Open-Source SugarCRM Clearly a Winner
Updated · Apr 28, 2010
Open-source CRM provider, SugarCRM was named as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. As noted in this TMC story, SugarCRM was chosen based on a set of five criteria namely innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“‘As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging,’ said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. ‘We congratulate this year’s OnDemand 100 for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload.’
“According to SugarCRM, its open source model facilitates businesses to avoid the disadvantages associated with proprietary software, because the customers are provided with full access to the software’s source code. This in turn provides businesses with complete flexibility via unlimited customization and integration capabilities.”
