ProcessMaker’s tight integration with SugarCRM delivers visual workflow design and execution to users

SUGARCON 2012 – SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 24, 2012 Colosa, Inc., the developer of the ProcessMaker open source BPM and workflow suite, today announced a fresh technology integration with SugarCRM, the world’s fastest-growing customer relationship management (CRM) company. The new integration provides users with a powerful visual workflow designer and process execution module for use within SugarCRM.

The announcement was made at SugarCRM’s 6th annual SugarCon event, an annual customer, user and partner conference, being held April 23-26, 2012 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California. Colosa is a silver sponsor.

Brian Reale, CEO of Colosa said: “Sugar users and partners want to have a more powerful visual workflow designer and engine that is available inside SugarCRM. We listened, and thanks to ProcessMaker’s very tight integration with Sugar, those users can now create slick workflow maps and execute business processes directly inside Sugar using our 100% web-based, drag-and-drop designer software.”

With a more powerful visual workflow designer and engine available inside SugarCRM, users can design workflows that control the way Sugar tasks get routed to different Sugar users and do so based on business logic that reads information directly from SugarCRM. They can also now track how long these tasks take to be performed, as well as control which Sugar screens get displayed and in what order, during a workflow.

Clint Oram, CTO, vice president of product strategy and co-founder of SugarCRM said: “CRM workflow brings organizations the power of customer management and workflow management in one easy to use application ensuring that company standards and procedures are not just followed, but enforced. The end result of CRM workflow is better lead management, happier leads and higher conversion rates. We are looking forward to watching our customers experience great success with the.ProcessMaker and SugarCRM integration.”
