Applications such as [those in the App Throwdown] are pushing the edge for how we see and use CRM every day.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
SugarOutfitters, a SugarCRM module discovery service and marketplace, today announced that they have become the exclusive sponsor of the App Throwdown at SugarCon 2013. The App Throwdown takes place on April 10th as part of SugarCon 2013 (April 8th-11th, 2013). SugarCon is SugarCRM's annual customer, developer, and partner conference where more than 1,000 customers, partners, users, developers, and implementers are expected to attend. The 2nd annual App Throwdown is a contest where applications compete for the audience’s vote to be crowned the most innovative solution, while doing so in only a very short demo window.
“At SugarOutfitters, we look forward to the App Throwdown event every year. These solutions are a great example of the boundary-pushing applications that the SugarCRM ecosystem has to offer, ” said Jason Eggers, Co-Founder of SugarOutfitters. “CRM (customer relationship management) is in a transformative and exciting time right now. Applications such as these are changing how we see and use CRM every day.”
Of the six App Throwdown contestants, two will have solutions included in the SugarOutfitters catalog to be distributed at SugarCon. Blake Robertson (Alertus Technologies) is the creator of Website Visitor Tracker and Jeff Bickart (NEPO Systems) is the creator of both OrgChart and the soon to be released Harvest integration that is in the App Throwdown finals. These solutions are part of the forty solutions included in the catalog that represent some of the finest third party modules, themes and integrations available for SugarCRM.
"This year our sponsor of the App Throwdown is SugarOutfitters, the third-party SugarCRM app store, " says John Mertic, Community Manager at SugarCRM. "The SugarOutfitters mission aligns perfectly with our focus on user experience by simplifying the solution discovery process for our customers, prospects, and partners. We look forward to working together to make a seamless marketplace and collaborative experience for our customers."
Dedicated to SugarCRM modules, themes, integrations, and other similar solutions, SugarOutfitters has built an ecosystem around SugarCRM, the popular customer relationship management application. Much like the contestants of the App Throwdown, each solution on SugarOutfitters undergoes a rigorous submission process, that includes both automatic and manual reviews, along with ongoing community-based verification.
