Sage Selects TimeLinx for New CRM-Based Project Management Solution
Sage North America has selected the TimeLinx professional services and project management solution to expand its Endorsed Development Partner Program to the Sage SalesLogix CRM solution. TimeLinx will be exclusively distributed through the Sage reseller channel across North, South, and Central America and the Philippines.
Sage will market TimeLinx Express, which embeds project management and time- and expense-entry functions directly within Sage SalesLogix LAN, cloud, and Web offerings. Sage Business Partners will now have the opportunity to sell, implement, and support TimeLinx Express as the new "Project Management Express Edition for Sage SalesLogix powered by TimeLinx" solution.
TimeLinx extends the Sage SalesLogix CRM system throughout the service delivery lifecycle for firms with a professional services component to their business. TimeLinx also offers three other editions for Sage SalesLogix and similar editions for SageCRM.com. TimeLinx eliminates silos and provides information essential to marketing, sales, professional services, customer service and support, finance, and senior management. It enables real-time data-sharing across the organization on the tasks, timelines, resources, and profitability of every project and client.
"Sage SalesLogix and TimeLinx, working together, give our customers the necessary visibility into the entire service delivery and customer lifecycles—a unique offering for our CRM customers and the CRM market in general," says Jeff Gregorec, vice president of sales and strategic alliances for Sage CRM Solutions. "Any business providing services to their customers in consulting, technology services, manufacturing, and other industries will find this solution very compelling."
"TimeLinx enables companies to not only manage the tasks and calendars of projects, but also manage and precisely control dollars and maximize profits through a proprietary rules-based Revenue Optimization Engine," notes TimeLinx President Mark Engelberg. "By building on top of a CRM solution, all customer information is stored in the same system and various departments can maximize in real-time the profitability of any customer, project, task, consultant, category of work, and more."
Endorsed Partner Solutions are available exclusively from Sage, offering customers additional functionality that integrates with Sage products.
