Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
The gamified, Open Source CRM project Zurmo announced today the unveiling of the software’s GA release in an around-the-world tour that will include cities in Italy, South Korea, China, Belgium, Germany, Argentina, and the United States. The GA release, which is slated for September, will include further development of CRM gamification, Social CRM functionality, mobile integration, and additional functionality that meets the project goal of providing a robust CRM system that is scalable from a development standpoint and easy to use. Upcoming events can be found on the Zurmo Community Calendar.
“Although Zurmo is a US based project, a large portion of our most passionate contributors are located overseas in countries that have embraced the open source model. We have worked together through thick and thin preparing our GA release and it only makes sense that we meet our community members in person, where they live,” states Zurmo Community Manager Stafford McKay. “We are looking forward to bringing Zurmo around the world and sitting down with as many people as we possibly can who have made Zurmo possible. We rarely have the opportunity to see our contributors because they live and work in different locations. But as a Customer Relationship Management tool, the software we are building is ultimately about bringing people together,” continues McKay.

August 28 – Rome, Italy
September 20th – Seoul, South Korea
October 1st – Beijing, China
October 9th – Brussels, Belgium
October 11th – Berlin, Germany
