add Sugar CRM integration
I NEED this so much, not just for my own purposes but as I also am a CRM Consultant / Integrator for small businesses. I could easily provide a lot more customers for Xero if you can manage to get this done :)
Our friends at CRM Online have developed a Xero certified SugarCRM Connector for Xero: http://www.crmonline.com.au/go/learn-more/sugarcrm-xero/
I will keep this suggestion open though, as our API is open to others to build connectors to.
We have completed the SugarCRM connector for Xero along with the related documentation and testing. You can view information on the connector at:
In addition, the installation guide is at:
Our connector creates sales and purchases modules within SugarCRM and creates these as subpanels for accounts, contacts, cases, projects and opportunities.
So, you can simply create a sale or purchase directly against an account or opportunity and this will create the corresponding invoice in Xero as well as push the client details into the accounting package.
In addition, it synchronizes payment status back to the accounting package so that you can report on this and easily view status of invoices within the CRM. In addition, this also provides the ability for people to generate payment of commissions from this payment data - i.e. you could write a wizard that generates payments to a sales consultant based on client payments.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
We'll make the connector official on the Xero site + will announce it here also.

Where do we watch to see when this rolls out?
Yep - we're up and running with the connector. It's part of a project that we're rolling out this week. We should get a chance to put the documentation together and release it once we've rolled out this project.

Glenn / anyone else,
Any update on timing on this? I have a client who is hanging out for this,
Just an FYI - we're currently developing this. My company developed the connector between SugarCRM and Saasu.com and are developing the Xero integration as part of a current project. Shouldn't be too far off and we'll let people know once it's ready and all documentation is ready to go.

One of your consultants advised us fairly recently that the integration of Xero and SugarCRM was imminent, one of the key reasons we chose Xero. When will it happen?
wow still talking about this since 2008 - come on when is it going to happen?
Would like to see quotes converted into Sales Orders in Xero. All financial information from xero gets attached to accounts in Sugar (give you an overview/reports of the customers finance to sales rep).
