Nimble, a provider of social relationship mamagement software, today released Version 2.0 of the Nimble Contacts Widget for Gmail. The company also debuted the ability to add Nimble's Smart Contact profiles anywhere within Chrome Web browsers.
The new Nimble Contacts Widget defaults to the Smart Summary view of any individual, which shows bio, company information, connections in common, and educational background in a summary. The Nimble Contacts Widget lets users 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.
To add a contact profile in Nimble iusers highlight a name in a Web browser, right-click "Nimble Contact," and let Nimble build that contact profile automatically. The process works similarly in the Nimble Contacts Widget by using the "Import Contact" function.
"Let's face it, most people's CRM is their inbox, and they are overwhelmed with contacts and communications. Nimble brings intelligence and collaborative workflow to the inbox, and our users are turning Nimble into a verb as they use our Smart Contacts widget to prepare for more authentic, relevant, and effective engagement," said Nimble CEO Jon Ferrara in a statement. "When it comes to understanding who somebody is, the first-and-best-thing to do is to 'Nimble them,' and then watch as Nimble's smart profiling technology provides a rich, complete summary of insights."
Previously, Nimble integrated its Contact Widget with Microsoft Outlook and Office 365, and Hootsuite.
