Collaboration can play a critical role in the sales process of any company and many believe collaboration is a key attribute of a successful social business. Consider how sales professionals are required to work outside of their CRM system to engage engineering, legal or finance to evaluate, structure and negotiate a proposal. Leading companies are beginning to utilize enterprise collaboration environments to facilitate these robust conversations and provide a mechanism to refer, reference and repeat their successes.

Traditionally, business analytics has been the domain of finance and sales management. At SugarCRM, we believe there’s more to be gained for the sales professional by analyzing prospect, customer and campaign data to 1) gain customer insight to determine product adoption or potential churn; and 2) help determine the best opportunity to pursue based on historical data and campaign success across an organization.
SugarCRM is integrated with IBM’s comprehensive, unified portfolio of business analytics software that provide a host of capabilities that help selling organizations identify the right opportunities to pursue while alerting sales professionals to any relevant changes in the customer base.
One of Sugar’s key strengths is its enterprise class CRM platform purpose built to support complex integration challenges for companies who require simple integration to spreadsheets or a multitude of integration requirements including guaranteed message delivery, data migration or connecting to an Enterprise Service Bus.
Access to on premise and cloud-based data sources and transaction systems allow companies to feed their customer facing professionals with the information they need to provide the best customer interactions every time.
Any solution your company relies on requires an enterprise class infrastructure with a proven track record of success and stability. IBM delivers a market-leading portfolio of middleware, database and security software combined with enterprise class servers and cloud deployment options. A real track record of infrastructure success.
