Sage CRM vs. SalesLogix

From time to time, there’s a new client who tells us that, before enlisting our help, they were deciding between Sage CRM vs. Saleslogix for their CRM software solution. This doesn’t surprise us because we frequently evaluate the benefits of our competitors.

This way, we can understand what sets Sage CRM apart from the competition. Over the years, we’ve narrowed it down to these key differentiators:

  • Affordability
  • Hosting
  • Flexibility
  • Workflows
  • Accounting

In today’s article, we’re going to dive deeper into these elements and see how Saleslogix stands up. By the end of this comparison, you should have a better idea of which will work for your team and business goals.

The Comparison of Sage CRM vs. SalesLogix (Infor CRM)

1. AFFORDABILITY

Many favor tiered pricing models to keep entice users with deeper pockets to spend more on high-value features. It’s not the path we choose at Sage CRM.

Sage: $30 to $40/user/month. There isn’t a tiered pricing plan.

Infor CRM: $65/user/month for a Cloud-Based solution. $1195/user for an On-Premise solution.

2. HOSTING

This often-overlooked topic is important for security-minded users. At Sage CRM, we focus on companies who need to host their CRM on personal servers within your control.

Sage: It’s a web-app that lives on your personal servers.

Infor CRM: Offers both a cloud-based and on-premise solution.

3. FLEXIBILITY

Each Sage CRM has its own unique requirements and goals. That’s why we make flexibility a priority with our platform. You can customize the solution and make it your own.

Sage: You can customize it for your specific needs using ASP, VB.net or javascript.

Infor CRM: Customization features make it possible to increase the flexibility of the software.

4. WORKFLOWS

CRMs benefit small businesses because of their ability to automate basic processes. It takes a methodical strategy to implement these rules, but can completely transform your business.

Sage: Automate the customer experience and rethink the way your company interacts with customers.

Infor CRM: Features ION workflows, based on the Infor Back Office Extension functionality.

5. ACCOUNTING

Syncing your accounting data with customer data can provide a deeper insight into the lifecycle, operations and health of your business.

Sage: It integrates with Sage accounting and business management solutions, including: Sage 50, Sage 100, Sage 300, and X3.

Infor CRM: Can integrate with a variety of accounting platforms.

The Ultimate Benefit of Choosing Sage CRM

These technical benefits set Sage CRM apart from the competition, but we believe DCAA is the software’s real secret weapon. We’ve been managing Sage CRM for businesses as our primary focus for 14+ years. As you can imagine, we’ve learned a thing or two in that time.

SalesLogix may work great for your business; we’re not here to tell you what to do. However, if you’re feeling stressed about managing this system, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re the leading experts in Sage CRM project management, and are happy to help you get started with the process. 

Editorial Comment:  SalesLogix was a premier CRM solution for a long time.  However, with the introduction of the Internet (around 2000), the market for SalesLogix pretty much died.  If a company is looking to acquire a new CRM now and is looking closely at SaleLogix, it would only be because they are familiar with it from a past life/job.   I can’t think of a scenario wherein SalesLogix would make sense in 2018 (or beyond).  My 2 cents. – Dan
