SugarCRM Launches Sugar On-Demand Application Hosting
SugarCRM Enters the Business Applications Hosting Market with Sugar On-Demand - a Service That Eliminates In-House Software Installation and Maintenance
Cupertino, CA --- 4 November, 2004 --- SugarCRM Inc. today announced Sugar On-Demand, a hosted version of its Sugar Sales Professional customer relationship management (CRM) application that is the first customizable, commercial open source CRM service offered as a hosted product deployment option to customers. The Sugar On-Demand service gives businesses either lacking the IT resources or needing an immediate solution the ability to utilize the world's fastest-growing open-source CRM platform --- complete with online access to the full source code for do-it-your-way CRM --- without the cost of installing, upgrading, patching and maintaining the software in-house.
Aimed at organizations with between 5 to 500 users, Sugar On-Demand delivers the same comprehensive set of core sales force automation features that Sugar Sales Professional does. Ranging from managing new leads and following each sales opportunity to completion, Sugar Sales Professional tracks customer contact information, documents customer interactions, tracks marketing activities, and supports case management for customer problems.
Advantages over other hosted CRM systems include:
"No two businesses are alike, and Sugar On-Demand is the first solution that enables organizations to take advantage of hosted CRM software without being locked into a one-size-fits-all system that will stand in the way of efficient sales management," said John Roberts, CEO of SugarCRM. "This represents a paradigm shift in the On-Demand model and yet another strength of the commercial open source movement."
