Sage has launched a hosted version of its CRM package. Based on the company's Mid-Market Edition, SageCRM will cost 50 per month and is available in a number of versions.

Uniquely, the hosted version is supported by the large network of local partners in the UK that Sage has built up, while other hosted systems such as the one supplied by Salesforce.com have no such network.
Richard Bee, director of CRM for Sage UK, claims that many companies, including small businesses, are suited to a hosted CRM solution. SageCRM is available from Tuesday.
