Backed by expert assessment, training, community forums and support professionals, Velosio will resell Nimble CRM as one of the earliest participants in Microsoft’s Partner Center Third Party Software Offers pilot, a partner-to-partner marketplace designed to solve specific customer needs.
Beginning in June, Velosio’s 200 channel partners can purchase, manage, and resell Nimble CRM bundled with Microsoft Office 365 to small business teams adopting their first CRM. It can be provisioned from within the online Cloud Marketplace, where the entire Microsoft Dynamics portfolio, Office 365 family, and Azure services are supported.
“While Dynamics 365 is ideally suited for Microsoft customers looking for an enterprise-class business management solution, it’s by no means a self-starter CRM kit,” explained Tyler Bowman, Director of Cloud Sales and Operations for Velosio. “In cases where small business teams manage contact relationships via email and retain customer information on spreadsheets, we recommend Nimble CRM as a step in the right direction. Nimble’s 80 percent end user adoption rate attests to the tremendous value this customer segment realizes when fixing deep-rooted contact management issues.”
Nimble integrates with Microsoft Dynamics 365 to address customer growth as their needs become more complex in order to maximize customers’ investments in cloud services.
“Starting with a simple CRM facilitates an eventual upgrade to Dynamics CRM as their enterprise CRM,” Bowman added.
Nimble enables Office 365 customers to manage relationships more effectively within a single, socially enriched system of record. The contact relationship manager builds a team database from insights available in and around the business. Nimble enriches email, appointments, social media, and SaaS-based connections with social insights and business context. It also delivers contact and business profiles within Office 365, across the Web, in popular SaaS applications, and on mobile devices.
“We are excited to partner with Velosio and its channel partners to deliver immediate value as a modern CRM for small business teams,” said Kevin Turner, Head of Strategic Partner Development at Nimble. “Once Office 365 users have a grasp of Nimble’s ‘what’s in it for me’ factor, they’re far more likely to embrace the modern workplace.”
