Top Hints about SugarCRM’s Hint!

The release of SugarCRM’s Hint plugin has created a lot of disruption within the CRM marketplace, and is now available in the UK. Lets see what all the fuss is about!

What is Hint?
SugarCRM Hint is the flagship product of Sugar’s new Relationship Intelligence efforts. It streamlines the time-consuming process of collating customer information by pulling their full social and corporate profiles from over 70 data sources. Hint works by using a customers name and email ID to automatically search the internet for the most recent information available, relating to personal and company profiles. With a few simple clicks, a sometimes lengthy and un-fruitful process can be automatically completed in mere seconds. The wide range of information is immediately inputted into the correct field of the customer record.
