Sage Software announced a deal to acquire the mobile division of Corum Corp., a Concord, Ontario-based business partner that specializes in customer relationship management.

Terms of the deal, completed through Sage's Canadian subsidiary, weren't disclosed.

Sage said in a statement that Corum's mobile CRM technology is integrated with Sage CRM SalesLogix and will be available for all Sage CRM, SageCRM.com and ACT! Customers.

A privately-held software consulting and development firm, Corum has been developing add-on solutions for Sage CRM SalesLogix since 1997. Corum's mobile platform allows enables customers to design, build, deploy and manage mobile applications, including sales force automation. It supports RIM BlackBerry, Microsoft Windows Mobile Platform and Palm devices that use Windows mobile.

The Corum deal follows Salesforce.com's $15 million purchase of Sendia's mobile CRM platform last spring and SAP's acquisition of Praxis Software Solutions, which allowed the company to provide Web-based CRM capabilities for Business One.
