Sococo® Team Space Available in SugarCRM ExchangeApp Marketplace for SugarCRM Distributed Teams

Award-Winning Social Communication Service Demos at SugarCon 2011

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - SugarCon - Sococo, the social communications company, today announced the availability of Team Space™ in SugarExchange, the app marketplace for SugarCRM. Team Space, the social communications service for distributed teams, provides chat, voice and multi-screen sharing in real-time for distributed SugarCRM sales teams.

"The theme of SugarCon -- 'The Future of Business is Open' -- really speaks to us here at Sococo since other CRM social technologies such as Chatter for example, are closed and limiting," said Paul Brody, Sococo president. "We provide a comprehensive, innovative & easy-to-use way to keep the lines of communication open for distributed sales teams so they can act upon data more quickly and close more deals."

Team Space will be highlighted at SugarCRM's SugarCon all this week. The fifth annual SugarCon brings together customers, partners, developers and experts from around the world and is packed with product, business, and technical presentations, and more than 1,000 participants.

"SugarCRM is dedicated to giving its users the ultimate freedom to choose how they wish to deploy their social CRM initiatives," said Jason Nassi, director of ISV alliances at SugarCRM. "Sococo's Team Space gives Sugar users a great tool for building social CRM processes inside their organizations."

What is Team Space?

Team Space is a social communications service for distributed teams. It provides voice, chat, multi-screen sharing in a spatial user interface that enables distributed teams to stay in contact throughout the workday effortlessly.

Unlike Skype (adhoc communications) and GoToMeeting (scheduled communications), Sococo Team Space provides a spatial user interface and avatars in an always-on environment making it easier and less expensive to chat, speak and share applications with others through online communications.

Team Space, through its newest feature "team screens," allows teams to place their online tools, such as SugarCRM, right into the place where they talk and chat all day. Team Screens are embedded browsers in the Team Space communications service which provide unique screen sharing capabilities that include: multiple screens, integrated browser support, spatial bookmarks, persistence and always-on services from within a Team Space room. Other online voice communications and web conferencing services already in the market only enable single screen sharing without these advanced features.

Team Screen content is always shared. Multiple people can click on the same Team Screen and discuss its content together in real time, complete with voice, chat and the ability to open and discuss several Team Screens at the same time.
