Sales

SugarCRM Sales goes beyond traditional sales systems designed to force data entry and empowers you to sell. Focus your time and energy on the most important deals in your pipeline, what matters most, and when it matters, so you can be prepared, engage at the right time, and stay on top of your accounts.

360-Degree View of Your Customers

Sell proactively and avoid surprises by knowing what matters to your accounts and contacts, when it matters. Know your accounts inside and out with 360-degree customer activity history across the extended selling enterprise. Understand what matters to your key contacts and when to engage with smarter account intelligence based on cross-channel and social media activity.

Expert Collaboration

Sell with the power of the collective enterprise. Get every resource you need when you need it. Connect in real time with experts across your organization, collaborate and share winning practices to accelerate every stage of the deal cycle.

Social Selling

Sell based on relationships. Leverage social networks to expand your prospecting and contact networks. Track key selling opportunities across social sites and respond directly from your CRM system. Manage all social interactions along with your other communications in the context of your CRM system. Sugar is fully Social CRM ready.
