Integrating with SugarCRM

To integrate Spectrum Technology Platform with SugarCRM, you must install the supporting databases and dataflows on the Spectrum Technology Platform server, and deploy Spectrum on your SugarCRM. Once you do this, users of SugarCRM will have access to address validation, geocoding, and duplicate detection functionality from within SugarCRM.

Before you begin:

Entities Supported:

You can validate and geocode the addresses of the entities:
  • Accounts
  • Contacts
  • Leads

Supported SugarCRM Versions


Browse to the the folder Sugar CRM DQ Objects\sugarcrm in the Spectrum Technology Platform installation package and copy the file to any location on your SugarCRM server.

  1. If you are using Spectrum Technology Platform for address validation or geocoding, install the databases required to perform address validation and geocoding and define database resources for each database.
    Note: If you are using Spectrum Technology Platform for duplicate detection only, you can skip this step.

    You must give the database resources these names:

    Database Required Name for Database Resource
    Enterprise Geocoding - Canada Database IGEO_CAN
    Enterprise Geocoding - U.S. Database EGM_US
    Universal Addressing - Canada Database Canada
    Universal Addressing - Loqate Database Loqate
    Universal Addressing - U.S. Database UAM_US
    Note: You must install the Delivery Point Validation (DPV) data and the Residential Delivery Indicator (RDI) data in order to perform DPV and RDI processing on U.S. addresses.
  2. Import the SugarCRM module dataflows into your Spectrum Technology Platform server.
    1. On the Spectrum Technology Platform server, open this folder:
      Note: This folder is only available if you have installed the SugarCRM module.
    2. As mentioned in the table below, copy the applicable dataflow files to the import folder:
