Nimble Contact Launches
November 13, 2017
Contact is an easy-to-use contact relationship manager for
individuals and teams. It simplifies relationship management by
unifying company contacts from Microsoft Office 365, G Suite,
Gmail and iCloud; social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter
and LinkedIn; and more than 80 SaaS-based sales, CRM, marketing,
customer service and accounting applications into a single
system of record.
Nimble CEO Jon Ferrara, previously founder of GoldMine, the
company that pioneered Contact Management and CRM, believes that
both Contact Management and CRM are broken. He created Nimble
Contact because it’s difficult to cultivate relationships amidst
the chaos of people’s de facto contact platforms, business apps
and social platforms. Critical contacts and engagement history
are strewn across stacks of scribbled-on business cards, hastily
added email contacts, multiple email accounts, social media
streams and unviewed calendar reminders.
Companies face an even bigger challenge when departments lock
their contacts into specialized sales, marketing, customer
service and accounting business application silos.
“Effective team Contact Management is at the heart of every
business, but it’s missing from Office 365, G Suite, typical
CRMs and social media, where people communicate most,” said Jon
Ferrara, CEO of Nimble. “Relationship management is siloed
amongst the many business apps that companies use to manage
sales, marketing, customer service and accounting. Nimble
Contact solves this by delivering a single, secure team contact
manager that builds itself from the existing contact data in and
around the company.”
Nimble Contact: The Simply Smarter Contact Manager
Nimble Contact enables teams to cultivate relationships and work
better together by automatically generating enriched contact and
company records, enabling users to discover missing email, phone
number and address data, and delivering social insights and
business context everywhere you work, so there’s no need to
toggle between applications.
Direct access to Nimble’s social business insights within sales
enablement, marketing automation, accounting and customer
service applications helps:
• Salespeople turn marketing
qualified leads (MQLs) into sales qualified leads (SQLs) faster
and cultivate genuine relationships that help drive
opportunities and sales tracked inside Salesforce, Microsoft
Dynamics 365 and Oracle Sales Cloud, among others.
• Marketers get enriched MQL
profiles such as highly engaged website traffic or email
respondents scored in leading marketing automation systems such
as Hubspot, Infusionsoft, Constant Contact, MailChimp,
ActiveCampaign, OntraPort and Marketo.
• Accounting teams save time
and errors by sharing business context within popular accounting
software such as Quickbooks, Freshbooks, Sage Live and Xero.
• Customer Support teams
project a positive brand image and signal they care about
clients tracked in Zendesk, FreshDesk and Help Scout by engaging
customers based on common areas of interest.
Powered by PieSync’s two-way intelligent data synchronization
platform, Nimble Contact enables users to nurture relationships
more effectively and work better together in teams. The complete
list of supported business apps is available here.
“Nimble is now my go-to app for managing relationships with more
than 14,000 CRM software developers,” said Rich Bohn,
independent CRM analyst and president, Sell More Now, LLC. “My
initial contact is typically via a social media post or stream.
With just a click or two, Nimble lets me easily create a
complete contact record, including email address. Now, the
PieSync integration lets me automatically merge these folks into
my drip-marketing solution. Before I moved to Nimble, it would
take me hours to just try to get this stuff done!”
