You will not find another Open Source CRM application that is freely available, includes full Enterprise class functionality, based on original code, and so simple to further develop
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
The Open Source CRM project Zurmo today announced the application will be adding Reporting and Workflow early next year. Zurmo is the first CRM project of its kind to include deep Enterprise features in an Open Source Edition. The application is currently in beta. Significant releases to date have included Sales Force Automation, Activity Management, Gamification, and Social CRM.
“Reps and managers are blindfolded if they don’t have the ability to drill down on customer facing metrics through reporting. Without automation through a good workflow engine, employees get caught up in tedious minutiae and lose face time with their customers,” states Zurmo Co-Founder Jason Green. “Certain functionality is undeniably crucial to attaining an effective CRM strategy. Developers and end users shouldn’t be deprived of real CRM functionality just because the software edition they are using is freely downloadable. Zurmo is about taking the handcuffs off and giving the open source CRM community the respect it deserves.”
“You will not find another Open Source CRM application that is freely available, includes full Enterprise class functionality, based on original code, and so simple to further develop,” states Zurmo Co-Founder Ray Stoeckicht. “At Zurmo we want people to take what we’re building together and make it better. We help the community. The community helps us grow and support the software. It’s kind of a no-brainer.”
