In the crowded field of customer relationship management (CRM) systems, SugarCRM stands out—not only for its modular design, but also for the ease with which you can develop, customize, and extend your CRM applications.

      Comments about oreilly Building on SugarCRM:

      My company is evaluating SugarCRM and I wanted to work through some examples using the Community Edition. Most of the examples in this book can only be used if you have the Professional Edition. This book was not useful.
