Sugar Sell Makes the Hard Things Easy for Modern-Day Sales Warriors to Automate Anything, Accelerate Everything, and Predict What’s Next to Fuel Business Growth

SAN FRANCISCO – February 21, 2024 – SugarCRM, provider of the award-winning AI-driven sales automation platform, today announced it was named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Sales Force Automation in Q1 2024. 

Constellation evaluated more than 70 solutions to compile its ShortList of 14 vendors, based on client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share and internal research.  

In the ShortList, Constellation Research Vice President and Principal Analyst Liz Miller underscores the paramount importance of SFA usability for sales teams’ adoption, noting that mobile access, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) powered digital assistants and copilots, automated workflows and processes for data capture, entry, augmentation, cleansing and analysis, have become must-have features.  

“Users from sellers to supervisors expect more robust account analytics and insights that directly benefit salespeople and tools that reduce manual data entry and surface actionable insights for optimized performance,” said Miller.
