Evaluation and Selection

Before using Cirrus Insights, I was using Appirio calendar, and various other packages that claim syncing between salesforce and google.
Appirio was already being used by our organization. We'd also tried using various email connectors.


The plugin is installed inside your internet browser as an extension/add-on.
It can be found in most add on stores and is easy to install. Usually just a few clicks.
It handles authorization for you once you sign in, and then takes care of all the rest.
It couldn't be easier to get working right out of the box.
You're up in running in less than 5 minutes.


No customizations are required. It logs into your salesforce account with your authorization and starts pulling data immediately.


Very easy to use. Everything opens in a familiar interface right inside the google apps sidebar.
It brings in salesforce records, so as long as you know google apps / gmail and salesforce you'll be all set.

It's point and click.


Haven't had a down issue in the almost 2 years I've been using the product.
Support is also super responsive.
Pulls in salesforce data very quickly, and syncs very quickly.

Vendor Relationship

Cirrus was very easy to work with whenever I needed help or support - which, thankfully, wasn't that often. They were available via email and chat. But, like I mentioned earlier, there wasn't much need for support...The product just works.
