In a recent press release, GoodData announced the launch of GoodData Sales Analytics for SugarCRM, an app that delivers immediate and deep insight into the metrics behind the quarterly number. The application is a full-fledged BI solution that can be customized according to Sugar CRM-powered companies’ sales pipeline analytics without complex technology implementation or expensive product investment.
The SugarCRM users can use this application for free throughout 2011. Also, they can also easily upgrade the app for greater customization, deeper reporting on SugarCRM data, and other advanced analytics needs.
"This integration with GoodData provides robust analytical tools for thousands of Sugar users seeking immediate insight into their business performance; or those with limited resources to deploy larger and more costly BI tools," said Clint Oram, CTO and co-founder of SugarCRM. "Both of our products leverage the power of the open cloud to enable and empower intuitive yet powerful CRM solutions."
"Every company wants to visualize and analyze their business data, and GoodData provides an easier way to start than the typical big investments in broken BI approaches," said Sam Boonin, vice president of marketing at GoodData. "GoodData for SugarCRM is a great way for companies to get a taste of the power of our on-demand platform."
GoodData's purpose-built app for sales analytics is available on SugarExchange, the SugarCRM marketplace.
