Hindsight being 20/20, TeleMagic has proved to have been years ahead of its time.  This technology has served us well for 20 years. Many current TeleMagic users are expanding and new TM5 applications are being deployed even 2 years after Sage gave up supporting the application.  If the TeleMagic DOS version is any indication, these applications will live on for the foreseeable life of the Windows 2003/XP/2K/NT/98 platforms.  Now with TeleMagic Online, Go Global and other technologies there are even more new opportunities.

For TeleMagic users, version 5 is the end of the Windows line. Or is it? Add Hotbuttons or WinBatch and create your own version 6. TeleMagic is dead; long live the TeleMagic "Money Machine" applications we have created and the new ones we have yet to invent.

Good points, Dean. SageCRM is a little more difficult to customize than TM;

easier than SalesLogix and way more capable than MS-CRM or

Because it's web-based you can go "out of the box" by using ASP, but that's

just another language to learn if your client needs extreme customization.

One of the really good selling tools is that a prospect can get a 30-day

free trial of the hosted (read: "out of the box version," called, then pay only $69/month/user to continue, with 50% of their

payments credited toward purchase of the in-house version, which you can

then customize for them. Pricing is based on the accounting/SalesLogix

model -- buy the master module then buy licenses for each user. SageCRM

comes in two flavors they call 100 and 200. 100 supports up to 30 users, is

$1,495 for the master module plus $595/user. 200 is for more than 31 users,

has more features and is priced at $4,995/master plus $795/user. If you

want to take a look and test drive of the hosted version, go to my website

and click on the "Free 30-day trial of" box.

For most TM clients, there still is no other product that will do so much,

so easily, and so inexpensively.

I worked for a guy for three months who is an authorized SageCRM dealer.

None of my TeleMagic clients could be converted to SageCRM due to the amount

of customization we do with TeleMagic and the few clients who use TeleMagic

in a 'basic' sense saw SageCRM as too much and too expensive.

From the two installations that I did, it went pretty well. However I was very

disappointed with the lack of a good screen designer and easy customization

that we all take for granted with TeleMagic. Something very basic like

automaticly separating the area code from the phone number became a 4 hour

task and it still didn't work that well.

For companies who are looking at Sales Logix or, then SageCRM is a great package. Client that use TeleMagic and have customized Telemagic to fit their needs, SageCRM most likely will not work for them unless they want to spend A LOT of money in programming costs.

would be happy to either source it for you, or work as a sub-contractor if
