Top 5 Reasons to Move to Act! in the Cloud

Act! is a feature-rich, customizable solution that offers unparalleled flexibility to accommodate all the unique ways you do business. With Act! Premium Cloud, you always have instant online access to your data, no matter where you are, through a modern, secure AWS platform, and the peace of mind that comes with automatic upgrades.

Are you considering moving to Act! in the cloud? Let’s take a look at the top five reasons to make the move.

1 Deployment flexibility – The best of both worlds!

Act! Premium Cloud offers all the benefits of an online solution – with the option to continue to use (and sync data to and from) the familiar Act! desktop solution that you already know and love. Best yet, you’ll retain your customizations and can continue to use your desk-top-based add-ons. This hybrid approach lets you work offline on your local machine or device and sync to the cloud when you have internet access. 

With Act! Premium Cloud and Desktop Sync, you can enjoy total flexibility in how you access and use Act! throughout your workday and across your team.

2 Convenience

Another advantage of moving to the cloud is convenience. Instant online access and automatic upgrades ensure you get and stay productive. We take care of the technical details, so you can focus on your business and customers. 

In addition, data can be accessed by those who need it, wherever they are, and constantly revised in real-time, so that everyone always has access to the most up-to-date information. This alleviates version conflicts, which can happen with on-premises software if data is altered and different versions cross in transit between colleagues.

3 Peace of Mind

One of the major benefits of Act! in the cloud is that there are no up-front costs associated with hardware or installation expenditures, or resources to track and perform software maintenance. 

Since the software resides in the cloud, all of the software’s technical elements and updates are handled by Act!, without any action needed by you. Automatic nightly backups ensure your data is protected at all times and that you’re covered in the event of an unplanned outage or disaster. 

4 Modern, secure platform

Act! Premium Cloud is a SOC 2 compliant solution hosted on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform providing you with best-in-class performance, security, and reliability. And, Act! Premium in the cloud is scalable. You can easily add users as your business grows without investing in extra expensive servers or data storage. 

5 Subscription benefits

With an Act! subscription, you’ll always have immediate browser-based access to the newest features and compatibility updates, world-class secure hosting, integrated marketing automation, online resources, and expert technical support.

Act! Premium Cloud offers you unparalleled flexibility and is the perfect-fit CRM solution for your business.
