Sage Partner Net@Work Leverages Sage SalesLogix CRM Cloud Platform to Create OnTheGo™ Mobile App for iPhone® and Android™

Sage Data Sharing Strategy Aids Easy and Secure Information Use and Collaboration Across Business Applications and Mobile Devices

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -  Sage North America today announced that Sage CRM Solutions business partner Net@Work has released its OnTheGo™ mobile CRM application for Sage SalesLogix 7.5.2 and Sage SalesLogix Cloud users with iPhone and Android devices. Net@Work used the Sage SalesLogix Cloud CRM platform to create OnTheGo, leveraging Sage protocol for easy and secure data sharing across business applications.

"Sage SalesLogix Cloud doesn't force us into a specific deployment method, nor does it restrict us only to specific aspects of its technology," explained Danny Estrada, Net@Work CRM practice director. "Sage's robust SData™ protocol, for instance, allows us to quickly present transactional data to any user at any time without the need to store data on a mobile device, letting the applications we develop work across environments where multiple device types and systems are in place."

OnTheGo for Sage SalesLogix and Sage SalesLogix Cloud helps users access real-time information from internal customer and prospect databases on their iPhone and Android mobile devices. It can be downloaded from the Apple® Store or Android Market -- each site also offers a free trial version. BlackBerry® and Windows Mobile® versions are in development.

"We are fortunate to have a vibrant partner community building solutions that extend the value of Sage SalesLogix," added Larry Ritter, senior vice president and general manager for Sage CRM Solutions. "We built Sage SalesLogix to be extensible and it's great to see this new mobile application from Net@Work leverage the flexibility of our SData™ architecture."

Net@Work is seeing demand for OnTheGo grow within the healthcare, financial services and media/advertising industries, among others, as well as from the small business community based on its rapid adoption of iPhone and Android devices. Net@Work expects to extend OnTheGo through the Sage partner channel based on interest it is receiving from Sage CRM Solutions business partners who want to take advantage of pre-built, cloud-based mobile CRM functionality.

"The Sage method of data sharing provides nearly unlimited opportunities to extend the value of Sage SalesLogix, and the OnTheGo application is a great mobile example," said Sam Biardo, founder and CEO of Technology Advisors, a Chicago-based Sage CRM Solutions business partner. "Our customers are demanding access to their data in more ways, and on the latest devices. We see a great future for this and other mobile solutions."
