Punctual and Effective

I've work with Automation Ace on several Zapier-based automations for a social medial & ecommerce fitness business. Troy of Automation Ace has delivered every time not only on building viable automations to improve business workflows, but also on SPEED. I have been constantly impressed with the turnaround time for every automation I've had built by Automation Ace. I would wholeheartedly recommend Automation Ace for any Zapier-based need.

Zapier & Automation Genius!

Troy is amazing! My company has and continues to use his services... he is excellent at interpreting and troubleshooting pain points in automation and discrepancies in various program's ability to "talk to each other". Great at timely communication and follow-up and has met every deadline that we've had. Definitely worth partnering with!

We utilized Troy several different times to build out bridges using Zapier & every time he has over delivered. He is super is easy to work & communicate with. Every project we have turned over to him was delivered just as outlined with no surprises & they work. I continue to go back to him for all our projects since he is so easy & competent.

Austin R.

Troy is amazing

Troy jumped right into our project with unbelievable detail and professionalism. Always a risk hiring a someone but we would do it the same way, 100 times over. If Troy says he can help you, make sure you get him before someone else locks him in.

Cristina O.

110% would recommend

Anytime I need any automations done I send them to Troy. He’s super responsive, fast and knows what he’s doing. Highly recommend him!

Troy slays it.

I have worked with him on a good number of projects, he's one of the very few who actually delivers on time and budget. Super reliable, highly communicative.

Sarah E.

Zapier and ClickUp Integration Expert

Troy is incredible and he was available on short notice to help me with some troubleshooting. He's an excellent communicator and was able to work fast and identify issues to help get me back on track. I would HIGHLY recommend him and I plan to work with him again in the future! Thank you for helping me Troy :)

Christina R.

Solved my problem in a day!

Troy was awesome to work with and talked me through the best way to set up my Zap. I was looking for a way to automatically rename uploaded photos to a Jotform and save into Google Drive which he immediately knew how to set up. Great communication back and forth throughout the process, and he talked me through the process so I can implement more on my own in the future. SO HELPFUL!

Troy Solved A Problem Quickly That Zapier Support Said Wasn't Possible

When trying to connect Zoho CRM to ActiveCampaign through Zapier using custom fields, we were stuck. Talking with Zapier support, we were told that we needed custom development done and that unfortunately Zapier wouldn't be able to be the connection for what we needed. Enter Troy. Before going "the hard route," Troy used his expertise and experience to quickly determine that we in fact COULD use Zapier so that the connection would be easy for us to manage rather than going through custom API work. Between his insights and helpful consulting, quick response time, and expert execution, Troy was a great resource and I'm grateful that we found him. (Worth mentioning that he diagnosed, prescribed, and resolved the issue before 4/6 of the candidates even responded to my first question)

Shane S.

I wish I could put 6 stars

Troy (aka Automation Ace) was faster and more productive than I expected. They set me up for success after the project was over, and I couldn't be more grateful for that.

Wayne A.

Email Parse

Automation Ace is a critical part of our business. They help us with simple and complicated email parses. They are very responsive and a true thought partner. I highly recommend Automation Ace.

Kurtis S.

Simply The Best Automation Expert We've Ever Worked With

Our company hit the jackpot when we found Automation Ace. In 2019 we had our first fiscal loss since 2011 mainly because traditional marketing had become very ineffective. We had to rely on a tremendous amount of data processing to get more targeted with our marketing dollars. There are just too many things to process (not just too many man-hours, but too many points of human error) to hire for all the processes that needed to be implemented. Troy applied his expertise to build a MACHINE for us across many different platforms. Once we implemented the automations, we almost immediately became profitable again. I look forward to many more projects with Automation Ace if you need any kind of automation you can stop looking- these guys are it- best in their field and priced well below their value.

Troy has been hands down the best Upwork contractor I've worked with. He documents well, probably because it will make life easier for him later because he knows you won't bring someone else in after working with him. He's fair with time and does not inflate numbers while working efficiently.

Brian N.

Extremely fast, great quality

Troy is a stud -- the most complex challenges can be resolved by him in minutes. I'm a huge fan and turn to him whenever I can.

Kalani T.

Did a great job as my Zapier & Airtable consultant

I work in a unique industry, and Troy at Automation Ace created solutions via Zapier and Airtable to help coordinate our data and add in integrations that have significantly increased our workflow efficiency. Troy is highly responsive and effective. I look forward to hiring him again soon.

Tim G.

Technical knowledge + great project manager

Troy at Automation Ace has solved every problem I've thrown at him. Not only does he have the knowledge of Zapier and a variety of other tools that we rely on, he's also an efficient project manager and communicator. I never have to guess what he's working on or what the next steps are. Highly recommend!

Dimitris H.

Highly recommend

We've been working with Troy for over a month now delivering high-value, high-impact improvements in our marketing automation stack.  Troy leads the task from co-specification, to execution, to  review, testing and delivery, and follows on with improvements and maintenance as required.  If you're short on time or staff and require skilled, highly independent third party expert help, this is your guy.

Ben L.

Reliable, knowledgable and fast!

Troy is a genius with all things automation. I have worked with him several times configuring an Airtable and Zapier flow and he is consistent, reliable and responds in a timely matter. I would highly recommend working with Troy for all of your automation needs!

Scott R.

Troy is a Human Zap. 100% recommend.

Troy knows Zaps. Our use case involved scheduling apps, accounting for limited group resources, and variable client presenters. Troy made a complex workflow simple for our team who needed information on the fly.  I highly recommend Troy and will not hesitate to hire him again.

Ace Automation has been helping me with various automation in our marketing campaigns and no matter how difficult or complex the task is, they completed it promptly and cost effectively with no fuzz. Highly recommended.

Camille A.

What Troy doesn't know about Zapier isn't worth knowing

To create an automated workflow for my business Unbridely, Troy helped me with Google sheets & forms integration, advanced Zap paths and several rounds of troubleshooting as the project grew. Troy anticipated roadblocks and suggested potential solutions that I didn't even know I'd need and was super responsive.

Dustin D.

Amazing Zapier Partner

Troy has been indispensable in helping us collaborate with our clients systems and processes utilizing Zapier. I Highly recommend!

Arif S.

Automation is a game changer!

I hired Troy to set up Zapier in order to automate a lot of repetitive tasks. He not only got it done quickly but made suggestions to make it even more effective. If you're ready to work on your business instead of in it then get with Troy.
