SugarCRM vs Sage ACT: Features and Functions

SugarCRM vs Sage ACT- CRM Sales Management and Forecast

Typically, one of the main concerns for selecting a CRM solution in the market is to provide in-depth views and analysis of the sales prospects and opportunitiess.  Sage ACT! addresses this very well in the SMB market and makes sure that business marketing demands for its users are met. 

However, SugarCRM has developed a sales pipeline that is considered by some to be more updated and responsive – especially in the web/online environment.  It provides tracking of contacts and opportunities with proper monitoring of the accounts on the dashboards.  In contrast to Salesforce, SugarCRM creates a distinct database instance for each customer instead of forcing all online customers to share a single, massive database pool.

CRM Mobile Functions

Sage ACT! provides mobile access on cellular phones like BlackBerry and Android devices. The best thing about SugarCRM is the fact that it offers connection to more popular devices such as the Apple iPhones and iPads. Its major plus factor is credited to its ability to connect an offline user to the mobile network.  Thus, any changes made on the database will be saved and then automatically uploaded to the system when the online connection is re-established.
