Configure the airSlate Bot to export data from MySQL

Digital practices have revolutionized the world. Businesses everywhere are seeking ways to streamline processes to achieve better quality. Among the tools that help them do that are ERP and CRM systems. They’re very similar and take similar approaches, but cover different sectors. To enhance performance, businesses sometimes use both and integrate them with other platforms. This article will shed light on how to configure a software robot — a Bot, to seamlessly transfer data from a MySQL populate table to airSlate forms.

What is MySQL and why do businesses use it?

MySQL is one of the world’s most popular databases. It offers top-notch security, simplicity in use, and cost-effectiveness. Businesses are fully leveraging its support to secure transactions and enhance cooperation with customers and clients by integrating it with other platforms to export data from MySQL.

In addition, there are other reasons to give priority to MySQL over other databases:
  1. Round-the-clock availability. The database allows uninterrupted access to the system to process multiple queries.
  2. Award-winning reliability. MySQL is good at protecting sensitive data and ensuring safe connections with other systems.
  3. High processing speed. The platform is very quick and rich in self-management tools that make processes exceptionally fast.
  4. Perfect for any business. It creates additional opportunities for small, medium, and large businesses and helps them keep data safe.
  5. Safe financial transactions. The database divides transactions into stages. If a failure occurs during one of the stages, the transaction is canceled.

This is why industries, including e-commerce, education, retail, healthcare, and many others are using MySQL to maintain seamless service and increase revenue. The platform integrates well with ERP and CRM systems and enables users to export data from MySQL fast and easy.

What are the benefits of automating data export?

A lot of businesses dream of a holistic and comprehensive automation platform for covering every requirement, including data storage. However, what if your company has already bought a subscription for data storage and you don’t need that feature and don’t feel like overpaying for it? In fact, you don’t have to. For businesses, it’s much more cost-effective and convenient to employ various stand-alone platforms instead.

Whichever database you use, simply integrate it with an automation tool like airSlate and set up seamless data transfer. For example, configure Bots to work with data export from MySQL.

Introducing powerful automation leads to:
  1. Saved time. Automation eliminates manual copying and pasting that can take up to several weeks depending on the number of documents that need to be pre/post-filled.
  2. Saved expenses. Companies can save money normally spent on salaries by using Bots to pre/post-fill documents.
  3. Higher quality and fewer errors. Streamlined processes that remove human interaction also remove humane-prone mistakes.
  4. Enhanced security. Automation makes business processes more consistent and compliant. Any inconsistencies are easily detectable and can be improved.
  5. Improved productivity. While monotonous processes are being automated, employees can focus on creative tasks for growing and sustaining the business.
