Act Subscription – CRM Solutions Perfect for Your Business

Act Subscription CRM SuiteAct! is now offering a new subscription model as way of subscribing to Act! CRM for your business. While you can still purchase licenses (now called perpetual license ownership), now you have an option of Act Subscription for the Premium product as an alternate way to gain access to the Act! Premium software at a lower startup cost. Below lists the Act! Solutions to help you find the perfect one for your business and each solution includes Act! Emarketing Basic Account.

Act! Premium Perpetual is license ownership and now includes the 1st year of software updates and Act! Technical Support. Previously you had to participate in Act!’s Business Care Plans as a separate option with your license purchase – now these services are bundled together in the price of the license. Premium Perpetual licenses start at $500 per user ($380 for Qualified Loyalty Upgrades) with discounts on multi-user (5, 20, 50 & 100) level purchase. After the first year you will have the option to continue your maintenance and support for another year, Act Subscription at $250 per user ($190 for Loyalty Upgrades) with discounts on multi-user (5, 20, 50 & 100) level renewal. This Act! subscription renewal is similar to what was formerly known as Silver and Gold Business Care Annual Plans. If you opt to not renew your maintenance and support services you will still have access to your program with a perpetual license for the lasted version released prior to your term expiration.

Act! Premium Subscription does not include license ownership but includes access to the software program with software updates and Act! Technical Support for the term of your subscription. You can subscribe monthly or annually, the annual Act Subscription will include 2 months free when you purchase 10 months. Per User cost for the Act Subscription is $25 per month ($19 for Qualified Loyalty Upgrades) or $250 per year ($190 for Qualified Loyalty Upgrades. Act Subscription will have multi-user (5, 20, 50 & 100) level discounts. Canceling your Act Subscription will discontinue your access to the program at the end of your subscription term.

Premium Cloud (formerly known as Act! Hosted) Act! handles the hosting for you at a newly reduced per user cost of $35 per month or $350 per year with multi-user (5, 20, 50 & 100) level discounts. With Act! Premium Cloud, you still own your data and have access to a copy of your database at any time. Plus, your Premium Cloud subscription gives you a direct line to Act! Technical Support.

Act Pro v17 Discontinued… NOT!

Act Pro v17Last month Act! made changes to the distribution of their products and introduced an additional subscription model for their Premium product line. These changes have led to rumors in the marketplace and one of them is that Act! is discontinuing the Act Pro v17 product line. This is just not true.

Act! has chosen to no longer offer the Pro product on their website or direct and instead is focusing on the Premium and Cloud product lines. But the Act Pro v17 product is still being sold by Act! through their distribution channels. As the #1 Act! Diamond Partner in the United States, we are a top distributor of Act! software including the Pro product line and you can continue to purchase Act Pro v17 licenses through us.

In fact now is a great time to purchase the Pro product as Act Pro v17 is promotionally priced at $199.99 for a New License and $149.99 for an Upgrade License. Keep in mind that buying Act! Pro is not a subscription service and you own the license. You can use your Act Pro licensed product for as long as you want, your Act Pro v17 software will not expire.

While Act! has discontinued Business Care (the former Maintenance and Support options) for the Pro product line they offer a 30 Day Act! Technical Support Plan. Act! v17 Pro is eligible for Act! Technical Support until 11/30/2017 so rest assured if purchasing Act! v17 Pro today that it is a supported product. There has NOT been any announcement whatsoever of the Pro product being discontinued.
