Sage CRM v7.1 SP2 Feature Overview

Some really nice improvements in Sage CRM SP2:

With Sage CRM v7.1 Service Pack 2 (SP2) fully tested and ready to go, we’re proud to announce that the theme of this release is Cross Browser Compatibility. We have been aware for some time that Cross Browser compatibility is a major customer requirement. This is even reflected on our ideas hub – you’ll see it’s one of the top requested features. In an effort to deliver Cross Browser Compatibility to you as soon as possible, we have included it in the upcoming service pack rather than asking you to wait until our end of year release.

Cross Browser Compatibility – what are the end user browser options in SP2?

The user experience and functionality throughout the Main Menu is consistent across Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer (IE).

End User Supported Browsers in Sage CRM v7.1 SP2
IE – versions 7, 8 and 9 (as per Sage CRM v7.1 SP1)
Safari – latest version Safari browser on OSX (Apple MAC). Note that the Tablet theme is recommended for use with iPad – IOS is not in scope)

Sage CRM 7.1 SP2 released

Just received in from the Sage CRM team over at The Sage CRM Blog:

We’re delighted to announce the release of Sage CRM v7.1 Service Pack 2 (SP2). The theme of this release is cross browser compatibility which means you can now access Sage CRM in IE, Safari, Chrome and Firefox. This has been a major customer requirement for some time and we’re excited to be able to bring it to you in this release.

Excited to finally see cross-browser support! Seriously, who still uses Internet Explorer? Word on the street though is that if your CRM is installed with Accpac integration, you need to give this Service Pack a miss until the go-ahead has been received from the development team.
