Sage Act Premium 2008

Easy to Implement, Learn, and Use

Unlike many contact and customer management or CRM solutions, ACT!Premium solutions are easy to learn and use because they're designed to work like salespeople work. ACT!Premium solutions provide complete information on one screen, a tabbed interface, lots of right-click and one-click functionality, and robust look-up capabilities. With ACT! Premium solutions, managers will spend little or no time training team members, and will enjoy high levels of user adoption with minimal requests to help desk or support staff.

ACT!Premium solutions are easy to install and administer, reducing the burden on internal IT organizations. Set up your users on either Windows or Web-based platforms depending on their needs. For Windows users, utilize Silent Install to install, activate, and register ACT!Premium on the server, and then push the deployment of ACT!Premium to different users on the network,eliminating the need to install software on individual machines. Or, deploy ACT!Premium using Citrix® or Terminal Services. For Web users, configure ACT! Premium for Web on a centralized server, provide users with a login and URL, and they will be up and running in no time!
