Use Zapier to integrate Nimble into your favorite business applications. Connecting web-based apps is often a challenge. In the past, users transcribed data themselves or hired a programmer to sync apps between complicated APIs. Zapier helps business people, who know their time is better spent connecting with customers, by syncing the web services they are already using on a daily basis to increase productivity and results. Think of Zapier as an If This, Then That (IFTTT) for business users.

With Zapier connected to Nimble you can automatically:

  • Send new Salesforce.com leads into Nimble for more effective social selling
  • Send new QuickBooks customers and vendors into Nimble to nurture and manage relationships
  • Send new GoToWebinar attendees into Nimble for more effective customer engagement

Just drag and drop the icons for Nimble and your favorite web app into place, select the information to transfer and Zapier does the rest. Learn more at: https://zapier.com/. Twitter: @Zapier
