The Go2Group , which sells Software Production Line Automation, has announced the availability of Go2Group Free CRM Plugin, a free version of its CRM Plugin providing integration between Atlassian JIRA and SugarCRM (News - Alert) or Salesforce.
The Go2Group Free CRM Plugin is a basic version of the Go2Group CRM Plugin - both products allow sales, support, and development teams to remain in sync without the need to consolidate individual systems.
Basically it lets users connect a project in Atlassian JIRA to a SugarCRM bug or a Salesforce case, keeping customer information in sync. Providing a syncing mechanism between different teams is seen by Go2Group officials as a benefit that helps "keep customer management processes flowing by providing these users with information."
Brett Taylor, CEO of Go2Group, said the introduction of a basic version of the Go2Group CRM Plugin is for customers "interested in strengthening the collaboration between teams using different systems for different needs... while basic, the Go2Group Free CRM Plugin provides the power for a Salesforce user to coordinate customer activities with their JIRA counterparts.”
The Go2Group Free CRM Plugin is compatible with Atlassian JIRA, Professional and Enterprise Editions: v3.12 and later, SugarCRM v5.0 and later and Salesforce, Professional, Enterprise, and Unlimited Editions.

The extension can be ordered and downloaded from VivendoConnect.com.
