Sage Software, the North American subsidiary of The Sage Group plc, announced today that it has acquired the Corum Mobile Division of Corum Corporation, a privately-held software consulting and development company based in Concord, ON, Canada that specializes in mobile customer relationship management (CRM) technology. The acquisition was completed through Sage Software's Canadian subsidiary, Sage Software Canada, Ltd. The acquisition solidifies Sage Software's current and planned use of Corum's industry-leading mobile CRM technology, which is already fully integrated with and available for Sage CRM SalesLogix. This mobile access technology will eventually be made available for all Sage CRM Solutions customers around the world, including millions of Sage CRM, SageCRM.com, and ACT! by Sage clients. The Corum Mobile Platform provides the infrastructure and functionality needed to design, build, deploy and manage scalable mobile applications that include mobile sales and field service automation.

"The Corum acquisition strengthens our CRM strategy because it allows Sage to broaden its CRM mobility solutions with a unified technology," said Dave Batt, senior vice president and general manager of Global CRM for the Sage Group plc. "Sage CRM SalesLogix clients are already benefiting from Corum mobile access technology through a previously existing partnership. Recent research confirms mobile CRM technology is becoming increasingly important to our customers, and this acquisition strongly supports our desire to further address that need on a global basis, across our entire Sage CRM Solutions portfolio."
