SugarCRM Selected as Finalist for 2007 SIIA CODiE Awards

Commercial open source CRM solution named award finalist for Best Customer Relationship Management Solution and Best Open Source

CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- SugarCRM Inc., the world's leading provider of commercial open source customer relationship management (CRM) software, has been recognized by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) as a finalist for the 2007 CODiE Awards. Acknowledged as the leading honor for the software and information industry's finest products, the CODiE Awards have identified outstanding achievement in software and digital content development for 22 years. Sugar 4.5 is a finalist for "Best Customer Relationship Management Solution" and "Best Open Source Solution."

Since reaching 1,000 customers last month, SugarCRM has continued to receive accolades as an industry leader and visionary by winning Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC(R))'s Customer Interaction Solutions(R) 2006 Product of the Year Award as well as being named a finalist for the 17th Annual Jolt Product Excellence Awards. The Jolt Awards recognize the most innovative, trend-setting products and have designated Sugar 4.5 a finalist in product excellence. Sugar's fully AJAX-enabled user interface has revolutionized the way users interact with their CRM system.

"We are committed to bringing customers a best-in-class CRM system to ensure increased success in managing customer relationships," said John Roberts, CEO and co-founder of SugarCRM. "Through commercial open source development, we are able to evolve our platform more quickly and reliably than any proprietary CRM provider."

SugarCRM's industry-leading commercial open source CRM solution has also allowed customers to overcome the number one barrier to CRM success -- customer adoption. Last month, Sterling PCU, provider of specialized equipment for the appliance and automotive industry, was presented with a Stevie Award for CRM Implementation & User Adoption at the 2006 Selling Power Sales Excellence Awards in Las Vegas.

"Our commercial open source CRM suite is cost effective and flexible," said Roberts. "We are seeing incredible user adoption rates as people continue to customize our products to optimize their day-to-day customer interactions and to grow their businesses."
