Sage has introduced a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) system on the Amazon EC2 cloud. The Sage SalesLogix Cloud uses a private cloud service for mid-market organisations, which operates both on the desktop and on mobile devices.
Sage said the product offers contact management, multi-channel campaign management, e-marketing and mobile access to business analytics and reporting, back office integration, and can be customised.
The cloud service provides 100Gbytes of data storage for every 50 users, equating to approximately 2Gbytes per user.
"While CRM in the cloud offers reduced capital expenditure, scalability and flexibility, concerns over data security and governance have long been a barrier to entry for many enterprises," said Bob Anderson, head of Sage's Enterprise Business. "With new deployment options coming front of mind for CIOs and demand for hybrid solutions increasing, Sage and its dedicated business partners have the understanding and expertise to help them make the leap to the cloud."
