That's probably why Craig Downing, ACCPAC vp of product management, says to start small with a CRM implementation. Pick portions that will demonstrate ROI within two months. This approach is less risky and will lead to faster adoption of the system. Actually, this is good advice for any project.

Craig also made an interesting comment on the difference between Australia and the US with respect to CRM sales. He finds US prospects are typically upgrading from a low-end CRM solution, while Australians are considering CRM for the first time. It seems marketing is much more aggressive in the US than it is in Australia.
As you probably know, ACCPAC was purchased by Sage in 2004. Best already had two CRM systems before the acquisition - ACT for smaller companies and SalesLogix for mid-sized companies. The acquisition of ACCPAC included Sage ACCPAC CRM, which is also targeted to the mid-market. According to Craig, SalesLogix is designed for companies with more complex needs that require a customized solution, whereas Sage ACCPAC CRM is designed for companies whose needs can be addressed with an off-the-shelf package.
