
