Act! Cloud

Get on-demand access to your Act! data anywhere, anytime.

Our Act! Cloud solutions help to solve your IT challenges while enabling you to deliver outstanding service to your customers. There is no requirement to purchase an Act! Subscription or set up a web server…you simply pay a low monthly fee for your licence and data hosting and we do the rest.

Act! Cloud gives you the real power of Act! Premium with the additional advantages of cloud technology so that you can access your live Act! data at any time or anywhere through the Internet via a browser/phone/tablet.

Unlike any other ‘Cloud’ CRM, our Act! Cloud system also gives you access to a local copy of your database so that you can work offline (See Remote Offline Access). This is ideal if you require complete access to all Act! features and functionality and don’t want to be reliant on your Internet speed. Any changes to your offline database are synchronised to the master database on the Cloud Server.

  • Simple and fast user set-up. Your Act! software is installed on our server, so there is no end-user software installation required. Remote users always have access to the most recent product updates. With the easy-to-use Act! Windows experience, less training and support time is needed to get users up and running quickly.
  • Flexibility Scale up and down to meet your business requirements. Increase or decrease the number of users and/or data space required as you need.

  • Security for your data. Act! Premium has enhanced Security Features such as Field-level Security and the Ability to Secure Notes, History, and Opportunities en Masse. Additionally, feel secure in the knowledge that your critical customer data is stored on highly secure servers, maintained and backed up daily. If you lose your laptop, all your business information remain secure.
  • Low cost solution. There are no upfront hardware costs such as servers. No in house IT maintenance or administration. Easy to budget for ongoing IT expenditure.
