Vtiger launches Vtiger CRM 7 Community Edition, a vastly improved version of its free open source CRM software, providing businesses, developers, and consultants with a strong incentive to leverage the only release by an open source CRM vendor in recent memory.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) - Vtiger today announced the launch of Vtiger CRM 7 Community Edition, a major revision of its open source customer relationship management software. The revised software sports a modernized and easy to use interface to complement a range of new features, which combined should increase the value that customer facing teams obtain from the free software.
The release of Vtiger CRM 7 solidifies Vtiger’s position of leadership in the open source CRM space at a time when all other open source CRM vendors have either ceased development of their community editions, or haven’t released a new revision in several years. The resultant expected consolidation of market share around Vtiger should make it easier for developers, consultants, and businesses that were previously on the fence about choosing to adopt an open source CRM solution, to do so with Vtiger.
“With Vtiger 7, our primary objective was to make it easy to use,” said Sreenivas Kanumuru, CEO of Vtiger. “We achieved that through new workspaces for different roles, a new navigation system, redesigned CRM records that surface key information, and new collaboration tools.” Business users can read about all of the improvements on the Vtiger 7 launch blog or can try the new release through Vtiger’s live hosted demo
For developers that build integrations or extensions for Vtiger CRM, the release brings new marketshare to the Vtiger ecosystem which could serve as a boon to extension installs. To help developers market their extensions to users, Vtiger CRM 7 includes a built-in extension marketplace that lets CRM administrators browse and install extensions from third party developers. The store also handles billing and remittance of payments to developers. Developers can learn about developing and listing extensions in Vtiger at their developer documentation website.
For technology and business consultants that help businesses discover, deploy, and train staff on how to use CRM solutions, this new release arms them with a powerful new tool that is likely to be better received and supported than older CRM solutions available on the market. While it’s completely unnecessary for consultants to affiliate themselves with Vtiger when leveraging the fully open source solution, partnership options are available for those that seek a more formalized relationship - and can be found on Vtiger’s partner page.
Vtiger was founded in 2004. Sales, marketing, and customer service teams in more than 120 countries worldwide use its flagship product, Vtiger CRM, daily to improve sales and customer happiness. With more than 4 Million downloads, Vtiger CRM is the #1 open source CRM. Vtiger also offers a cloud based version of Vtiger CRM with premium features.
