Qontext Takes SugarCon 2011 Online and Offers Free Social CRM to SugarCRM Users

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Qontext, the leader in business social contextual collaboration, is powering the SugarCon 2011 Online Community. Anyone, including SugarCon attendees or those who cannot travel to San Francisco this year can register for free at (mobile accessible). Qontext is also sponsoring, exhibiting, and Samir Ghosh, VP Business Development & Strategy, is speaking at SugarCon.

In addition, Qontext is offering all SugarCRM customers 1 year free service of Qontext integrated with SugarCRM for 25 users by registering in April and providing their Sugar URL.

With Qontext, SugarCRM users can collaborate inside SugarCRM records with colleagues, partners, customers or prospects outside of SugarCRM or your organization making it truly Social CRM. Qontext integrates instantly with any application, so collaborative conversations can be pinned to multiple business objects across applications. For example, an internal customer escalation issue could be pinned to a Case in SugarCRM and to an Order in an order entry system, giving meaningful context for all users to the ongoing collaboration and for future discovery.

"We're excited about the natural fit between SugarCRM and Qontext where Qontext can enable and capture internal cross-functional conversations right within SugarCRM," said Samir Ghosh, Qontext VP. "It can even be used to help close business and service customers. Rather than just chattering about sales opportunities, SugarCRM + Qontext adds real context for better cross-functional team selling and information recall."

"The addition of Qontext underlines our commitment to offer a broad Social CRM user experience anytime, anywhere," said SugarCRM CEO Larry Augustin, "It will allow users to be more productive and to connect more closely with their customers." Qontext was named the SugarExchange Product of the Month last October by SugarCRM.
