Comprehensive Web CRM Connected or Disconnected Access Sage SalesLogix via a Web browser— whether you’re connected or disconnected—without sacrificing usability, customizations, or a rich user experience.
Comprehensive Web CRM Full Customer Service Functionality Create, manage, and activate Contracts, as well as monitor Contract usage.

Extensive Lead Management Lead De-duplication Wizard Use the Leads Import Wizard to easily perform lead de- duplication upon. Leads are automatically de- duped against current Leads and Contacts in the system.
Extensive Lead Management Activities for Leads & Group Actions Make Leads the subject of a meeting, phone call, or a to-do task; record notes; and more to ensure action is taken—and perform these actions en mass, streamlining efficiencies.
Extensive Lead Management Create a Response Responses no longer have to be associated to a Campaign. You can now create a Response or “pre- opportunity” upon import to indicate an expressed interest in your product or service. Use Responses to track leads that are not ready to be converted to an Opportunity or for leads that aren’t associated with a campaign—ensuring a potential sale does not fall through the cracks.

New Task Pane provides Filters, Common Tasks, Process Tasks, and Group Tasks for quick access to important information and actions.
