Premium 2012 includes ACT! Premium for Windows and ACT!
Premium for Web - NOW WITH WEB MOBILE. Sage ACT! Premium 2012 was created for
organizations that need to efficiently share information and keep up with
all the details whether in or out of the office. ACT! Premium for
Web was developed to work either as a standalone product or in
conjunction with ACT! Premium – giving your organization the freedom
to choose how to deploy your CRM solution.
In a shared database workgroup environment, the ACT! Premium
client can be installed on a user’s PC and connected to a database
hosted on a separate database server. In this configuration the
workload is shared between the user’s PC and a database server.
ACT! Premium for Web
is a browser-based application. Users access a centralized Web
application server. In ACT! Premium for Web, most of the
processing work occurs on the Web application server or the SQL
Server (database server).
To support a varying set of user needs (including connected,
disconnected, and offline access) and maintain maximum flexibility,
organizations can deploy ACT! Premium in a mixed desktop and
Web environment. Mixed scenarios provide instant anywhere, anytime
access through ACT! Premium for Web, while allowing
disconnected/offline access using
ACT! Premium for users who need this functionality. Furthermore,
in this deployment, both ACT! Premium and ACT! Premium for
Web users share a common database and customizations to layouts,
reports, and fields, enabling IT to administer and customize one
environment and allowing users to choose their access method.
For greater scalability (recommended for more that 20 concurrent
users or databases with more that 100,000 contacts) you can connect
the ACT! instance to your own licensed Microsoft SQL Server
supported versions. If you do not own SQL licenses you can
purchase the ACT! Premium with SQL 2008, this product will
include the licensing required to run the ACT! instance on the SQL
Server 2008 platform.
If your company doesn't have the infrastructure to host Sage ACT!
Premium, we have hosting options available. Offering a
hosted solution for ACT!, with on-line real-time access to databases
via ACT! Premium for Web and ACT! Internet synchronization
ACT! Premium database users at a low per user monthly fee.

NEW FEATURE - SCRATCHPAD Revolutionize the Way You Manage Your Day
Forget about conventional paper-and-pen lists that fail to keep you
on task. Revolutionize the way you manage your day with Sage ACT!
Scratchpad1, a convenient, virtual notepad where you can quickly
capture impromptu notes, phone numbers, and personal reminders, with
or without opening Sage ACT!. But that’s not the best part.
Prioritize and check off items once completed, print the list to
take it with you, and push tasks that require further follow-up into
Sage ACT! with just a few clicks. Send them to Sage ACT! as
activities, notes, and history—even assign them to contacts. Let’s
say you’re working on a proposal for Chris Huffman, but the phone
rings, so you get distracted. You quickly jot down a reminder in
Sage ACT! Scratchpad. When you have time at the end of your day, you
push that activity into Sage ACT! on Chris Huffman’s contact and set
an alarm to go off first thing the next morning. Finally you can rid
yourself of the sticky notes and legal pads that have been
cluttering your desk for years and actually get through your to-dos!
NEW FEATURE - GOOGLE INTEGRATION Work Seamlessly with the Web-based Productivity Tools You Already
Sage ACT! is the one place where you manage all the details of your
business relationships, but you may also be using Gmail, Google
Contacts, and Google Calendar to manage additional business and
personal details. You don’t have to check two different places or
manage two different calendars for a complete view of your business
and personal lives. Keep all or just a subset of your emails,
contacts, and activities updated in both places when you sync Sage
ACT! with Google. When an email is sent and/or received in Gmail,
even if it’s an email address with your registered business domain,
that history will be recorded in Sage ACT! on the corresponding
contact. If you’re working in Google, you can see your Sage ACT!
contacts or if you’re working in Sage ACT!, view your Google
contacts. Even clear activities once completed from either
application. No need to stop the flow of where or how you work.
NEW FEATURE - UNIVERSAL SEARCH Find What You Need in an Instant with a Faster, More Expansive
You’ve got all the details of your business relationships organized
in Sage ACT!, but you need an easier way to dig into that data. With
a new universal search option, you can find that one thing you need
in an instant, because search is faster and more expansive than
ever. Let’s say you’re looking for the sales proposal prepared for
“Yellow Jersey Bikes”. Sage ACT! will search your contacts, groups,
companies, opportunities, notes, history—even attachments for that
term. Further hone your search when you filter by all dates, last 24
hours, last week, and last month. Once your search results are
displayed by relevance, simply double-click on the item of interest
and you’re taken to that particular field or attachment for more
detail. And, if it’s not what you’re looking for, simply use the
back button to view the search results page again.
