VAR services with cloud vendors: Key considerations
By Brian Chee and Curtis Franklin Jr., December 15, 2010

One solution that we keep hearing about from different companies is about reducing the total seat costs by using for the front-line salespeople, but something like SugarCRM for the call centers.

By George Crump, February 26, 2009
