Being ever so timely, SugarCRM announced their iPad application at SugarCon this past April. As a devoted Apple fanatic, I have to say, this adds a major cool-factor to Sugar.
The app is fully customizable and it looks pretty ridiculous.
Some big highlights…
Quick view display: shows the most urgent opportunities, important contacts, and upcoming meetings.
Customizable modules screen:Users can drag-and-drop their favorite SugarCRM modules to easily organize the application according to their needs.
Data synchronization:Keep contacts and other information synced between the iPad and the cloud.
Easy drill-down: Quickly access important customer information that is most relevant while on-the-road.
The iPad is awesome, but let’s not forget it’s little brother, iPhone, which is outfitted with similar functionality.
Sugar’s CEO Larry Augustine spoke about the new release at Sugarcon…
“We’re pleased to announce a native application of Sugar on the iPad,” noted Larry Augustin, CEO, SugarCRM. “The ultra-portability and groundbreaking iPad user experience that is made possible for us as a web-based business by Appcelerator fits perfectly with the extensible SugarCRM architecture that can scale across multiple platforms. We believe that our mobile workforce customers will benefit greatly from the enhanced capabilities that this new platform offers.”
Overall, it looks like a very handy little piece of technology.
