Act! By Sage

Rapidly growing companies often struggle to manage their growing list of customer contacts and sales leads. Act! by Sage gives businesses the ability to develop vital relationships with sales prospects and existing customers.

Ever wonder what drives today's most successful sales cycles? It's technology.


The ability to manage information on referrals, prospects and existing customers is the centerpiece of an effective sales team. If your sales team doesn't have it, they will simply be outgunned and outdone in the competitive arena.

Act! by Sage is one of the most powerful small business contact management solutions on the market. It has a reputation for reliably organizing, linking and displaying contact data that is critical for sales generation and customer retention. The current version even facilitates seamless integration with popular social networking sites to increase the information your company has at its fingertips.

If finding a proven contact management solution is high on your to-do list, Act! should be one of the first solutions you evaluate. Here's why:

  • Fast setup. Act! is known for being easy to use and implement. A setup wizard facilitates the creation of a contact database with predefined fields and layouts. You can easily import contacts from MS Access, Excel and other applications.
