If you've read or heard anything at all lately about TeleMagic, you'll probably now know at least three things: TeleMagic support was discontinued by the powers that be, but that has not killed it except in the minds of the competitors. There are literally hundreds of titles in the CRM, SFA, BPM market, and that there is a big difference in using software that adapts and conforms to fit your business process, VS trying to fit into someone elses CRM process. To users that have figured out what TeleMagic can do, TeleMagic is still the price performance a leader in Customizable Contact-Centric software for Enterprises and Workgroups. Best/Sage continue to sell new Licenses through the network of authorized resellers and new TeleMagic applications are being created, updated and deployed.
Throughout this site, we have attempted to provide articles and links to help you get the most out of TeleMagic. Now with TeleMagic Online, Terminal Servers, GoGlobal, Hotbuttons, Dymanic Filters and More, there are even more opportunities than ever. Business Success still in motion Telemagict still provides the best value, it has a 20 year history, and as you shall see, plenty of support options are still available. Please let us know what you have done with your TeleMagic
TeleMagic Upgrades and New Licenses are still available from Sage Best Software. Support and R&D from Best are the only things that have been discontinued. TeleMagic resellers are still supporting and developing new application based on TeleMagic's Customizable Technology.
For many applications, TeleMagic 5 still provides the best value (Bang for the Buck) for a totally customizable contact centered database. It's a totally different thing to work with software that is designed to adapt to your changing needs, vs trying to fit your process into someone elses idea of how it should work.

TeleMagic Outperforms Expectations

Although the software has evolved into a stable and robust set of rapid application development tools, looking back, the conversion from dos to windows was mismanaged from the acquisition. Sage's release of the first few versions of TeleMagic for Windows (conversion from the number one dos based system to windows, proved seriously flawed, Versions 3 and 5 were too little too late.
Now 3 years "Officially" left for dead on side of the CRM database information superhighway, (customers to be scavenged by and integrated into other Sage CRM products lines), TeleMagic applications have been quietly out living and out-performing expectations. Many of the custom business applications developed in TeleMagic have refused to die. Research and Development and Sage corporate level product support are both dead, yet independent resellers, developers and end users continue to quietly purchase new licenses and find new things that TeleMagic can do.
Many successful applications take advantage of the customizability and the original TeleMagic organizational models in outbound and inbound customer contact centered applications that still run circles around other models. Now three years after the Official sunset, Sage runs out of printed manuals. They must have printed a fairly large run and they are not likely to print any more but the point is that new licenses continute to be deployed.
The days of the boxed and bound product are over yet TeleMagic lives on in companies everywhere. A new Outlook 2003 module is about to be released by Bruce Durrant, a Canadian developer (who supplies TeleMagic with Hot Buttons Enhancement Software to the White House), with the companies blessing (they allowed him access to the source code for a tight integration), but not with any backing.
And the Sage TeleMagic saga continues. The software lives on, inspite of any efforts to convert users to other Sage titles. I personally look forwared to the release of the outlook 2003 link as this essentially brings TeleMagic up to date with all the features and security enhancements found in this corporate email standard that is supported fully by USA.NET hosted exchange services.
