Azure Migration Speeds Time to Market for Nimble 5.0 Release, Which
Delivers Team Relationship Management for Microsoft Office 365 Customers

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nimble
The Simple, Smart CRM for Office 365 — today announced the
migration of its market-leading SaaS CRM from Amazon Web Services (AWS)
to Microsoft Azure. The migration, completed in less than four weeks
without a hitch, enables Nimble to tap into Microsoft’s world-class
Azure platform and partner ecosystem to scale. With Microsoft as a
global Nimble reseller, and promoting it as the simple CRM for Office
365, demand for the easy-to-use CRM for small workgroups is surging.

Nimble – The Simple CRM for Office 365

As our Nimble customer base started to adopt Office 365 for their
cloud productivity platform, we saw the opportunity to deliver a simple
CRM solution for Microsoft customers and partners that places
relationships at the center of their organization,”
said Nimble
CEO Jon Ferrara
. “By providing Microsoft Small Business customers
with a solution that delivers team relationship management for Office
365, we fill the product gap between Office 365 and Dynamics
.”

“Nimble’s use of Azure as a platform and Microsoft Resellers as
implementation partners is an example of how Independent Software
Vendors can speed time to market for third party solutions that fulfill
our customers’ needs and drive adoption of our first party solutions
,”
said Goran Andersson, Microsoft Director of Worldwide One Commercial
Partner Go-to-Market, SMB Sales
. “Customers get more out of
Office 365 with Nimble as their team relationship manager. As they grow
and their needs become more complex, Solution Partners integrate into
additional Microsoft products like Power BI, Azure, and Dynamics
.”

The company that not only helps make Office 365 sticky but becomes a
‘gateway’ to Microsoft’s crown jewels (Azure, Power BI, 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 by
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 companywide team relationship
manager that unifies contacts from 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 ISV using Microsoft’s CSP cloud 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.

“We are championing the drive to help transform resellers from simply
selling Office 365, backup, and security to selling business solutions
on top of Office in order to scale Azure and Dynamics,”
said Stacy
Nethercoat, vice president, Cloud Solutions, Americas, at Tech Data.

“Contributing to these efforts, Nimble’s simple-yet-powerful team
relationship manager, widely adopted by the channel, empowers resellers
to start selling outcome-based solutions bundled with Office 365.
As
customers’ needs evolve, resellers can scale Nimble with Azure and
Common Data Services as well as easily incorporate Dynamics and other
Microsoft platforms.”
