Software Support Sheet
No installation is required on the PC, laptop, or mobile device for core CRM functions, as the Web browser is usually pre-installed. Some features of CRM, such as Document
Drop, Reporting, and Classic Outlook Integration may require the installation of plug-ins and external applications. These are outlined below. As the application uses a Web
browser, the client hardware specification is determined by the minimum Web browser requirements for the client operating system.
Browsers
Document Plug-in
All areas of Sage CRM are fully supported in
Internet Explorer (8, 9, and 10 in compatibility
mode).
The Main Menu area of Sage CRM is compatible
with Apple Safari 5 on OSX, Google Chrome (latest
version), and Mozilla Firefox (latest version).
Required for the Document Drop functionality and to
edit MS Word merge templates and documents.
Only available when working with CRM in Internet
Explorer. Users must be administrators or power
users of their machine to install the plug-in.
There are some areas of the product which are
supported in IE only. These include: the
Administration menu; Classic Dashboard; Classic
Outlook Integration; Lite Outlook Plug-in (Cloud).
Microsoft Outlook Plug-ins
MS Outlook plug-ins available in the Cloud:
•
•
Lite Outlook Plug-in – for Essentials and
Professional Editions
Outlook Plug-in for Classic Outlook
Integration – Professional Edition only
They are compatible with MS Outlook 2007 or 2010.
Both require users to be administrators or power
users of their machine and the .NET Framework to
be on the client. This is checked for during the
install process and installed if not present.
Microsoft Office applications
The data upload feature accepts files in *.XLS or
*.XLSX format, created by Microsoft Office Excel
2007 or 2010. Data Upload also accepts *.CSV files.
You can save mail merge templates that you create
in Microsoft Word in *.DOC, *.DOCX, *.HTM, and
*.HTML formats. Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010, or
another program that can open *.DOC, and *.DOCX
files, must be installed in order to view merged
documents.
