Nimble Launches Social Selling App for HootSuite, Chrome, Safari and Firefox With Relationship Intelligence

New Smart Contacts Widget Let's You Simply Manage Business Relationships Everywhere You Work

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Nimble, the world's leading social relationship manager, today announced new additions to its Nimble Smart Contacts Everywhere strategy -- The Smart Contacts Widgets for HootSuite, Chrome, Safari and Firefox lets you add, view and engage contacts to nurture relationships in every App in your browser.

"Nimble Insights" On Any Contact, Instantly From Any App in Your Browser
The ability to create and manage smart contact profiles anywhere you work is as easy as highlighting a name in a Web browser and letting Nimble build Smart Contact profiles automatically. Simply "Nimble Contacts" to see rich contact insights and team communication history on anyone, anywhere, then engage and build relationships as you're working in web apps and browsing.

Instant Relationship Intelligence, Everywhere You Work
"Let's face it, most people engage business prospects in multiple tabs in their browser including their email inbox, Google search, social platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter and customer facing business apps like CRM, and they are overwhelmed with contacts and communications. Nimble brings relationship intelligence to their contact workflow and our customers are turning Nimble into a verb as they use our Smart Contacts widget to prepare for more authentic, relevant engagement," said Nimble CEO Jon Ferrara. "When it comes to understanding who somebody is, the best-thing to do is to 'Nimble them,' and then let Nimble's smart profiling technology provide rich, contact insights and communications summary."

"This integration is a significant development for social businesses," says Mark Holder, director of platform at HootSuite. "Consumers today are making many of their buying decisions online and it is critical for companies to actively connect with the new social buyer over social media, adding value to the conversation. The new Nimble Smart Contacts integration with HootSuite simplifies the process of engaging and capturing social conversations with consumers and prospects, ultimately impacting the business' bottom line."

More Customers, Less Work
Today, sales people spend almost 20 percent of their time researching accounts and prospects by Googling them, logging email and social interactions with much of this time wasted. Nimble immediately trims the amount of time spent profiling contacts and logging interactions with its Smart Summary view and automatic email and social syncing, now inside the Nimble Contacts Widget.

The Nimble Contacts Widget provides for the ability to view social streams and signals related to that contact. Nimble pulls and provides complete communications history of emails, notes, and events, in addition to social messages. The Nimble Contacts Widget also enables users to take action by adding a task, associating a new deal, rating the contact as important or starting engagement follow-ups directly within the app.

Feedback from our Nimble Community
"The Nimble Smart Contacts App saves me time engaging inside and outside of social media. I use to switch between my email, social and a traditional CRM to try to piece together who someone is, how we're connected and what our history is," said Neal Schaffer, Social Media Author and Ranked in Forbes as a Top 5 Social Sales Influencer. "Now, Nimble is my smart relationship second brain accessible to me everywhere I engage. I introduce Nimble in my social media presentations because it provides focused Big Data business intelligence on people to get help build key relationships in this complex online world of ours."

Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing.

Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
