We are the leading SuiteCRM consulting company in German-speaking countries – but not only there

SuiteCRM is the open-source alternative to established (proprietary) CRM systems. SuiteCRM is largely based on the popular SugarCRM® (Community Edition), one of the world’s most widely used CRM solutions.1

SuiteCRM is free and open-source.2

Clear cost advantages for SuiteCRM

Clear cost advantages for SuiteCRM compared to conventional CRM systems

We have developed several investment models and compared SuiteCRM to conventional CRM solutions/licensing models. We dispensed with the usual marketing mumbo jumbo and made realistic assumptions.

When it comes to money, many manufacturers of CRM systems are rather evasive. Often, they only have ‘ROI calculations’. Aside from the difficulty in calculating the ROI, in doing so, the manufacturer often neglects to mention the total investment. At first, a monthly usage charge of €75 per user doesn’t sound bad for a cloud solution, but with 30 users, this means a total of €135,000 after 5 years.

Here you can find a comparison of a cloud and on-premises solution with SuiteCRM based on total investment:

SuiteCRM Projects

Many projects for small and medium-sized enterprises as well as for large companies

Open-source projects for software infrastructure have been accepted for a long time (the best example being Linux). Open-source solutions for business applications, however, have remained unusual. This has changed in recent years: both SMEs and large companies rely on SuiteCRM.

Linux is used by most SMEs and large companies. And not just anywhere, in business critical areas. And Linux is a free, open-source software. How could this solution establish itself over other (commercial) vendors? Well, neither marketing arguments nor colourful user interfaces are what led decision makers to rely on Linux. Rather, the unbeatable price/performance ratio and its solid technical base.

Most CRM provider rely heavily on marketing. That’s because almost all conventional CRM solutions are fundamentally interchangeable. At least in their general functionalities of all systems are similar. Functionally, SuiteCRM does not differ significantly from other vendors’ solutions. THE distinguishing feature is being open-source.

We did our homework: SuiteCRM and other open source solutions are fully compliant

Lately, there has been some talks about whether or not going open source is a wise idea. Many businesses are asking themselves if they can trust such a freely accessible environment, vis-à-vis traditional vendor provided solutions.

The EU itself could not turn a blind eye on the subject, commissioning a review of the open source framework. Their finding is actually encouraging small-medium enterprises, as well as bigger firms, to embrace the change and go full throttle on open source solutions.

We did some research ourselves on why corporations worry about freely sourced software. There are three main reasons: lack of supplier liability, insufficient technical support and unclear license conditions. These turned out to be all myths, as open source solutions, including SuiteCRM, are completely and thoroughly compliant with the latest regulations.

Read here how we dismiss each and every one of the above prejudices.

SuiteCRM Implementation

Each implementation project is individual. The challenge, however, is on the one hand to take into account the specific customer needs, on the other hand not to “reinvent the wheel”. That is why we use our proven approach for SuiteCRM implementation projects, which has the following steps:

  • Analysis of the current situation (business processes/ technical environment)
  • Definition of SuiteCRM project goals
  • Setting up the system and configuration of the system
  • Customizing of the SuiteCRM-system, if necessary, additional programming and interface customization
  • Data Migration
  • Training
  • Operation, Maintenance and support of the system

Regardless of whether you want to run the SuiteCRM-system in your own data center or let us do the job: We are your partner when it comes to customizing your SuiteCRM-system.

Migration to SuiteCRM

There are good reasons to migrate to SuiteCRM. The lower costs are not the only decisive point for many customers. The ease of use, flexibility, and support offers are factors that make switching to SuiteCRM a clear choice. Similarly, if you use your system to host, you will be more independent. SuiteCRM users each have their own database and their own Software instance.

Changing to SuiteCRM means virtually no loss of functionality. With our experience from numerous migrations, you can be sure that your current system will be reliably migrated to SuiteCRM. Tell us about your migration needs.
