Census + Airtable: Build workflows and apps on top of your data warehouse

Sep 28, 2021
Sean is co-founder and Chief Product Officer (CPO) at Census. His loves enabling data-driven organizations, so he's energized by introducing the world to Data Operations.

Airtable has empowered more people than ever to interact with data inside the business, giving them “the familiarity of a spreadsheet and the power of a database”. At Census, we’re dedicated to making data more accessible to business teams, while empowering data teams to maintain a high-quality, trusted source of truth for that data.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our integration with Airtable, which enables business teams to easily build powerful workflows and automation leveraging data directly from the data warehouse.

No more copying and pasting! Data teams help business folks interact with data in the warehouse without SQL but can rest easy knowing every team is working off a single source of truth.

Knowde, a modern B2B marketplace for the chemicals industry, uses Census and Airtable to power their data automation.

"Our data team uses Census as a data automation workflow tool to support our Growth, Finance, and Ops teams," Brandyn Abrams, head of data and analytics engineering at Knowde, says. "We sync our data to several destinations including Active Campaign, Airtable, and Salesforce. Census helps us fully automate processes that otherwise would require many manual hours of work each week, and helps us ensure that data in these destinations are always up to date and accurate."

With Census and Airtable, business teams can be truly self-serve with data in your warehouse, and power operational workflows such as:

  • Managing and fulfilling new order workflows
  • Prioritizing leads in your Airtable CRM with other data like product usage
  • Enriching product research with customer data from your CRM

Census automatically pulls fresh data from your data warehouse into your Airtable bases, as well as updates existing records, so your teams never have to worry about data being stale or inaccurate.
