Today we’re going to look at the Romulus Add-in for Microsoft Outlook.
We work with local government offices across the country who use Romulus centralize request information. CRMs are only as powerful as the data they have access to and one major source of constituent requests is email.
Instead of manually copy-and-pasting constituent and request information, which is error-prone and tedious, we believe applications should work seamlessly together. Outlook is far and away the most common email provider used by local government, so we have integrated Romulus directly into the Outlook experience.
Setup is simple, quick, and easy. We’ll walk you through each step of the way. Have questions? Send us an email at email@example.com, we would love to hear from you!
