Cirrus Insight -> Salesforce -> Gmail: Nice Integration

, ,

There are a range of terrific CRM solutions out there and we have tried several for both client installations and our own team’s use. We settled on based on the richness of functionality, the level of demand we see with our own clients and some excellent integration opportunities.

In addition to integrating fully with our marketing automation solution to pass through inbound marketing leads and see lead scoring, we have implemented Cirrus Insight as a browser widget for contextual integration with Gmail.

That problem has now been solved!!
