M5 Networks Partners with SWK Technologies to Integrate M5Connect™ with SageCRM


    Seamless Phone Integration for Improved Productivity and Transparency

    New York, NY (July 7, 2011) –M5 Networks, the market leader in managed, hosted business Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and SWK Technologies, Inc., a Sage Gold Certified Master Developer, today jointly announced the integration of M5’award winning M5Connect CTI (Computer Telephony API) with SageCRM Solutions. M5Connect for SageCRM seamlessly joins SageCRM and the business phone for the best possible information management and efficiency. Integrated telephony features, once only available in the call center, are now accessible to all SageCRM users. The combined solution gives management a never before available view of critical business metrics.

    More than 63,500 businesses and 3.1 million users worldwide rely on SageCRM Solutions to develop profitable, long-term business relationships. SWK Technologies is exhibiting at Sage Summit, Sage’s annual conference designed for Sage partners and customers. Representatives from SWK and M5 Networks will be available at booth #723.

    With M5Connect for SageCRM, users can click–to-dial to start a call from within SageCRM anytime a phone number is available. Inbound screen pops are displayed to provide lead or contact information before the call is answered. Note taking is automated and real time analytics are available to help measure sales, support and operational success.

    “SageCRM is a full-featured, web-based CRM software solution that is easy to use and quick to deploy. With M5Connect, SageCRM can become the repository for all customer activities, phone calls included, without the cumbersome manual chore of entering each phone call,” said Brent Barbara, Vice President of Client Solutions and Alliances for M5 Networks.

    “Adoption of a business system like SageCRM, depends on providing tools of value to the users,” says Jeffery Roth, CEO of SWK Technologies, Inc. “By automating call record entry and making notation an intuitive part of placing a phone call, we’ve simplified the job of the sales agent, while at the same time, greatly improved the system’s ability to provide manage a window into the activities that drive the business.”

    “M5 is committed to helping companies bridge the gap between the telephone and critical business applications like Sage CRM.” said Brent Barbara. “M5Connect for SageCRM is the latest example of how it is possible to improve a system’s data and analytics, while at the same time satisfying the users’ need for speed and ease of use.    Harmonious integration of the telephone and CRM system isn’t just a “nice-to-have” for companies that want to improve sales and support performance, it’s a non-negotiable requirement.”
