A brief History of ACT!
•
•
•
•
1987 – Founded by Pat Sullivan (YES -> ACT!)
1993 – Sold to Symantec. Pat has 5 yr. noncompete
1998 – Pat starts SalesLogix. IPO. Buys ACT back with his new $$
2003 – .com and 9/11 crash. Pat can’t make a payment. Sage buys
ACT and SalesLogix from him.
• 2004 – Total re-write. SQL, .net, etc. Annual releases
• 2005 – Pain. Class Action suit.
• 2013 – Sold to Swiftpage
Sage vs Swiftpage (Geoff’s opinion)
• Sage – Publicly traded UK company
–
–
–
–
–
$2,200,000,000 Annual Revenue
24 Countries
300+ software titles, mostly Accounting
$ and quota driven. Hard selling. Good or Bad?
Unaware they owned ACT.
• Swiftpage – Privately held US company
–
–
–
–
–
Financials are difficult
Family Oriented
Moved Co. / Ga. to Scottsdale
Kept everybody
Hired 4 key people back
So What’s different??
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
No more Annual Releases
This is ACT! v16 not ACT 2014
Less discounting
Less frequent “bar-gooning”
Swiftpage is a cloudy business
Sage wasn’t cloudy (accounting)
Most development effort to cloud, phone
Some good people came back
In Sales, it’s the same guys and some habits die hard.

20 ACT Tips in 20 Minutes
1. Edit / Copy a Contact
• If you want to e-mail a contact record to someone.
–
–
–
–
–
Go to that record
Edit
Copy (Ctrl – C)
Open an email
Paste (Ctrl – V)
2. Even better – Send vCard
• Go to Contact
– Contacts
– Send vCard (ACT 2010 & later)
3. Clean out your My Record
•
•
•
•
“My Record” is the first thing loaded
History tends to accumulate
Slows down the opening of ACT
Clean out “Contact Deleted”
• Sales Pitch – 12/3 has written a program to selectively delete history
based on type and date range on all records
• i.e. – “Delete all Personal Activities from 2002 thru 2008.
4. Goofy

Startup Database
Named Database
Aasdfff
Press Ctrl – Shift – Alt at the same time
Let go
Press the key = first letter of today (“T” for Tuesday)
5. Dropbox
•
•
•
•
•
Cloudy FTP site
Free (small)
Cheap (Big)
Great for sharing files and data on the cloud
Do not put your ACT database there!
– Clever idea
– $$ to Geoff
6. Search phone numbers
• Right Click on a phone field
• Searches that field
• Lookup – Other fields – Any Phone Field
– Searches all phone fields
• Same with Any City, any Zip, etc.
7. Question
• When was the last time you backed up your ACT database?
• Scheduler does it for you
– Unless you’ve deleted the act account it ran under
– Or changed your password
– Or ran out of disk space
• V16 will notify you/me if the backup failed
• This will be part of our install.

Count your attempts in ACT
13. Lookup by recent activity
• Who have we met with in the last 30 days?
• Called?
14. Lookup by example

•
•
•
Fill in the fields you want to search on

AND condition is best.
i.e. State=NY AND ID/Status=Customer

• To create your ACT training manual
• Win 7 & 8
18. Smart Phones

19. Universal Search
