The 2 Million Businesses Using Google Apps Now Have Access to a CRM Tool That Easily Integrates With Existing Business Processes

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - September 14, 2010) -  Idea2, providing cloud-based CRM for growing businesses, today announced the launch of its web-based customer data management solution on the Google Apps Marketplace™.

Idea2 is a better way to manage customer and business data. Using Idea2, a business can easily organize data according to how they need to see and use it, delivering greater results than traditional CRM services. By integrating with Google Apps, Idea2 can offer small businesses the same sophisticated solutions that large companies enjoy.

"We created Idea2 to be more than just another CRM package," said Grace Schroeder, CEO of Idea2. "Because you can easily create new sections to keep track of any data, Idea2 makes it easy to organize and centralize customer impacting data that might be sitting in spreadsheets, old databases that are not accessible on the internet, or in filing cabinets. Our cloud computing model makes us an excellent fit for the Google Apps Marketplace which offers us a tremendous opportunity to reach the vast number of small and medium sized businesses that need us the most."

With Idea2 now available on Google Apps Marketplace, businesses can discover the benefits of integrating a CRM application into Gmail™ and Google Calendar™. The easy, single-sign-on provisioning makes the application a nice compliment to a business' existing Google services. For example, Idea2 users can take advantage of the Google Calendar integration to make sure that activities are managed in Idea2 yet allow for reminders that extend to their browsers and mobile devices.

"We are thrilled to add Idea2 to our portfolio of exceptional applications for small business on our Apps Marketplace," said Scott McMullan, Google Apps Partner Lead for Google Enterprise. "Through the Google Apps Marketplace, software vendors like Idea2 are helping us build a rich ecosystem of integrated apps that work seamlessly with Google Apps, allowing IT administrators to leverage the benefits of cloud computing and extend Google Apps to meet more of their business needs. We are excited to make CRM easier for the millions of Google Apps users who have embraced the cloud."
