Is your business been looking to be more productive and accurate in 2017?  If you are using SugarCRM, let BrainSell help you raise your overall program to the next level, with the top plug-in options for your business needs.  We are kicking off our free webinar series again this year, beginning with these awesome add-on’s.  The first webinar will be on Wednesday, January 18th at 2:00 pm EST – scroll below to register!

SugarCRM does not have to work alone – it can converse with many different systems and automate mundane data entry across multiple platforms.   SugarCRM users know that, due to the developer-friendly/open-source nature of SugarCRM’s code, there are a diverse number of available applications created to make your SugarCRM experience easier.  The convenient applications cover many varied topics, but we have found people regularly asking about particular features. The vast variety of plug-in options are confusing.  To make the process easier, BrainSell has narrowed down the top choices for 2017.


Top 5 SugarCRM Add-Ons You Didn’t Know You Needed

Tenfold LogoTenfold – Telephony Integration

Integrate your phone system directly into your SugarCRM instance. Using a pop-up user interface (UI), you can add, change, and edit all contacts, leads and opportunities – directly from a phone call.  Tenfold logs calls automatically and even has a feature where you can assign follow-ups to other team members through SugarCRM directly through the UI.  The reporting feature shows the length of calls, most inbound and outbound and allows for gamification of your top callers.

Collabspot LogoCollabSpot – Gmail & Outlook Integrations

Collabspot is a tool that easily allows your Gmail account to integrate to your SugarCRM.  No need to copy and paste or the have multiple CRM windows and Gmail windows open. Save hours by linking contacts this way, and ensuring the entries are accurate and free of human error during transcription.  Create Leads, Contacts, Opportunities and more from Gmail to Sugar on the fly.  In addition,  you can archive email from Gmail and have them appear in the corresponding Sugar record.  Work your database from inside Gmail!

FlexiDocs LogoFlexidocs – Document Generation & e-Signing Platform

Flexidocs allows you to generate high quality documents using data directly from SugarCRM without need for transcription.  Create document templates in PowerPoint, Excel or Word.  Using the SugarCRM fields, complete the document with the appropriate data, and print to PDF cleanly.  Flexidocs are smart enough to allow for formulaic statements, that offer variable data in conditional fields.  eSign events are caught in real time within SugarCRM!

ClicData LogoClicData – Reporting & Business Intelligence
