Are you looking into CRM Software to integrate with your Quickbooks application? Two of the leading CRM solutions are SugarCRM and Salesforce. Which is best for you? Which integrates best with Quickbooks?
All businesses at some stage or another tackle the task of implementing CRM and ERP software to manage their day to day operations. However, the planning of the integration between them is often overlooked. As a consequence, your CRM and ERP applications have the potential to become stand alone silos with no data effectively passing back and forth.
