The Award-Winning Marketing Automation Platform Does the Work to Boost Lead Velocity and Drive High Pipeline Quality

CUPERTINO, Calif. – May 2, 2022 – SugarCRM, provider of the award-winning AI-driven CRM platform, today announced it has won a Gold Stevie Award in the “Business Technology – Lead Generation Solution” category in the 20th Annual American Business Awards.

The Stevie American Business Awards crowns top honors for achievement in the workplace. Winners were announced Thursday, April 28 and will be recognized during a gala awards ceremony on June 13 in New York City.

Driving high-quality marketing leads into the sales pipeline is critical to business success. Still, generating qualified leads remains an elusive task for many organizations. Sugar’s global survey of 1,600 sales and marketing professionals worldwide reveals that 54 percent of sales leads generated by marketing are deemed to be either poorly qualified or underqualified, resulting in wasted efforts and lost opportunities that prevents organizations from growing their business.

With SugarPredict, Sugar Market analyzes historical lead activity, account, deal, and company data to predict which leads are most likely to become customers accurately.
