It is a common scenario – you have hours to kill on a cross-country flight. it is the perfect time to update and view some iof your most pressing opportunities, contacts and accounts in your CRM system. There’s just one problem – the plane has no wifi, and you are using an on-demand version of SugarCRM.

The issue of excellent, customized mobile and offline access has been solved by SugarCRM partner RhoLogic (a division of Logic Appeal) has developed its new RhoLogic Mobile for Sugar – a cross-platform mobile CRM extension that offers users offline access to their SugarCRM data.

The RhoLogic product works in a cloud-based manner. This means that users do not need to worry about running the technology on any hardware apart from the devices themselves. For now, RhoLogic for Sugar is available at the AppStore for iPhones and at the Android Apps Marketplace. Again, this is a cross platform tool – so firms do not have to decide on only one device for all users in order to power a company-wide mobile CRM strategy.

The offline access through the Sync server is really cool. It uses a lite local database to maintain a large data set on the use’s’ device – but does not take forever to load up. Not yet enjoying the power of Sugar 6?  That’s OK – as the RhoLogic for Sugar works with Sugar 5.5 as well.

To boot, users of Sugar’s existing Mobile Studio capabilities to streamline or customize mobile views into Sugar already know how to use RhoLogic for Sugar. The tool uses the same interface – and all Mobile Studio commands are replicated through RhoLogic – so users can quickly, easily and instantly crate and deploy mobile customizations to their Sugar deployment.

The product is available today – check out the RhoLogic web site for more info.
