SalesForce & SugarCRM both are the market leaders in the field of CRM (Customer Relationship Management)
based Companies.They both are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and both are alternatives to traditional, Microsoft-based technologies. However, sugar originated with Lamp (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) stacks, whereas SalesForce is mainly through Java/Oracle.

Let’s have a look at SugarCRM v/s SalesForce's comparative features-
With SugarCRM, you can drag and drop modules around to personalize them and re-size any available column. With Salesforce, modules are managed from behind the scenes by the administrative board. SugarCRM is open-source, for example, any designer is having access to the source code sugar is designed for (thus they can develop the source code).
Developers can make their own integration in PHP with Sugar (the web’s most-taught language). Meanwhile, although SalesForce can be just as personalized, it is not open-source and is written in APEX (an exclusive language). This means that a more compact team of designers can personalize Salesforce (only those that know APEX), making a personalized deployment much more cost-effective in SugarCRM. Developing APIs in Salesforce can only be done within the factors of their closed-source language.
Use of Mobile App–
Salesforce acts a bit better than SugarCRM in their mobile editions, which you realized for a more expensive. The Sugar’s mobile client is not as good as Salesforce, but because it is light and portable (written in PHP), it can be used on any mobile phone and it is completely free. We’re still going to give Salesforce the advantage of mobile customers, but at an extremely high cost.
SugarCRM v/s. Salesforce Pricing-
SugarCRM Professional Edition = $40/user/month
Salesforce Professional Edition = $75/user/month
SugarCRM Enterprise Edition = $65/user/month
Salesforce Lightning Enterprise Edition = $150/user/month
SugarCRM Ultimate Edition = $150/user/month
Salesforce Lightning Unlimited Edition = $300/user/month
Use of Social CRM–
One of the new ways that business is enhancing is through the use of Social media. SugarCRM combines with Citrix, Go To Meeting for online conference meetings, and combines with Twitter, Google, Microsoft, and Lotus. It is made to take content published to several Social media sites and move that information to SugarCRM.
SalesForce also can connect to social media & it has inbuilt features to connect to Google Apps or connecting users with their LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter & Google and managing their account contacts. SalesForce also has “chatter” which is used to implement a company work culture and manage your feeds about important notification of sensitive data. Anything published on Chatter can be seen by others internally, but it is not open to the public. It is used to share files, give details about an upcoming meeting, or even talk about a big sale. Like Facebook or myspace, you have private information and wall posts, computer file sharing, and field activities.
SugarCRM and SalesForce are both outstanding options for CRM. It is depending on business needs, Every business has different-different needs & according to that need a businessman must understand which is the best CRM option for them.
