    Nimble AMS Is First Salesforce Lightning Certified Association Management Software

    Yesterday NimbleUser received notice that Nimble AMS has been certified by Salesforce as Lightning Ready.   This makes Nimble AMS the only Association Management Software that has met this certification.  

    Being Lightning Ready is key to our commitment of Nimble AMS customers having access to the latest technology from Salesforce.

    What is Salesforce Lightning?

    Lightning is the collection of tools and technologies behind a significant upgrade to the Salesforce platform. Lightning includes:

    • Experience: A set of modern user interfaces optimized for speed. This includes the Lightning Experience, Salesforce1 Mobile app and template-based communities.
    • Lightning Component Framework: A JavaScript framework and set of standard components that allow you to build reusable components to customize the Lightning Experience, Salesforce1 Mobile app and template-based communities and build your own standalone apps.
    • Visual Building Tools: Drag-and-drop technologies for fast and easy app building & customizations. Use the Lightning App Builder to customize the Lightning Experience and Salesforce1 Mobile app. Use the Community Builder to customize template-based communities.
    • Lightning Exchange: A section of the AppExchange where you can find 70+ partner components to jumpstart your development.
    • Lightning Design System: Style guides and modern enterprise UX best practices to build pixel perfect apps that match the look and feel of the Lightning Experience and Salesforce1 Mobile app.

    What Does This Mean To Our Customers?

    The professional and trade associations that use Nimble AMS will have additional tools to help their staff be more productive and drive their mission forward faster.  

    The benefits are numerous but here are a few of my favorite features that I think make this goal a reality:

    • Activity Feed: Your staff need to quickly know two things, what just happened with a member account and what they need to do next. The Activity Feed does just that.
    • Contextual Hovers: You can now see everything going on with a member without going to different pages in the application.
    • Customizable Dashboards: Dashboards are available with more than three columns — in fact, you can have up to nine. This was one of the top most requested customer features on the Salesforce IdeaExchange.
