Solutions From Microsoft, Oracle, RightNow, And Salesforce.com Lead The Way
August 26, 2008
Why Read This Report
In Forrester's 517-criteria evaluation of midmarket customer relationship management (CRM) solutions, we found that Oracle's Siebel CRM Professional Edition and CRM On Demand products, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, RightNow CRM, and salesforce.com's salesforce led the pack. They distanced themselves from the competition with strong sales force automation and usability capabilities. Right behind the Leaders is a crowded group of Strong Performers including software-as-a-service (SaaS) players like Entellium and NetSuite; versatile deployment solutions like SageCRM, Selligent X@, and Sugar Enterprise; and traditional, on-premise solutions like Maximizer CRM, CDC Software's Pivotal CRM, Consona CRM's Onyx CRM, and Sage SalesLogix. Finally, closing out the group as a Contender is FrontRange Solutions' GoldMine Enterprise Edition — a longstanding CRM solution with a significant customer and user base.
