The Combined Power of G Suite and SugarCRM

Sugar User Group Q&A

What is the cost of G Suite?

The price for the G Suite Business License $10/user per month and the G Suite Enterprise License is $25/user per month. There are various promotions for new users, offering discounts up to 30%.

What is the cost of the Gmail integration to Sugar (Collabspot)?

Collabspot starts at $9/user per month when paid annually. The $15/user per month option includes more frequent Calendar and Contacts synchronization.

What results do customers usually see with the Gmail integration to Sugar?

Collabspot will help save a lot of time for Sugar users that are manually updating data in the CRM as often as possible. Some companies save as much as 4 hours/week from just doing data entry.

On the other hand, if your company has low CRM adoption and little to no data entry is done, Collabspot has contributed to boosting adoption rates by up to 80%.

Companies with remote employees or sales teams have saved a large amount of time using automation. Also, with the amount of data the managers have access to, it gives them more visibility on what’s working and what isn’t, thus making more informed decisions and increasing productivity.

Can remote workers take advantage of the integration on their mobile devices?

Absolutely. As working from anywhere is becoming the norm for a lot of companies, G Suite and Collabspot are the type of tools to use if you’re implementing a mobile or remote work policy within your organization, as they enable a secure working environment, regardless of where your employees are.
