About Company Maker for ACT CRM

Since ACT! 2005 when company records were introduced, you can organize your contacts by the company the work for. When you create a company record, you can select contacts that you want linked to that company. Also if you add a contact, you can tell ACT! to create a company from that contact record. This is a great feature but can be time consuming if you have a lot of companies to create or contacts to link.

This is where Company Maker is a great tool. When you need to create multiple company records and link the associated contact records, Company Maker can complete the task in a couple of clicks. Also very handy when you are doing data imports, Excel imports, Outlook imports, etc..

Features

  • Run the utility for all contacts or a lookup of contact records
  • Link a contacts to existing company records
  • Create a company records they don’t exist and then link the contacts
  • About Field Calculator for ACT CRM

    Produced by The New Hampton Group, this utility is a full-feature “calculator” that uses numeric constants and the contents of fields from ACT! records to perform simple or complex calculations, and save the results into an ACT! field.

    Field Calculator can reference fields on the current Contact record, the current Company record, the Group current record, and the current Opportunity record. Any combination of fields can be used, along with static numbers to perform mathematical functions:

  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Exponentiation, Trig Functions and more
  • Use the intuitive wizard interface to define any number of triggers to activate Field Calculator. Put a trigger on a field activity (enter, change, leave), toolbar icon, menu item or other ACT! events. Triggers can operate on the current record (contact, company, group, opportunity), or current lookup (of contacts, companies, groups, opportunities).

    ACT CRM Purchased by Swiftpage – a 90 Day Review

    Back in mid-February we received the exciting announcement of ‘ACT CRM Purchased by Swiftpage!’, Sage had entered into and agreement to sell ACT! and SalesLogix to Swiftpage. As the news spread, customers have asked for our thoughts on the ownership change, if this will affect them and the future of ACT!. Over the last few months we have seen many changes and the positive impact Swiftpage has had.

    We are avid Swiftpage fans, having used their email marketing services for several years prior to Sage implementing the e-marketing platform into the ACT CRM products. We’ve known Swiftpage’s Founder Bob Ogdon for nearly a decade, building a successful company that offers innovative and quality products and always have been huge supporters of ACT!. So with the acquisition completed on March 20th and Swiftpage as the new owners of ACT! – the product could not be in better hands.

    April and May have been a transition period with Swiftpage taking on an in-depth analysis of the ACT! operations, determining what is working well and what areas need improvement. We participated in several meetings with Swiftpage Executives, they understand that we are the eyes and ears for our customers and welcomed our input and ideas. They brings a corporate culture of excitement and energy to ACT!, a stark contrast to the large bureaucracy at Sage.

    ACT CRM and Swiftpage EMarketing Logos
