Nimble has a lot to tell you about today. Over the past few months, we’ve added significant new features, a focus on insights, and coined a new motto: Nimble Everywhere!
That’s right — we’re building Nimble to fit into leading applications that business people live in as they address their daily workflow. We are happy to announce that the Nimble Contacts Widgets is now part of your Gmail, Outlook, and Hootsuite experience. Nimble is aiming to be everywhere you are working. (By the way, if you use more than one of these, the Nimble Contacts Widget can be in ALL places for you). Have a look at our What’s New in Nimble video.
Here’s how to get the awesome new apps:
Nimble Everywhere means we don’t dictate your workflow — we support it. With Nimble always close by and ready, you can take advantage of your Nimble features from these popular worktools. We help you stay on top of what’s important and take action quickly in your workstream. You don’t miss important opportunities to be efficient and productive.
A New Way to Work — More Nimbly
You’ve been using old cobbled-together working methods for too long. Spreadsheets, Rolodexes, Post-Its, and other hacks get you by. But do you wanna just get by? There’s a better way… a more Nimble way of letting our software guide your workflow. With the new, improved Nimble, you can be more confident, organized, and productive — seamlessly.
Here are the features we’ve added recently. Together, they define The Nimble Way — A method for building good habits into your workflow with automatic Nimble features and insights:
The New, Insight-Packed Contact View
We find the people who matter to you, and then we act as your trusted source and repository of accurate information about them. Nimble tells you things you don’t know about existing contacts and helps you deepen and nurture them naturally. We identify the people who matter in your network, then layer on insights to help you. Nimble understands the value of your contacts and the relationships they represent.

How do we do it? We’ve redesigned and refreshed the Contact Record and given you improved navigability and ways to take quick actions. Every contact’s sidebar is packed with insights like:
Recommended as Important
We tell you why the contact is Important to you – why we’re recommending you get to know them better.
We tell you what networks you are connected on.
Contact’s Social Stream
Your contact’s social footprint – What are they saying now?
Shared Connections in Common
More information you need to build a strong relationship.
So you can see at a glance what reminders, level of importance, last contacted date, and deals pertain to your contact.
Stay in Touch
The Stay in Touch Reminder System is an automated way to watch your communications. Reminders prompt you to connect at the right time. If you don’t reach out on schedule, Nimble tells you you’re overdue.
Mark as Important
A star system means you won’t miss timely communications from important people.
Last Contacted and Recently Contacted
Sorting formats that keep your most current relationships and workflows top of mind. What matters most is fresh and central. You can click on the sidebar filter to get the big picture.
Take Action Instantly
Open any Contact Record and just start typing! Automatically archive important details on a contact, log a note, assign follow-up tasks, or add people to deals you’re working on.
Quick views that live on your sidebar and show you the composition of your network
We make it easy and fast to find contacts and companies!
A more convenient and powerful dropdown for fast results.
We’re Your Relationship Wingman
Nimble knows that the information you don’t have can hurt you. That’s why we explore, discover, and surface the new people who could matter to your business. We layer actionable insights right onto your valuable contact base to help you build relationships into business opportunities. With our Teachable Rules Engine (based on algorithms developed by our stellar engineering team) we are able to find who’s important to you, who’s relevant in real time, and suggest ways to connect — and keep connected. We don’t let you overlook relevant moments to interact.
Here’s what we do to insure that:
The Nimble Teachable Rules Engine
You tell us what is important to you, and we learn (profiling with keywords, titles, and more) to surface people who align with your interests.
Nimble Signals Tab (beta)
Sort and segment by birthdays, job changes, new connections, tweets and retweets, mentions, comments, and likes.
Nimble on the Move!
We work with 100s of the most popular worktools.
As you can see, Nimble is executing on its promise to help companies confidently build — and productively manage! — the relationships that matter most to their business. We are focused on giving you an unfair, disruptive advantage in managing your business relationships.
More Exciting News
We’re presenting a refreshed website and design, improved navigability, and more intuitive menu bars.
We believe that Nimble is the most useful and affordable social business worktool around. Nimble is making features that make it easy and enjoyable to build great work habits right into your workflow. We’re adding context to each contact, so you can build lasting relationships that will lead to business opportunities.
We couldn’t build Nimble into the worktool of our team’s vision without our supportive user community. Your wishes, feedback, and passion have led to many of the features and improvements we announce today. We know that this direction is the right one to help social businesses succeed today. Onward and upward!
