Stride and Ecquire: A Match Made in the Cloud

Stride and Ecquire: A Match Made in the Cloud

As much as we love Stride here, it’s even better when paired with Ecquire and Gmail (And LinkedIn, too!). In fact, we think it’s so much better, that we encourage all of you to give it a go. And if you like it, there’s a special offer on Ecquire exclusively for Stride’ers.

So, read along to learn how to seamlessly set up the integration, how to use it with Gmail, and what goes on behind the scenes.

Setup

Ecquire works only with Chrome. If you haven’t done so already, install Chrome, and head over to the Ecquire website to install the extension.

Next, you’ll be prompted with a setup page for Ecquire, go ahead and choose Stride, and sign in when prompted. Choose the primary Stride Team in use (Unfortunately our current integration with Ecquire only allows one team per setup).

 

That’s it for setup!

Usage

The next time you log in to Gmail, you’ll prompted with an Ecquire demo. Feel free to follow through.

There are two ways that you can send an update over to Stride from Gmail, the first is to send an email, which Ecquire will prompt you to do something with it, or to press the Ecquire button, which is at the right of every email message.

Here’s the bar you’ll see after you send a message:

When you hit Review, you’ll be presented with the Sidebar. For a new deal, fill in all the information, and submit. For existing deals, update the status if necessary, and Ecquire will automatically know which deal to submit the info to.

When using the Ecquire button, the same Sidebar will show up. Here are a few places where you can find the button:

Twitter:

LinkedIn:

Gmail:

 

And that’s it! Simple, eh?

PSSSSSTT!

      Hey Eli,

      At this point we can’t add Tags through Ecquire. We’ll be sure to discuss this possible feature though!

      You can’t just yet, but I believe that is on Ecquire’s roadmap!
