As an Act! user, you know the value of a great CRM. But did you know that Act! Premium products also include integrated email marketing? Do you send your customers contract renewals, appointment reminders, quotes, or newsletters? With Act! Marketing Automation, you can automate those communications right from Act! and directly from your database. You will no longer need to use a 3rd party email marketing product, such as Constant Contact or Mail Chimp, because Act! Premium has it built in.
No matter which Act! CRM system is selected, if you have a version of Act! Pro, Swiftpage Act!, Act! Premium or Act! Premium for Workgroups your data should smoothly upgrade.
