SugarCon 2016 Recap: Day 3

by Sarah Friedlander Garcia on June 15, 2016

As of 2018, we've thrown on a fresh coat of paint and upgraded our look and name to W-Systems.

Keynotes

The last day of SugarCon started off with Dr. Catriona Wallace’s keynote “When Customers Take Charge: Transforming CRM to a Segment of One,” where she discussed the rise of digital and how it is transforming customers, not just businesses.

Other keynotes included:

Remy Malan, Chief Customer Office – SugarCRM: Creating a Best-In-Class Customer Success Strategy 

Giles House, CMO – CallidusCloud: Disrupt or be Disrupted

Fast Forward with Rich Green

The highlight of Wednesday’s keynotes was with Rich Green, SugarCRM’s new Chief Product Officer, who demonstrated Sugar’s vision for CRM by showcasing what is possible when the Sugar Intelligence Service is combined with artificial intelligence and intelligent agent technology.

His demonstration introduced “Candace,” an AI-powered intelligent agent that guides and assists users in interactions with customers, helping to plan more meetings, build deeper connections, recommend best actions, and respond to late-breaking developments as relationships evolve.   

Track Sessions

Erik Fenna from P&N Bank in Western Australia discussed how they have leveraged the Sugar platform to build a more inclusive review of the customers as well as managing key points of the customer lifecycle.

We will do a deeper dive of the information that we extracted from this session in a later post.

Sugar Lab

At the Sugar Lab, we were able to have some hands-on experience with upcoming Sugar features including the new mobile capabilities, Advanced Workflow's new enriched UI and Sugar's new email experience.

SugarCon App Throwdown

Global Partner Awards

At the Global Partner Awards, we were one of the recipients of the Sugar Competency Award, which was awarded to partners with over 20+ Sugar Certifications (not an easy feat!).

SugarCon 2017

Save the date! SugarCon 2017 will be held from September 25 - 28th, 2017. We look forward to seeing you then!
