Sage SalesLogix v8.0 includes enhanced Web and mobile interfaces that simplify role-based data access, searching, and collaboration to improve how users and teams manage their information and relationships. Enhanced security options and new administrator customization tools are among other new features. Sage has also advanced Sage SalesLogix Cloud deployment capabilities with additional memory capacity, an improved "Go Live" process, and expanded performance testing. The optional Sage SalesLogix Advanced Analytics enables users of all levels to gain actionable insights from big data analysis.
"Sage SalesLogix v8.0 emphasizes working smarter with role-relevant information," said Dan Wilzoch, senior vice president and general manager for Sage CRM Solutions, in a statement. "Empowering sales, marketing, and support personnel to focus on customers, increase account penetration, and build profitable relationships, no matter where they are or how they work, is essential. Sage SalesLogix ensures businesses manage this workflow effectively and collaboratively."
New Sage SalesLogix v8.0 enhancements:
- Role-based user interface helps users find data faster. Scrollable grids within tabs speed navigation across sales, marketing, service and support functions. List management navigation is easier, and new filters let users see only relevant data.
- Mobile enhancements expand data usefulness. Sage SalesLogix Mobile smart layouts for phones and tablets rotate between portrait and landscape views. New drop-down menus aid data, calendar, and activity access. Improved mobile search tools help locate, auto populate, and clear data.
- Planning tools improve team scheduling and collaboration. New calendar features allow side-by-side viewing of multiple users' schedules and resource/equipment availability. Individual and multiple activities can be edited quickly, and pop-up calendar alerts can be set per user preference.
- Efficiency tools boost productivity. Expanded Speed Search draws data from accounts, contacts, leads, opportunities, products, and contracts. Bulk data handling allows multiple elements, such as activities, leads, and opportunities, to be edited with a single click.
- Security options safeguard CRM data. Click-and-select permissions assign role-based and end-user security levels such as "read only," "read/write" or "none." Speed Search can be limited by role to set level of access granted. Administrative control of data exchanged between servers and mobile devices is expanded.
- New customization tools give administrators more control. Application Administrators can design Web forms without coding. Embedded language packs allow English, French, Russian, German, and Italian selections with a simple drop-down menu.
