Is it possible to build something like Grouparoo instead of buying the product?

As is often the case, the devil is in the details. You have to make sure you get the right data and handle many API nuances. It’s challenging to test and maintain and there are many points of failure with no observability.

Like many other problem spaces, an open-source tool might be the right solution. It allows you to have granular control while focusing on your core product, leaving the hassle of maintaining ever-changing integrations to the experts. Using an out-of-the-box solution like Grouparoo with great architecture for testing and iterating, you’re able to integrate confidently and also experience a host of other benefits.
