A revamped wireless interface enables the data to be delivered to iPhones and BlackBerrys.
The new Tracker feature lets users follow which salespeople are using the software and which features they're using most. "Every sales person is an artist," according to SugarCRM CEO John Roberts. "It's best not to put them in front of a computer and expect them to all use it the same way." Tracking individual usage should help managers figure out how to best support their salespeople.InformationWeek
