SageCRM Software Increases Efficiency for SMBs

SageCRM wants to improve the efficiency and total cost of ownership for midmarket companies in need of customer relationship management software.

Sage North America, part of The Sage Group, announced SageCRM v6.2, a user-friendly CRM system that helps deliver a low total cost of ownership for small and medium-sized businesses. Version 6.2 includes features such as pre-configured and customizable screen themes, an expanded editor for multilingual e-mail campaigns and an enhanced graphical view for managing relationships between multiple contacts.

"Sage CRM Solutions help businesses take full advantage of the automation and customization efficiencies technology makes possible," said Sage CRM Solutions North America Senior Vice President and General Manager David van Toor. "SageCRM v6.2 specifically lets organizations outfit their CRM systems to support the unique business environments they compete in, access critical financial and operations data through extensive ERP integration, and, overall, run their businesses more effectively."

Some of the other enhanced capabilities are a new branding toolkit, simplified address management which operates on a single screen, and enhanced integration, including additional sales data synchronizations, Outlook(R) integration, and administrator management improvements.

Pricing for a standalone SageCRM system begins at $599 per user. SageCRM v6.2 is currently available as a standalone CRM system and as part of the Sage Accpac Extended Enterprise Suite, although the company says it will be available in the Sage MAS 90 and 200 Enterprise Suite later this month.
