Apps for Good: Cirrus Insight

(This blog post is part of the “Apps for Good” series where awesome AppExchange providers guest post about their applications.)

Thanks very much to our friends at Cloud for Good for inviting us to guest post about Cirrus Insight.

If you are a nonprofit that uses Salesforce and Google Apps, we built Cirrus Insight for you!

Cirrus Insight seamlessly integrates with Gmail, where constituent communication happens, and brings in contextual information from Salesforce, where vital constituent information is stored.


Dozens of our early customers are nonprofit organizations, and you can read their thoughtful reviews on the Salesforce AppExchange, where Cirrus Insight is the top integration between Salesforce and Google Apps.

“This app really ties Gmail and Salesforce together perfectly.”

“It’s an essential app if you use Gmail and Salesforce.”

“Highly recommended for all Google Apps and Salesforce users.”

It’s easy to get started with a 30-day free trial to try it for yourself:
Step 1: Install Cirrus Insight for Google Chrome or Firefox browser.  It takes just 30 seconds!  There is no setup or admin configuration.
Step 2: Open an email from your Gmail inbox. You’ll see Cirrus Insight in the right margin or sidebar of Gmail.  It will replace the Google Ads that typically occupy that part of the browser window.  Click to Sign In just like you do in Salesforce.  We use industry standard oAuth to provide secure authentication via Salesforce.
Step 3: Every time you open an email from your Gmail inbox, Cirrus Insight will now show you relevant contextual information about the person from Salesforce including contact information, activities, cases, and opportunities.  No more toggling back and forth between Gmail and Salesforce to do lookups and search for information!
Not only does Cirrus Insight bring contextual data from Salesforce into Gmail, it also allows you save emails to Salesforce, create new tasks and events, log calls, and manage cases and opportunities.  All without leaving Gmail.
By delivering instant customer context from Salesforce right into Gmail, Cirrus Insight helps you work smarter and faster so you can more efficiently and effectively pursue your social mission.
