Top 7 Benefits of Act Subscription

Affordable and flexible payment options

Act! subscription offers flexible payment options that include monthly and annual subscriptions or the ability to purchase the software. Replacing a large upfront capital investment with manageable payments, this is ideal for businesses looking to improve their cash flow management.

Automatic access to new releases

Act subscription entitles you to automatically receive new releases and product updates as they become available.  This includes any performance improvements, usability enhancements and defect fixes, meaning your Act! experience will always remain easy and problem free.

Support included in the price

With technical support included at no extra charge throughout your subscription period you can get the help you need to quickly resolve technical issues and keep your business running error free… smooth sailing!

Anywhere, anytime access

A subscription to Act Premium Cloud enables anytime and anywhere access to your data from your computer, tablet or smartphone via a secure cloud connection —no additional hardware required. Check out our handy cloud vs on premise software comparison.

Integrations with hundreds of business tools and apps

Imagine if the tools you use every day integrated to your contact management system… This is now a reality with a new Act Connect platform allowing seamless integration with the applications you use every day, including your survey tools, accounting software and payment solutions. This will remove the need to rekey information in separate systems, enriching your data for greater insight.

Compatibility updates as they are released

Now 64-bit compatible, Act allows you to work with the Microsoft Office products you rely on every day, including Windows 10 and Office 2016, as well as Internet Explorer 11 and Google Chrome. If a new operating system is released, with your subscription you’ll get an update which ensures you will have now no compatibility issues.

E-marketing capabilities at no extra charge

With Act E-marketing you can build multi-step automated email campaigns and intelligently analyse results to measure the effectiveness of your emails and better understand your recipients – so you can get the right message to the right people at the right time.

What if I’m using a recent version of Act?

If you’re on Act v17 or v18 you can save up to 15% when you upgrade to a subscription plan and benefit from reduced day rates on training to ensure you get the most out of your Act investment.
