SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 25, 2006 -- Sage Software today announced that Sage CRM SalesLogix has been recognized by VARBusiness magazine for outstanding achievement in technology innovation and was named a winner in the enterprise software category of the publication's Tech Innovators award competition. Sage CRM SalesLogix was among nearly 700 entries submitted in 14 technology categories. VARBusiness magazine, which covers the business of technology integration, honored Sage Software at an awards ceremony held earlier this week in Huntington Beach, California.

"The constant feedback we seek from our business partners and customers to drive continuous Sage CRM SalesLogix enhancement continues to pay dividends," said Elvin Monteleone, senior vice president and general manager for Sage Software Mid-Market CRM. "We strive to develop products that help our partners differentiate their value-added services and provide customers with significant business performance improvements.
