Sage North America Announces Managed Cloud Servers and Staging Environments for Sage SalesLogix Cloud CRM Customers

New Cloud Offerings Enable Customers to Add Applications and Services to Cloud CRM Deployments and Efficiently Stage Upgrades and Customizations Before Deploying

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - December 8, 2010) - Sage North America, a provider of business management software and services to more than three million small and midsized businesses in Canada and the United States, today announced general availability of two next-generation Cloud services for Sage SalesLogix Cloud customers -- Managed Cloud Servers and Staging Environments. These new services are the latest in a series of ongoing enhancements that extend CRM flexibility and business value beyond traditional SaaS offerings.

Managed Cloud Servers let customers or Sage CRM Solutions Business Partners extend CRM functionality by conveniently enabling add-on, ISV, and custom applications in the Cloud. Staging Environments offer an efficient way to let companies test upgrades, customizations and new applications in a secure, parallel environment, and review and release functionality to users at the time that suits their business. Staging Environments are included in the Sage SalesLogix Cloud subscription price of $65 per named user per month, at a rate of 1 day per month. Additional days can be purchased for a fee. Managed Cloud Servers are available for an additional charge in a variety of configurations.

"These new capabilities further our vision of solutions in the Cloud," said Joe Bergera, executive vice president and global general manager, Sage CRM Solutions. "Rather than rewrite applications in a proprietary language and platform, Managed Cloud Servers make existing applications, without modification, conveniently available within a customer's Sage SalesLogix Cloud deployment." 

Sage SalesLogix Cloud, introduced in early 2010, is a next-generation Cloud-based CRM offering, built upon the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud™ (EC2™) infrastructure. Sage SalesLogix Cloud customers enjoy the flexibility and rapid time to value of on-demand systems, combined with the security, control and data ownership associated with traditional on-premise solutions.

Sage SalesLogix provides a complete view of customer interactions across sales, marketing, customer service and support functions so teams can collaborate and respond promptly and knowledgeably to customer inquiries or sales opportunities. Powerful process automation and a highly customizable platform help businesses achieve stronger sales results. For more information about Sage SalesLogix Cloud visit www.sagesaleslogix.com/cloud.
