“This product has allowed our company to grow and do more things automated than our other home-grown system. The product is open-source, which allows our developers to tweak it as much as they need to. Service with SugarCRM has also been good. It typically takes them 24 hours to get back to any email cases, which isn’t bad at all.”

- Mike Gabriele from SIS

“We love it ... this software is so robust, inexpensive and has so many additional modules that can be added on.”

- Jody Johnson, ActionCOACH Team Sage

Most negative review: Most negative review:

“It’s limited compared to other CRMs. It may have some capabilities I am not aware of, but it is complicated to get those added in. It does not integrate with the Marketing Automation tool I am using.”

- Karen Yetter, Mercator Advisory Group

“Functionality is lacking. The interface is bland and efficient mass updating is nonexistent.”

- Mark Ventriglia, Nexaweb, Inc.

“The approach across all modules is standard; if you learn one, you’ve learned them all. The dashboards are excellent, and you can manage your day from one screen. Integrates with MS Office well (Outlook, Word, Excel). You can see everything you need/want to know about customers/prospects.”

- Peter Fletcher
