Chicago, IL (Vocus) February 19, 2010
SAVO, the industry-defining sales enablement leader, announced today that its on-demand sales enablement application is now integrated with the SAP® Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) application. SAVO’s sales enablement application is the only such solution integrated with SAP CRM 7.0 and later versions. SAVO worked closely with SAP to deliver packaged integration on current releases and out-of-the-box integration in future releases between its solution and SAP CRM, eliminating the need for custom integration.
