SugarCRM Releases Sugar 7.9

SugarCRM Releases Sugar 7.9 Today SugarCRM announced the release of Sugar 7.9. With a redesigned quotes module, Sugar 7.9 feature enhancements aim to help organizations generate revenue faster all while being intuitive and more user-friendly.

The Quotes Module is one of the main points of focus on the release of Sugar 7.9.

SugarCRM has reported that the new quote generation and management application is easy to use, quick to deploy, flexible enough to configure for individual needs and extensible enough to integrate seamlessly into complex enterprise environments. SugarCRM has added features like drag-and-drop line-item reordering; “click-to-group,” which allows users to add and group line items easily; and new capabilities to export quotes so sales reps can easily show potential customers pricing options. Now, Sugar users can more easily edit and revise pricing options while negotiating with their customers.

Additional new features of Sugar 7.9 include:

Next-Generation Reporting – A CRM ultimately must provide detailed insights to all users across a company to focus efforts at strengthening customer relationships. Reporting is a key vehicle to observe trends and aberrations in order to prioritize actions to meet business goals. Sugar 7.9 brings the first of a series of improvements to the Reporting module.

Advanced Workflow – Enhanced Advanced Workflow addresses more complex business use cases and also improves the overall experience of designing and updating processes for Sugar administrators. In the 7.9 release, we have added the ability to trigger a process based on fields changing to/from specific values, additional operators for evaluating text fields and additional variable user options for record assignment.

Performance – An improved data query framework provides significant performance improvements across all databases through query optimizations by enabling administrators to execute the same (or similar) SQL statements repeatedly with high efficiency. The updated framework also improves database scalability and security.
