Cupertino, CA — May 14, 2012 — SugarCRM, the world’s fastest-growing customer relationship management (CRM) company, announced today that TMC, an integrated media company, has honored the company with a Customer Interaction Solutions 2012 CRM Excellence Award.

Matt Davidson, Chief Executive Officer at USAFact stated, “Our quote customizations have taken our customer interaction to a new level. It allows us to focus on the customer and provide them with many options for cost effective solutions that grow our business. The new efficiency with which we can do this is the truly remarkable part.”
