X2Engine has released the latest version of X2Engine CRM, which includes marketing capabilities as well as a variety of other key enhancements. X2Engine CRM 1.5 enables users to create, manage, and analyze highly targeted marketing campaigns.

The integrated marketing capabilities in X2Engine CRM provide users with a platform from which they can direct targeted marketing email and other communications to prospects and customers. Users start by creating dynamic, targeted lists by filtering X2Engine contacts based on any field or combination or fields. With flexible WYSISYG and HTML editors, users develop and preview campaign content. After launching the campaign, metrics, such as number opened, viewed, and clicked, enable users to measure campaign success and further target groups of prospects based on their reaction to the marketing campaign.

X2Engine CRM 1.5 also has a variety of other key enhancements, including integration with Google Apps. X2Engine CRM uses OAuth, an open standard for authorization, enabling users to login to X2Engine CRM with their Google UserID and access their Google Apps data and functionality.

Advanced data cleansing tools ensure data integrity, including removal of duplicate records.

Live Notifications lets user immediately see when new notifications have arrived, as well as how many are awaiting.
