“ Sugarcrm has so much promise and flexibility, but unfortunately my firm has been unwilling to invest due to the fact the company straddles the line between an open source and a proprietary product. The way the licensing is presented makes it difficult to know if we own the code we develop, and there is always the possibility of being left unsupported in the future. We have recently been investing in the fork of sugarcrm called suitecrm and it answers the vast majority of our issues with sugar. ”

Rate this solution SuiteCRM le 26/12/2014

“ SuiteCRM has answered all of our issues we found troubling with SugarCRM, namely the quasi-open source nature of Sugar. Where we were not comfortable investing in Sugarcrm due to a number of issues with it's licensing, suiteCRM allows us to fully commit and develop knowing we have a solid future. While like others there is the attraction of saving on fees, for us, it is all about 100% ownership of our code and control of our data. Too many commercial options do not let us keep what is ours. ”
