Continuing its momentum and strong foothold in the small and medium business (SMB) market, Maximizer Software has announced the successful adoption of Maximizer CRM 10. In its first month of general availability, November 2007, more than 690 leading organisations bought or upgraded a total of more than 12 500 seats of Maximizer CRM 10.

"Our mission is to provide the very best CRM software and services that ultimately help SMBs grow," says John Caputo, president of Maximizer Software. "Our success with Maximizer CRM 10 is a direct reflection of our solid leadership and commitment to developing products that are simple, accessible and provide the best value for our customers."
Market demand from existing and new customers was largely based on the introduction of enterprise-level features such as mobile CRM access, increased business intelligence, and on-demand sales and professional coaching.
“Locally, South African companies are adopting Maximizer CRM because of its legendary ease-of-use, affordability, and the comfort of knowing that it has the pedigree of a stable innovative organisation of Maximizer Software behind it that has been dedicated to CRM solutions for over 20 years. This, together with Camsoft’s 12 years of CRM experience, Authorised Business Partner of Maximizer in SA, helped Camsoft achieve Maximizer Software’s 2007 award for the most new licences sold as well as the Africa Business Partner of the year award,” comments Mark Annett, national manager at Camsoft Solutions.
Having sold more than 1-million licenses, the company developed Maximizer CRM 10 to reflect the growing sophistication of SMBs – competing globally and with large enterprises.
