Welcome to Sage’s fiscal
2010. As you know, FY 2009 was a year of incredible change and
transformation. As we begin the journey into FY 2010, I want to take a
moment to share with you some of the exciting initiatives we have planned for
our customers and business partner community this year.
First of all, given the
dynamics of the market in FY 2009, I am compelled to introduce our Back
to Basics sales initiative. TheBack to Basics initiative will feature
aggressive customer and partner promotions, regional road shows, sales
seminars, and executive engagement across all of North
introduced our no interest flexible Easy Pay payment
program. The plan allows customers to purchase Sage software with a
minimal down payment and then make quarterly payments over a 3 year period. The
program has been a big success for both our customers and our business
In addition, we are
pleased to announce the launch of our competitive
replacement campaign, otherwise known as the Sage CRM Solutions
Rescue Program. This aggressive program is designed to entice prospective
customers considering a switch from their existing CRM to a Sage CRM solution.
The offer will include the Easy Pay Option and deep discounting on license,
maintenance and support, as well as a rebate to help subsidize the migration.
The rebate dollars will be paid directly to an authorized business partner to
assist in the conversion.
Next, the CRM team is
pleased to announce our Welcome Back to
Sage campaign that includes an assertive effort to win back Sage CRM
solutions customers who have discontinued their maintenance and support. The
program includes a minimal reinstatement fee, multiple-year discounts on
maintenance and support, as well as rebates paid to our authorized business
partners to help customers upgrade to the current version.
And lastly, the SalesLogix Cloud
Initiative will define Sage’s CRM offerings for years to come. Although the
SalesLogix Cloud offering is not planned for rollout until summer of 2010, we
hope you will participate in the launch activities leading up to the actual
