One of the most requested enhancements we hear from our users and partners is to enable API integrations to extend Nimble to meet their specific business needs. That’s now possible with the Contact API, which allows you to connect Nimble to any sales, marketing or other business tool.
The Contact API has been in private beta for several weeks, and we’re now opening beta access to the public. You can sign up for API access at our developer portal and read through the documentation to get started.
For us, the API represents a major milestone in achieving our mission of helping small teams nurture stronger relationships to drive more business opportunities. Our API puts Nimble at the center of any customer engagement workflow by tying together complementary tools in the areas of sales, marketing, customer service, and accounting.
The Contact API is the first in a family of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that will empower developers to create innovative customer engagement applications. We envision making Nimble the single source of customer engagement intelligence to power all of your engagement activities and decisions. We’re excited to see how you will create fully integrated workflows with other best-of-breed tools that complement Nimble.
The Nimble Marketplace
During the private beta, a few intrepid folks have already begun creating integrations:
Hootsuite is a wildly popular social media dashboard for publishing, monitoring, and measuring multiple social identities. A Nimble plugin for Hootsuite is coming soon and will enable you to see Nimble contact info from within Hootsuite, and import new contacts back into Nimble.
Zapier makes it easy to sync data between 120 different web applications. In the words of Wade Foster, CEO of Zapier, “The availability of the Nimble API satisfies a pressing need of all our clients who have been eager to connect the dots between their various SaaS Business Apps.”
OneSaas also connects cloud apps, allowing you to automate your workflows and connect your business apps together.
Getting data migrated from another CRM system into Nimble is made easier by forthcoming tools from Import2 and StarfishETL.
Quoteroller allows you to create, track, manage sales proposals effortlessly. By integrating with Nimble, Quoteroller enables you to synchronize contacts between both systems, providing you with access to important information quickly and easily.
Check back at our new Marketplace page to see which integrations are available and coming soon.
