First launched in March 2020, Claris Connect is a development platform that allows small- and medium-sized businesses to create apps and leverage existing ones for automation.

The new third-party integrations introduced on Thursday include compatibility with Google Workspace, HubSpot, MonkeyLearn, UPS, Shopify, and Smartsheet.

Additionally, Claris Connect users can now add and manage secondary approvers for workflows; quickly convert text strings to JSON with a new conversion tool; and iterate through a list of names with a Repeat flow control step.

According to the compmany, the new features are part of a doubled-down focus on remote work during the coronavirus global health crisis.

"Throughout this pandemic, Claris Connect has helped companies not only rapidly adjust to operating under a remote workforce, but also foster the adoption and scale of a digital infrastructure," said Peter Nelson, Claris' VP of Engineering.

Apple first rebranded its FileMaker subsidiary to Claris in August 2019. The Connect platform allows users to build complicated workflows with a point-and-click interface and little to no development skills.

"With Claris Connect, businesses, professional developers, and citizen developers can easily integrate and automate critical applications in the cloud, on-premise, and on-device," Nelson said.

The company says it will continue to introduce new app integrations and other features as time goes on. Pricing for Claris Connect starts at $19.99 a month and caps out at $249 per month for larger businesses and budgets. New customers can also nab a 15-day free trial of the service.
