Nimble Updates Contact Management Software

Santa Monica-based Nimble, the developer of a software-as-a-service, contact management service which is headed by former Goldmine founder Jon Ferrara, said this morning that it has debuted a new version of its service. The firm said that Nimble 2.0 focuses on social discovery, improved usability, and better privacy and marketing integration. Among other features, the firm said it now allows users to add their own, custom field to contact records, and a new "Notification" section which aggregates all of a user's incoming messages, requests, likes, and more in a single section. Ferrara is looking to apply much of the knowledge he gained in making Goldmine one of the most popular, pre-web software packages for contact tracking, and applying that to the new, social web via a software-as-a-service offering. Nimble has the backing of such investors as Google Ventures and Mark Cuban, among others.
