SugarCRM Selected as an InfoWorld Bossie Award Winner

CUPERTINO, Calif. (September 02, 2010) – SugarCRM, the world’s leading provider of open source customer relationship management (CRM) software, today announced that it has been chosen as a 2010 InfoWorld Best of Open Source (Bossie) Awards winner in the category for best open source applications.

Companies around the world rely on technology to enable and enhance their business operations and deliver on their business strategies. The InfoWorld Bossie Awards recognize each year the best business-oriented open source software products.

“The Bossie 2010 award winners are our top picks among open source projects for many different reasons. Some are longtime favorites, and others are completely new. Some are fast ways to fulfill a familiar need, while others allow companies to do things that weren’t possible or affordable until they came along,” said Doug Dineley, executive editor, Test Center, InfoWorld. “The one quality they all share is extreme usefulness, and a combination of features that beats all others in their class.”

SugarCRM’s open source model enables businesses around the world to avoid the disadvantages associated with proprietary software by allowing customers full access to the software’s source code and giving businesses complete flexibility via unlimited customization and integration capabilities. SugarCRM’s deployment value proposition includes several options: vendor hosted-SaaS supplied by SugarCRM and cloud-based delivery options powered by the Sugar Open Cloud ecosystem.

“At SugarCRM we are passionate about giving our customers the control that open source can provide, and so we are honored to be recognized by InfoWorld as a Bossie Award winner,” said Larry Augustin, chief executive officer of SugarCRM. “Open source is at the heart of SugarCRM’s business, and it is nice to receive accolades for our efforts.”
