Fresh off of introducing an app to integrate Google Drive and Salesforce, Cirrus Insight has launched Cirrus Insight Mobile, an iOS app that allows users to access information from Salesforce directly from a variety of email platforms.
Released on July 8, the new app -- which allows users to access information directly from Salesforce -- from the Laguna Hills, California-based company is compatible with Gmail, Exchange Outlook, Yahoo, Lotus Notes and any other IMAP or ActiveSync email platform.
Users can also complete certain Salesforce-generated tasks from their inbox. With email tracking, users can see who opens their emails in real time as well as access customer information, create leads, set reminders, schedule meetings and events and close opportunities.
Cirrus Insight Mobile is available only for iPhones running iOS 6 and 7. Rollout for the iPad and Android devices will follow shortly, the company said.
