Sugar CRM is one of the best open source CRM software in the world. It is one of the most customization friendly CRM which can be tweaked according to needs of sales, marketing and other teams. Even without customization, Sugar CRM caters to most of the needs of sales, marketing and customer support departments. Complete customer profile and past interactions are available on Sugar CRM interface. It even integrates with various social media platforms and pulls all the information so that customer support and sales teams know about the customer and their views about their company. Everything can be tracked from what campaigns the customer was targeted, whether customer was exposed to the campaign and what services or products the customer is interested in.

Pros :

Sugar CRM offers complete customization facility using Sugar Studio. Sugar Studio is a web based tool which helps to add custom functionalities or remove any functionality from the dashboard. This offers customization at the most granular level. Everything from a screen to a particular logic can be modified to suit or match the way your enterprise or teams work. Sugar CRM offers a free community version for the small and medium organizations and a commercial version which can be hosted on the company’s servers for higher security of your customer data. Sugar CRM has also launched Sugar Exchange where commercial CRM version users can find a host of third party applications to enhance the functionalities for their CRM. Sugar CRM offers a broad set of APIs which enables it developer partners to develop a large number of applications that can seamlessly integrate with Sugar CRM. Even the source code is available to the developers being an open source which makes these third party applications a lot better.

Cons :

There is a minimum requirement of 5 users and a subscription of one year for all paid versions. This is a deviation from the industry standards where most of the CRMs require a commitment of only 1 user. It restricts small and medium enterprises to use Sugar CRM. Customer support is not uniform for all the versions. Telephonic support should be available for all the customers with paid versions rather than only to customers with Enterprise or Ultimate versions.

I think it's fair to state that if you are a startup, you have to move along to find another software to manage your Sales process. Simply because this a huge system, that has a lot of experience built into, big community (but not so organized and the responses from Salesforce is what you'd expect from a dinosaur) and a huge marketplace to look for apps. If you are a startup, you need something easy to maintain, something that you can setup and start using it right then and there. None of this is found in Salesforce. But it is one of the most flexible systems I have every known. If you have money to pay for the Enterprise Edition. We have the Pro Edition and meets our needs half way. That's the way it works that version, almost anything you need to do has a sign on it that says "If you want this, move to EE.". Very frustrating, but if you have a bit of imagination, you can find a way to work around those problems and use most of it.

Pros :

They liberated the workflows for Contracts, a bit limited for our needs, but serves the purpose of verification and authorization of contracts. The Reports are the most flexible feature they have, along with the custom fields. Dashboards are a great way to communicate metrics and create operational boards. Not really the system, but they have a huge marketplace to look for apps, with the ability to extend greatly the features of SF.

Cons :

I have experience with Pro Edition. So:

  • If you want full workflows, buy the Enterprise Edition.
  • If you want triggers, but the EE - etc. Forecast doesn't work because it lacks of the ability to configure the right permissions. Their UI/UX sucks. Dashboards only have the ability to hold 20 components.
  • If you want several metrics and need to use the metric component you can easily reach that limit, Charts in Reports are very limited in configuration and charts types.

SFA is very sales-process oriented. The natural account sales stage progression—from a suspect to a lead to a contact to an opportunity and to a win or a loss—can be accomplished with one or very few clicks and from single instance page views. The user interface is uncluttered, simple and gets the job done in a minimum number of keystrokes, but as mentioned it lacks the inviting user experience of a Web 2.0 or consumer technologies application.

As Sage is one of the top two SMB accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software vendors, it's no surprise that its CRM software offers advantages in sharing back-office data with customer facing staff.

I've used this app primarily while conducting marketing efforts. It has been particularly valuable to me as I previously had to contact one of my analysts in the office to provide information on upcoming meetings/contacts. Now, I am able to easily pull the data and log info myself - cutting out the middleman.

Sage CRM Use Cases and Deployment ScopeI use Sage CRM for support call logging at CBS Inc. and I find it to be slow at times and inaccurate when using the insert note function. Sometimes it will log me out at random. Sage CRM is not very stable when [I am] using it for fast paced support call logging.
