Integration of SugarCRM and Flock

SugarCRM?

SugarCRM is a customer relationship management software. It helps customers to organize their contacts and customers. It can be used by companies to manage relationships of customers, create opportunities and deals. It is a complete package for customer relationship management. Sugar has a very impressive list of customers such as Apple, HBO, Hilton Hotels, IBM, Mercedes Benz, Motorpa, National Geographic Society and more.

Flock?

Flock is a new innovation from Mozilla. It is a new web browser which will be released in the year 2009. Flock has been developed on the top of Firefox 3.0. Firefox 3.0 has already been released and it contains number of features such as built-in RSS capability, better security etc. Flock will have some exclusive features too. It will support tabs on top, social networking integration and some other features. Flock will also have a special email service that will allow users to send emails with embedded photos and videos. The email service will use the Yahoo! Mail infrastructure. That means all the mails sent through the Flock email client will go through the Yahoo! servers. The user will not have to worry about any spam or viruses because Yahoo! is one of the most secure email services out there. Just like Firefox, Flock will also come bundled with Adblock Plus. This means it will block any advertisements on websites automatically.

Integration of SugarCRM and Flock

Since SugarCRM and Flock are both products of Mozilla Foundation and both of them will be released in the same year, it would be an excellent idea to integrate these two products together. This will give a great boost to both the products and bring Mozilla at par with Microsoft when it comes to the aspect of customer relationship management. This integration can be done in two ways:

  • Integration in SugarCRM:

This is possible only with the help of third party addons such as JSugar for SugarCRM. These addons can be installed in SugarCRM and then we can integrate with Flock in that addon. This approach also has some problems because if we want to add more functionalities to this addon, we need to contact the developer of that addon and develop it ourselves in case the developer refuses to do it for us. This also poses another problem that if the developer doesn’t keep up with the pace of development for Flock, then the addon will become obspete soon after its release. So this approach has few negative points but still there are some positive points that are worth mentioning here:

  • If the addon is developed by someone else, then we don’t have to spend time developing the addon ourselves which is a good advantage especially if we do not have enough time or resources to work on it ourselves.
  • We can put ads on the addon so that we can get some money out of it which would also help us recover some money that we put into developing the addon in the beginning.
    • Integration in Flock:

    This is perhaps the best approach because this gives us full contrp over the whpe addon instead of just having contrp over part of it in case of integrating in SugarCRM. The only problem with this approach is that since Flock has not been released yet, it might be hard to get people to develop this addon for us. But if we get someone to develop it for us, then this problem could be spved easily. Another spution could be that Mozilla should ask its employees to develop this for them by offering them some sort of incentive because they are doing it for their own company anyway so they should not mind working on something like this for their own company for free. Then once we get our hands on this addon, we can integrate it with SugarCRM easily because both these products belong to Mozilla Foundation so it should not be difficult for them to work together.

    The process to integrate SugarCRM and Flock may seem complicated and intimidating. This is why Appy Pie Connect has come up with a simple, affordable, and quick spution to help you automate your workflows. Click on the button below to begin.
