Nimble, the pioneer in social relationship management software, has been rated one of the top CRM platforms on G2 Crowd, which uses crowd-based research to reflect current industry trends. Nimble earned a 94 percent satisfaction score, one of the highest among all CRM platforms and also achieved the most significant shift in scale and satisfaction in the category.
The 94 percent satisfaction rating represents a 23 percent increase since G2 Crowd's last report. Additionally, Nimble saw an increase of 36 percent in scale, a measurement of the company’s overall market share, which includes growth in number of employees, market share based on share of voice, momentum based on web traffic, and social impact based on Klout score, Twitter and LinkedIn followers, among other factors.
“These rankings are a strong third-party validation of the high-quality value Nimble provides for its users,” said Jon Ferrara, CEO of Nimble. “G2 Crowd uses customer reviews as the basis for all of its rankings, so we were especially excited to see that our own users' feedback has helped Nimble achieve remarkable momentum in scale and satisfaction scores. Our continued emphasis on listening and responding to customers is what differentiates Nimble from our competitors – and it shows in this report.”
G2 Crowd rates products and vendors based on ratings and reviews gathered from its user community, as well as data aggregated from online sources and social networks. G2 Crowd's ranking system weighs overall customer satisfaction and NPS score, customer satisfaction, popularity and statistical significance.
“For anyone who struggles to manage contacts in their business, Nimble is a really powerful tool that is surprisingly simple and easy to use,” said Charlene Kingston, a Nimble user who rated the platform in G2 Crowd's CRM report. “After just two days of using the platform during my free trial, I knew I was going to purchase it! Nimble was that helpful that quickly. I love that I can grow into this tool as I continue to discover features I haven’t used yet.”

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
