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.

E-marketing Solution For Sage ACT! Users

Many ACT! users don’t realize that Sage offers a solution for e-marketing. Not only is Sage E-marketing more cost effective by charging for e-mail sends per day rather than the total number of contacts in your list, but will save you time with integrated features for your ACT! database. The powerful features of Sage E-marketing are:

E-Mail – Send e-mail campaigns directly from your database to contacts, lookups, groups and companies – no managing a separate database with an outside company. You can easily design branded messages or import and edit existing templates using a simple online editor. When you send your e-mail blast with Sage E-marketing you can track who opened, clicked a link, bounced, suppressed (opted-out) and the results are downloaded directly to your database and is searchable and viewable on the Marketing Results tab for your contacts. You can also view online graphical and detailed reports about each send.

Drip Marketing - Take your e-marketing to the next level with Drip Marketing that gives you the ability to create multi-sequence campaigns of messages that are automatically delivered to your ACT! contacts. Drip Marketing uses intelligent technology to send messages to contacts based on their interactions with previous messages and/or based on field content in your ACT! database.

Surveys - Unlike other e-marketing services who charge an additional fee for the survey feature, Sage E-marketing offers Survey and Web Form capabilities with each service level. By using Surveys you can have your contacts sign up for your e-newsletter, register for an event, or provide their contact information and since the survey feature is integrated with your database, you can download your contact responses with the click of the mouse.
