Actiondesk makes it really easy to extract data from various systems, build logic and calculations and push the transformed data to another application (CRM for example). And then, this whole process will run automatically at the frequency you'd like. We don't have to constantly run the process of manually extracting data to CSV and crunch it in Excel.
