CRM on the Go
With the recent release of SugarCRM Mobile 2.5, this is a great time to review the basic and advanced features of the mobile application. Maybe you are currently using Sugar Desktop and are interested in the mobile app. Or maybe your organization is new to CRM but needs a solution for field reps. Either way, here is what we consider the best features of the Sugar Mobile App.
Full Access From the Field
Sugar’s Mobile App doesn’t limit your capabilities just because you are accessing your CRM from a different type of device. Even from your cell phone or tablet, you can view, edit, and ceate records within any Module. Just like in the Desktop version, you can access Dashlets and Dashboards, as well as view your Activity Stream.

Navigation View to Access Modules and Dashboards
Viewing a Report in a Dashlet
Because SugarCRM Mobile is a native mobile application, users can seamlessly access otherphone applications from the app. Reps can make calls, send emails or texts, and get directions all with the click of a button. One great example of this functionality is making a call. From a contact record, you can click-to-call and then the app will automatically prompt you to log the call and enter notes.
Consistent User Experience
The look and feel between the desktop version and the mobile app were designed to be very similar. A user can go back and forth between Desktop and Mobile without disruption. And because they operate very similarly, the learning curve for the Mobile app is very small.
Offline access empowers reps to access the CRM anytime and anyplace. Even if they are travelling to an offsite location, out of reach of cell tower service or internet connection, they can still access CRM data and make changes to records. When they reconnect to service, changes will be automatically be reflected in the desktop CRM.
Admins can select which modules are available within the Mobile App for users. Since field reps will only have access to what they need, they can quickly and easily enter data without having to skim through unnecessary modules and dashboards.
