Archive for March 2012
In June 2012, Sage will be changing their upgrade policy for their product lines. For us, what this means, is our customers running versions of ACT prior to 2009 need to upgrade before June to realize better upgrade pricing. After June, it could run about $200 more per seat for new licenses. If you are running a version of ACT that is older than 2010, you may want to reach out to your favorite consultant (or us, we won’t mind) to upgrade to the newest version, 2012.
Why would you want to upgrade? Well, for one, support for Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 for starters. The newer versions have improved performance, bug fixes, better memory management (especially with 2012 and SQL 2008). There is true Outlook integration, Gmail integration, automated Smart Tasks, Universal search which searches even attachments (my personal favorite), over 35 custom reports, and an improved user interface. All in all, there are a lot of reasons to upgrade, especially if you are on versions earlier than 2005. It’s not your father’s ACT anymore.
Our offices are offering demos of the product for our customers. And you can go to ACT.com for demos there as well. We are offering our Platinum reseller pricing to help make the transition a little less painful on the pocketbook.
