PriceThis is a costly solution. Given the great support and features you get, many will think it
is worth it. As you add more users, however, the costs can add up significantly.
Getting this system set up is not difficult at all. If you have a hosting account with InterServer, you can
use the one-click installation script to get everything installed. Once that is done, it is necessary to go
through all the different configuration steps to ensure everything is set up just the way you want it. This
can include enabling or disabling features, making adjustments to the fields used, and more. Those
without much experience configuring apps like this may find it a little overwhelming, but once you get
started it is not difficult.
SugarCRM offers lots of great features that will help ensure your business is operating as efficiently as
possible. You’ll have features focused on helping to track and improve customer relations, marketing,
and sales teams. Each of these categories can help different teams within your organization to work
smarter and get better results. When used correctly, most people report that this software suite more
than pays for itself by the improved performance.
Most of the customization with this system will come from enabling or disabling features. There are so
many features that many companies don’t need to use them all. If you aren’t using the marketing
portion of SugarCRM, for example, you can have it ‘turned off’ so it doesn’t get in the way. Enabling it
down the road will allow you to take advantage of the feature when you are ready. It is also possible to
customize things like field names, the colors used, and more. While there are limits on what you can do,
the overall customization of this system is quite good.

if you have a lot of users, it can add up quite quickly so make sure to get a good estimate of the total
monthly costs before you start using this system.
