Contactology integrates with Tactile CRM

Written by george on Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

We’re pleased to announce the latest integration with Tactile CRM thanks to the hard work of the team at Contactology.

Contactology is an email marketing software built for business that allows you to easily create, send and track email messages, newsletters and more. Using the new Tactile CRM import driver users can:

  • Import contact data directly into your Contactology account from Tactile CRM.
  • Contactology imports the Tactile CRM custom field data allowing users to personalise their email marketing campaigns
  • Contactology automatically dedups your list
  • All unsubscribe data is managed within Contactology, eliminating the need for Tactile CRM users to manage email marketing preferences.

You can see how the integration works in the video below, and full details are available on the Contactology blog.

Tactile CRM and Zendesk play nicely together

Written by admin on Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

We spoke last month about how we’d integrated Zendesk with Tactile CRM so that you can easily see support tickets from within Tactile CRM.

Now the nice folk at Zendesk have added a widget to allow you to look up customer details in Tactile CRM when you are logged into Zendesk.

The video below shows how it all works (and how easy it is to setup!) now you can make sure you know about any outstanding support issues before making an important sales call, and see all the background information about a client before answering their support ticket.

As a special offer, if you sign up for Zendesk before the end of July and email nick [at] zendesk.com they’ll sort you out with a second month free!
