Why does Nimble put such an emphasis on this single view? We believe that contact management is not really about contacts... It's about relationships. Nimble’s contact management style is to bring them to life—from a 2D name in a data field to a richly-detailed 3D person.
When information about contacts is scattered all over the place, collecting and managing it is time-consuming and bothersome. Who wants to be constantly bouncing back and forth on sites and browsers to find information? This kind of “'Contact fragmentation” is completely unproductive.
What you want is to know your contacts. Knowing them better and communicating with them in a genuine way builds trust. To that end, it helps to know how you’ve interacted over time, know when you last talked to them, when you’re next meeting them. It helps to be able to see what they’re talking about on their social networks, too, so you can pick the right times to step in and offer relevant, meaningful information or advice.
The heart of Nimble’s Contact Management Software is the Contact Record, where every contact is seen in rich detail. The Contact Record is where the magic happens.
What’s special about the Nimble Contact Record? With Nimble, contact management goes way beyond the basics of a typical “address book” entry..
Sure, Nimble software easily imports all of the basic contact information from Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, Skype, Google+, phone, email, and more. But then Nimble goes above and beyond. The Nimble Contact Management solution goes to another level, augmenting each Contact Record with richly detailed information across social channels. You gain insights about the people in your network—to drive deeper social media relationships and more profitable campaigns.If you and your team aren't using Nimble then you're simply not as, well, nimble.
You’ll never miss an email, a comment, an invitation to connect, or a timely Tweet—Nimble includes social communications, too. When anyone in your community is talking to or about you, their messages are captured in an airtight monitoring system, a unified inbox designed so you see every communication.
Our product roadmap is focused on presenting you with relevant information you can use to make your business relationships a driving force in your success.
Nimble’s insights cut through the clutter, providing the most relevant contact insight when and where you can make the most of it. We tell you who you should be in touch with, why they’re important, and when to reach out. We want you to have intelligence that directs you confidently —not just to ANY door, but the RIGHT door. We present you with the opportunities in your network that are most important—the topics and areas of interest that mesh with yours. In short, we surface the best signals from all the distracting noise—and we make dealing with them a seamless part of your day.
At the heart of Nimble’s commitment to insights is our teachable Rules Engine. You tell us what matters to you, and the Nimble Rules Engine kicks into high gear. Our algorithm is designed to learn from your behavior, so what you see gets more and more useful over time. Your actions and input inform the Rules Engine and guide the intelligence that Nimble surfaces for you. Then we monitor and adjust. Each time this “virtuous cycle” happens, the Rules Engine learns more about your needs. This is the power of Nimble—an ongoing concentration on valuable insights, a higher-quality network, and more targeted engagement opportunities.The Rules Engine spearheads an entirely new Nimble experience—telling you things about your network that you didn’t know—without having to speak two programming languages! We’re taking your network of contacts and giving you back more than you gave us. And we’ll do this automatically—every time you open Nimble.
With the Rules Engine hard at work, Nimble shows you who to engage with, why connecting is important, and where to reach out to connect. Did someone take an action that involved you? Do you have a task or meeting coming up? Have you been out of touch? Are there opportunities out there that you might have missed? If someone started following you on Twitter, are they potentially important to you?No guesswork! Nimble actually knows what’s important to you—because it’s a smart relationship tool that adjusts itself based on your own behavior and your assessment of the results Nimble surfaces.
The Today Page is the place where you can immediately act on the intelligence Nimble surfaces to you each day.
Here you see your ToDo List, Engagement Opportunities (personalized to your network), Deals in your pipeline, and Milestones (birthdays and job changes) among your contacts. Your Nimble automatically looks at spheres of influence and surfaces the right signals. No wasted time sorting through raw data—your networks report to you.Every time you sign in, we present you with three of your Contacts who have a job title or match a keyword that you’ve told us is important to you. You can then tell Nimble whether the contact is important, set a date reminder to engage, or indicate that the contact is not important at this time. Want to tell Nimble about more contacts—no problem, we’ll show you all the contacts you want to label.
The search function in Nimble is now capable of finding relevant, exact matches on any group (similar to Google) or any Tag, as well as an automatic sort of the last time you or a team member has engaged with someone in your network.
