Customer Relations Management System

One-Click Install SugarCRM Private Cloud

SugarCRM is the #1 rated CRM software in the world. More importantly, unlike a lot of other CRM solutions, SugarCRM can be placed in your own hosted infrastructure. In other words, you can fully own the data, the system, and ultimately your customer’s full experience.

 

Not Sure How to Start?

 

 

To address the growing needs of business, we have created a one-click install for SugarCRM. Whether you wish to host your CRM software in one of our highly-secure public clouds or wish to create a SugarCRM Private Cloud, our cloud architects have created a full solution that encompasses best practices to give you the best performance possible.

Why SugarCRM Private Cloud makes sense

CRM solutions handle a lot of sensitive data and often handle customer-facing messaging and processes. By using a SugarCRM Private Cloud solution for your CRM software, you are able to better secure customer data as well as have more control over your branding. Our SugarCRM Private Clouds give you full control over your environment, while the technical maintenance and support are handled by GigeNET’s team of certified IT professionals. A private cloud server from GigeNET is truly the best of both worlds.


Why SugarCRM?

Customer relationship management (CRM) software focuses on maintaining communication with both customers and prospects. Typical features on these platforms include email templates and mass mailings, the handling of the prospect to customer journey (from lead to customer), integrations with accounting or warehouse software to close the loop on procurement and billing, and more.

CRM systems have become the digital nerve center of most businesses and are typically the hub into which most systems integrate. These platforms handle valuable personal data from both your customers and prospective customers, providing that information to your sales and marketing organizations located anywhere in the world – wherever they need to do business. As the modern workforce continues to become uncoupled from a home office, the need for a hosted solution has become the norm.

SugarCRM is one of the most popular CRM solutions on the market today. SugarCRM boasts a user base of over 2 million from more than 120 countries. SugarCRM handles sales-force automation, marketing campaigns, collaboration, mobile accessibility, social, customer support, and reporting. This CRM software also includes easy to use AI-based predictive insights, unified customer data modeling, tight integration with a number of marketing systems, and a lot more.

Along with a long list of happy customers, SugarCRM has been a 6 time Gartner Magic Quadrant Visionary for sales force automation tools and has won PCMag’s Business Choice Award 4 times in a row. SugarCRM has a 4-star rating on G2Crowd with nearly 600 reviews.
