How Nimble + Azure Revolutionize Relationship Management for Office 365 Teams

Nimble has migrated its market-leading SaaS CRM from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Microsoft Azure.

The migration enables Nimble to tap into Microsoft’s world-class Azure platform and partner ecosystem to scale. With Microsoft as a global reseller, and promoting it as the simple CRM for Office 365, Nimble is able to help even larger teams build better relationships.

Why Nimble is the Simple CRM for Office 365

As they grow and their needs become more complex, Solution Partners integrate into additional Microsoft products like PowerBI, Azure, and Dynamics.”

The company that not only helps make Office 365 sticky but becomes a “gateway” to Microsoft’s crown jewels UAzure, PowerBi, and Dynamics) will become a GoldMine,” added Ferrara. “We scaled my previous startup, GoldMine CRM, to $100M in revenue by driving adoption of NT Server, SQL Server, and Exchange Server as Microsoft’s #1 ISV Independent Software Vendor. We are repeating history with Nimble CRM driving Office 365, Azure, PowerBI, and Dynamics adoption.”

Nimble is accelerating the delivery of its upcoming 5.0 release using the Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) and by integrating Common Data Services, Power BI, PowerApps, and Flow.  Targeted for release in June, Nimble 5.0 delivers small businesses a company-wide team relationship manager that unifies contacts from their walled-off siloed departments in sales, marketing, customer service, and accounting for Office 365 or G Suite users.  

Microsoft Partners are the Trusted Advisors to Billions of Customers

Nimble is the only independent software vendor using Microsoft’s CSP marketplace to build its distribution channel globally.

To date, nearly 500 CSPs are using Nimble internally to transform their business and, in turn, transform their customers. Partners reselling third-party solutions like Nimble with Office 365 can take advantage of solution bundles entirely integrated within Microsoft’s provisioning and transaction system.
