SugarCRM adds 50 New Partners
Open source customer relationship management organization adds 50 partners to its Open+ Partner Program.
SugerCRM announced the addition of 50 new members to their partner program, expanding the company's worldwide reach since the announcement of the program in the first half of 2010.

Re: Inaccurate SugarCRM partner statementsIt appears that there were a few errors in the Sugar press release. I have changed the story to reflect your information. Thanks for the feedback, Ryan.
Inaccurate SugarCRM partner statementsWhile we appreciate that Castle CRM is a valued Sage partner, it is not the leading U.S. Sage SalesLogix partner. That position belongs to Infinity Info Systems who has held the honor for the past three years. SugarCRM's August 5th press release also inaccurately cites a Sage partner as the largest selling ACT! reseller in North America - this position is held by TopLine Consulting for two years running. - Ryan Zuk, Sage North America
