SUGARCON 2012 – SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 24, 2012 – LucidWorks [formerly Lucid Imagination], the commercial company for Apache Lucene/Solr enterprise search technology, today announced new technology integration with SugarCRM, the world’s fastest-growing customer relationship management (CRM) company, and LucidWorks. The integration allows SugarCRM customers to gain all of the benefits of search and discovery using the world’s best known open source search solution Apache Lucene/Solr right inside their software. The announcement was made at SugarCRM’s 6th annual SugarCon event, an annual customer, user and partner conference being held April 23-26, 2012 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California.

The integration allows faceted, navigational search to improve the overall search experience and to let salespeople and management find what they need. In addition, LucidWorks brings better security, relevancy, management capabilities, scalability, and high availability through Lucene/Solr than traditional SQL-based search products.

“We are very pleased that SugarCRM has chosen LucidWorks as a way to bring open enterprise search to its open platform CRM product suite,” said Paul Doscher, CEO, LucidWorks. “By connecting with LucidWorks, SugarCRM is improving its customers’ search experience by delivering the search power behind many of the world’s largest e-commerce sites and enterprises with open platform Apache Lucene/Solr.”

Clint Oram, CTO, vice president of product strategy and co-founder of SugarCRM. “The integration between LucidWorks and SugarCRM will enable users to work smarter and faster, and we are looking forward to seeing our customers experience positive results.”
