The manufacturing market is in the midst of a massive transformation—one that’s impacting everything from distribution channels and product teams to customer expectations.

Stop Reacting. Start Predicting.
From supply chain management to product demand forecasting, manufacturers have a lot of data. But too often, it’s decentralized and difficult to use. Sugar is the only manufacturing CRM built on a cutting-edge database that records every change in your customer’s journey. That means it’s remarkably fast and easy to extract 360 degree insights from your customer data, whether you need to get accurate forecasts for future production needs or simply want to reflect on past performance and pipeline.
Sugar’s sales capabilities provide every sales rep with the right information and insight to help them close more business. Transition from a transactional sales and service relationship to a more strategic one based on joint account planning and purchasing accountability. With SugarCRM, you will uncover up-sell and cross-sell opportunities for your existing customers by better capturing their needs, and by understanding previous purchase history and future potential. Streamline your operations across Sales, Service, Marketing and fulfillment to drive shorter sales cycles, reduce the cost of sales, and increase profits.
Intuitive and Customizable
Sugar’s award-winning user interface (UI) proactively provides employees with the right information at the right time. The UI is a simple, engaging, and consistent experience tailored to each team’s unique needs and ways of working across devices. Built-in tools like dashlets, duplicate checks, and no-touch information management eliminates time-consuming updates so every employee can focus more time on delighting customers. While Sugar works great right out of the box, it’s also incredibly easy to configure. Modules make it easy to create the exact system you need to stay connected to dealers, distributors, retailers and customers, and to create the workflows and process your teams need to succeed. Drive adoption, increases productivity, foster collaboration, and enable better decision making with Sugar’s manufacturing CRM.
