About Riva CRM Integration

Riva is the leader in CRM and email integration. We help customers improve CRM user adoption and success through better and simpler email integration.

Since 2008, we have developed connectors for a dozen of the world’s best CRM systems – including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SAP Cloud for Customer, Oracle Sales Cloud, SugarCRM, Infor CRM, and others – and five corporate email messaging systems. We provide transparent CRM integration and sync between the world’s lead CRMs and Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, Google Apps, IBM Notes, and Novell GroupWise.

What makes Riva the leader in this industry is that it delivers reliable, scalable, secure, transparent, server-side synchronization of CRM and email collaboration information. That means there are no client-side Outlook or IBM Notes client plug-ins or mobile apps to install, configure or manage.

Riva works more reliably than other options. It’s simpler to manage. It supports all native email clients and mobile devices. Riva is more flexible and offers more configuration/customization options for customer fields, custom objects and custom sync requirements. Riva is the proven leader for enterprise customers. (For example, one of our customers uses Riva to sync 28,000+ CRM users.) And, most importantly, Riva just works. It’s a set- and-forget solution that allows sales and support organizations to focus on delivering customer value rather than spending time troubleshooting Outlook or other email client of mobile issues.

Riva is privately-held with offices in the U.S., Canada and Germany with 200 partners around the world. Riva has over 1,300 customers globally – including 35+ Fortune 500 companies, 12 of the world’s largest banks, numerous Global 1000 companies and hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses.

These team members will be responsible for providing remote Riva installation, configuration, customization and advanced engagement/support for Riva’s clients.

Riva’s Edmonton headquarters has grown from 15 to 50 people in the past 3 years and we expect that number to grow to 70 in the next 18 to 24 months. We are looking to add people who take pride and pleasure in helping customers be successful – people who understand the importance and value of implementing Riva and building and enhancing a commercial application that is consumed by customers from around the world.
