Denver, Colorado —November 23, 2010 — SugarCRM, the world’s fastest growing customer relationship management (CRM) company, today announced a new partnership with The CRM Connection, a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management software systems for small and medium-sized businesses and a Top U.S. ACT! Reseller award recipient in 2008 and 2009. The CRM Connection has added SugarCRM’s commercial solutions to its existing portfolio of solutions, resulting in a full complement of cloud-based CRM solutions ranging from $30-$65 per user per month.
“After a careful evaluation of a number of Cloud-based CRM software packages from industry-leading software vendors, we concluded SugarCRM was the ideal company to partner with,” says John Kaufman, managing partner of The CRM Connection. “SugarCRM complements our existing CRM offerings by providing an affordable hosted and/or on-premise solution to the markets we serve.”
The latest release of Sugar 6 set the bar for ease of use, flexibility and openness for CRM.

Sugar 6 delivers a clean, bold look and empowers users with the ability to view and consume data from nearly any source. Sugar 6 is designed to run on any cloud service platform or on-premise operating system.
