Tyneside-based Sage Business Partner TSG has become the first reseller to receive Sage's new CRM Developer Accreditation, which was launched in January.
The idea behind the certification is to give developers with a Professional Level subscription the opportunity to demonstrate value add around customised CRM implementations based on Sage.
In TSG's case, this has included CRM programs covering business areas as diverse as club membership or claims management.
In a blog post on TSG's website, CRM customer services director Paul Ince said the accreditation would help the firm "meet customer needs and requirements more accurately and efficiently".
"It also provides credibility to our customers and prospects. We're in a position, thanks to our knowledge of the Sage CRM product and the expertise of our development team, to be able to adapt industry standard applications and tailor them to the specific needs of our customers," he explained.
