Sage CRM Solutions, a division of Sage Group has unveiled its global CRM strategy, a plan to address distinct business requirements, create interoperability, apply open Web standards to enable a connected front and back office, and incorporate emerging Web 2.0 technologies.

Sage CRM Solutions 2010 will guide development of the Sage CRM Solutions portfolio, including ACT!, SageCRM, and SalesLogix. The strategy targets small and midsize businesses and divisions of larger companies. It includes new products to be rolled out later this year, as well as other developments that will continue through 2010.
