Aussie SugarCRM reseller makes Elite list

22 Jan 16

SugarCRM partner Plus Computing, which has offices in Melbourne, has been named one of the top 10% of the vendor’s worldwide channel partners, garnering it an Elite Partner status.

The IT business solutions provider, which is headquartered in the United States, is one of 23 companies from 16 countries named on this year’s Elite list, and the only entry with an Australian foothold.

The status recognises partners who have attained the highest level of recognition in the company’s partner program, building large-scale growing businesses which provide consulting, implementation, integration, training and development services for Sugar; meeting or exceeding standards for technical proficiency and professional certification in Sugar products; and demonstrating consistent success implementing Sugar in hosted, on-premises and private cloud environments.

Clint Oram, SugarCRM co-founder and chief technology officer, says Elite partners delivered a 36% year on year increase in annually recurring subscription revenue in 2015 and added more than 350 new SugarCRM customers.

“These industry-leading partners help our customers extend the value of their Sugar investments by providing strategic CRM consulting, tailored solutions that complement Sugar, techniques for CRM best practices and flexible implementation and integration services,” Oram says.

The company says the inclusion partners from five countries never before represented on the Elite Partner list shows the significant market momentum it is gaining worldwide.

Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Brazil and Canada all made it on to the list for the first time.

SugarCRM says the announcement of both the Australian partner and the first Kiwi partner on the list is ‘representative of SugarCRM’s commitment to the ANZ region, in which it sees high growth opportunities’.
