Nimble, the CRM that is automatically updated with third-party data, has been updated with new tools. Among the updates are an enhanced widget that will support calendar, tasks, deals, and custom views, an all-new activities listing tab and custom activities types, and the ability to send tracked email templates from everywhere teams work: from contact records, the Messages tab, the Today Page dashboard, while mobile, and within the Nimble Smart Contacts App.
From the release: “Historically, Nimble has been known as a simple, smart relationship manager for G Suite users that need to integrate contacts, calendar appointments, inboxes, and social into an easy-to-use team CRM system,” said Nimble CEO Jon Ferrara. “As our customers have adopted Office 365, team sizes have grown and their needs have become more complex. We built Nimble 5.0 to integrate with the business apps and tools they use everyday: Office 365, Teams, Edge, Power BI, Dynamics 365, and applications built using Azure.”

Cloudscene has launched Cloudscene Pathfinder, an app to discover connectivity routes worldwide.

From the release: “Cloud adoption plays a key role in enterprise digital transformation. Yet the process for an enterprise to connect their network or data center resources to a cloud provider is often manual, time-consuming and lacking in market intelligence,” said Belle Lajoie, Chief Executive Officer, Cloudscene. “By combining our deep knowledge of the industry with Cloudscene’s neutral and trusted data-driven platform, we believe we are revolutionizing the way enterprises will transact now and into the future,” added Lajoie.

Ada, the AI-based chatbot that allows enterprises to use bots to communicate across websites and social channels, has added Ada Glass to its features.

From the release: “CX leaders across industries are investing in AI-powered chatbots to improve the customer experience. However, without considering how automation blends with live agent support, the value of the investment is not maximized,” said Mike Murchison, CEO and co-founder of Ada. “The strategic approach we have taken to build Ada Glass with a one-of-a-kind handoff ensures a completely effortless experience for both the agent and the customer.”
