About SugarCRM

SugarCRM is the world’s leading provider of open source customer relationship management (CRM) software. Over 7,000 customers and more than half a million users rely on SugarCRM to execute marketing programs, grow sales, retain customers and create custom business applications.

We at Sugar see CRM as more than just an application, but as a platform to power your organization. Built on a modern MVC platform, it leverages web services and an extensible core to enable CRM to fit into any organizational need or vertical market. We also take an open perspective to building the application, as we have an extensive community of developer that contribute fixes as well co-innovate with our internal technical teams in making SugarCRM a modern and stable application platform.

Why PHPBenelux likes SugarCRM

SugarCRM knows how communities work and the way they interact with them proves they know their stuff. We were fortunate enough to meet John Mertic at at PHPNW10 and then it occured to us that he was one of the speakers at our 2011 conference. John is not only I nice guy, he’s also an excellent representative of SugarCRM.

Apparently John and SugarCRM liked to way we run our conference and so they decided to become the platinum sponsor. Without their contribution, this conference could not happen, so we are VERY grateful.

SugarCRM doesn’t just support us financially, they also organize a code sprint alongside the conference. There will be a dedicated hacking lounge where you can join the sprint. The main focus is “integration”. During the conference, you will have the opportunity of working on exciting integrations with other services, frameworks and platforms. This event will bring the SugarCRM community closer to the PHP community.

Thank you SugarCRM for being so awesome !
