SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Nimble, a pioneering social relationship management platform, announced a new set of business productivity apps including Zapier, FreshDesk and Import2, has been added to the growing Nimble Apps Marketplace. Nimble is internationally acclaimed for empowering business teams to collectively engage with customers and turn social conversations into business opportunities with its simple web-based solution.
The Nimble Apps Marketplace now hosts an expanding collection of third-party tools, empowering Nimble users with lead capture and analytics, email marketing support, and more. These new Nimble add-ons, available immediately to the Nimble community, give businesses even more ways to close the social marketing and sales loop.
"Our newest wave of apps helps our growing population of social business users and empowers them to practice social selling," said Jon Ferrara, CEO, Nimble. "Tying company-wide social conversations to customers is crucial to business success, and by integrating these third-party applications into our Apps Marketplace, we open up new ways of empowering teams through collaborating and conversing around the customer with Nimble."
Newest Additions to the Nimble Apps Marketplace
Use Zapier to integrate Nimble into your favorite business applications. Connecting web-based apps is often a challenge. In the past, users transcribed data themselves or hired a programmer to sync apps between complicated APIs. Zapier helps business people, who know their time is better spent connecting with customers, by syncing the web services they are already using on a daily basis to increase productivity and results. Think of Zapier as an If This, Then That (IFTTT) for business users.
With Zapier connected to Nimble you can automatically:
- Send new Salesforce.com leads into Nimble for more effective social selling
- Send new QuickBooks customers and vendors into Nimble to nurture and manage relationships
- Send new GoToWebinar attendees into Nimble for more effective customer engagement
Just drag and drop the icons for Nimble and your favorite web app into place, select the information to transfer and Zapier does the rest. Learn more at: https://zapier.com/. Twitter: @Zapier
The Nimble-Freshdesk integration enables agents to see full customer records from within a Freshdesk help ticket. Freshdesk is a cloud-based help desk software system that allows organizations to support their customers through email, phone, website, Facebook and Twitter. Its simple yet powerful features make Freshdesk a great solution for startups to enterprises. Freshdesk and Nimble work together to create a "social help desk" to keep business owners and small teams organized with the most recent, accurate information available about their customers.
