Nimble Adds Business Card Scanner and Email Signature Capture

We have partnered with CircleBack, an AIpowered contact capture and cleaning tool to bring you two new easy ways to capture, update, and clean your contacts: Email Signature Capture for Gmail and our Business Card Scanner for iOS.

Email signature capture enables Gmail and G Suite users to automatically capture information from email signatures in near real-time as you email people who aren’t already in your address book, or update your existing information.  The business card scanner allows you add contacts to Nimble simply by taking a photo of it.

Let’s take a closer look below:

Email Signature Capture for Gmail

With the CircleBack Email Signature Capture integration for Gmail, Nimble captures the Name, Email, Mobile Phone, Work Phone, Job Title, Company, Website URL, Physical Address, Facebook URL, Twitter URL, and LinkedIn URL contained within an email signature.  Even if all of these fields are not in an email signature, Nimble’s social profile match feature will find additional social profiles to help build the most complete contact profiles you’ll find in any CRM on the market.

Enable CircleBack by  installing the Nimble Smart Contacts App browser extension for Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Edge and you’re ready to go. Learn more on our FAQ.

Nimble Smart Contacts App tells you which fields were found in your contact’s email signature to update or enrich your contacts.
