SugarCRM for Customer Support Automation

Acquiring new customers is much more expensive than selling to existing ones. With Sugar customer support, companies have the confidence that customer cases will be handled quickly and effectively. Sugar customer support centralizes customer service requests across channels to allow companies to manage inbound emails, diagnose bugs, share knowledge, and resolve customer issues. In addition, companies can defray customer support costs with the Customer Self-Service Portal.
