Act! Pro is an off-the-shelf contact management for up to 5 users*. The cheapest of the Act! offerings allows you to purchase your licence outright. You can use the software as long as it runs on your Windows machine, and support is optional. The abundance of default fields i.e. company, name, address, I/D Status and referred by etc. will hold most of your important company and contact data, but you can easily create and position additional fields to ensure you can store any extra data against company, contact or opportunity records. While mainly used stand-alone by individuals or users on a small network, Act! Pro also allows the creation of remote databases that can synchronise with the main database if you (or other users) need to work away from the office. Act! Pro integrates with Microsoft Office (email and calendar sync) and Gmail. In-built e-marketing allows you to email up to 500 contacts on the free service level. If you would like to access your Act! Pro data from a mobile device while you're out and about, you can do so using Handheld Contact.*Depending on your version of Act! Pro and when you originally purchased the licence, you might still be able to add up to 10 users on the licence - please contact us to enquire.
