D&B and SugarCRM Alliance to Transform How CRM Users Sell, Market and Serve Customers

D&B (NYSE:DNB), the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses, and SugarCRM, the company enabling businesses to create extraordinary customer relationships with the most innovative and affordable CRM solution in the market, today announced an alliance to enable seamless, native integration of D&B business content into SugarCRM.

The integrated solution will be available to customers in April 2014.

“Sales, marketing, and customer service teams are fighting a losing battle against incomplete data,” said Mike Sabin, senior vice president, Partner Solutions, D&B. “CRM users want to maximize their sales and marketing efforts, but until now they’ve had limited access to quality business information. Through our new partnership with SugarCRM, users can overcome this challenge with company, industry, and contact data flowing directly into their CRM.”

Both companies aim to provide SugarCRM users with an intelligent CRM to grow their businesses through integrated access to prospect, customer, and opportunity information. Customers gain access to D&B’s global data on more than 230 million businesses and 100 million contacts.

“Today’s typical customer-facing individual is overwhelmed by the sheer volume of data available around prospects and customers,” said Clint Oram, co-founder and CTO, SugarCRM. “Combining the powerful, intuitive user experience from Sugar UX™ with D&B’s extensive data services enables Sugar users to turn ‘big data’ into ‘little data’— leading to more informed and intelligent decisions, shorter sales cycles, and greater overall customer satisfaction.”

SugarCRM users will experience a number of advantages:

  • Time savings from more complete, current, and accurate information with no manual entry
  • Faster closed deals by identifying the best prospects and gaining visibility into cross-sell and upsell opportunities
  • Improved campaign effectiveness and metrics through more accurate lead data
  • Stronger customer loyalty and advocacy through a 360-degree customer view

SugarCRM users can choose from three levels of D&B data integration based on their needs and budgets. Each level provides different types and quantities of company and contact information, as well as detailed industry and competitor data.

Available Through SugarCRM Resellers

The integrated solution will be available through SugarCRM resellers. Users can purchase D&B data subscriptions from participating SugarCRM channel partners, who will provide local sales and support.

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing.

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT.

The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo – to be held June 3-5, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City – will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide...
The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
