SalesAgility has entered into a collaboration with Univention to launch SuiteCRM, the open source Customer Relationship Management application in the Univention App Center.
Univention Corporate Server (UCS) is a widely deployed open source solution that enables customers to deploy secure and unified web applications either locally (on-premise) or in their favoured hosting environments such as Amazon Web Services plus a number of other large hosting providers.
A significant advantage of UCS is claimed to be that it brings directory services as a core function. This means that customers can deploy the business applications they need such as CRM, ERP and Document Management as well as controlling access and security to them from a central point. Users benefit from a single sign-on to all applications they have permissions to access which support the SAML technology. This greatly reduces complexity and improves security for systems administrators in small and medium sized businesses.
Nico Gulden, Product Manager at Univention, said: "SuiteCRM extends the choice among customer relationship solutions in the App Center for our users and allows a better match making for their customer requirements. We are happy to win with SalesAgility, another international software partner for our App Center and a new quite interesting solution for all UCS users."
Greg Soper, CEO of SalesAgility, commented: "We've admired what the Univention team has been doing for a few years now so it's a real privilege to be part of the family of products available on the platform and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Univention and their clients."
SalesAgility also recognises the excellent work undertaken by Digitec who built and configured SuiteCRM for the App Centre. Digitec has been developing software for more than 30 years and is an established provider of solutions in the area of trading in financial instruments. Its core products cover MM/FX pricing, trading and settlement.
