If you’re looking for a way to move into the commercial offering of SugarCRM from Sugar Community Edition, we can help. Eligeo started out with Community Edition in 2006 and we’ve been through the whole progression from open source to commercial. Sugar CE ended with version 6.5 and we are currently working with Sugar 8 or higher in the commercial area. The good news about the upgrade is that you can easily port Sugar CE to Sugar Professional or Enterprise with ease. We can help you do that.
There are a number of reasons to upgrade from Sugar Community Edition , the most important is that the software is no longer supported. Here are a few other reasons to consider upgrading to Sugar Professional or Enterprise:
- It’s easy to port your existing data to Sugar, a lot of the backend is similar.
- The new version of Sugar is faster and developed with new web technologies.
- Complete suite of iOS and Android Apps to compliment your web version of Sugar.
- You get access to the latest advancements in CRM including Hint, Advanced Workflow, RESTful API technologies and much more.
- Privacy features specifically addressing legislation such as GDPR and CASL.
Is it free?
Sugar Professional and Enterprise does come with an annual licensing fee. You can purchase as little as 5-users or more. The price is still substantially lower than what is offered by competing products. The price includes all quarterly upgrades (annual if on-premise), support through your Sugar partner and Sugar, cloud hosting if chosen and full security patch delivery as issues are reported.
While Sugar Community Edition was popular, it was up to the users to ensure that their system was up to date. With a paid subscription, you are guaranteed to receive the latest updates to Sugar without wondering whether or not your system is vulnerable.
