DENVER, CO and SAN FRANCISCO, CA — April 9, 2015 — Swiftpage, the maker of Act!, and a leading provider of software and services that help small businesses grow, today announced at the AWS summit in San Francisco that Act! Pro v17.1 is now available in AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps for Amazon WorkSpaces customers. With this offering, Swiftpage will provide customers with access to the Act! services platform and find the tools they need to help foster business growth.

Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed desktop computing service in the cloud. Amazon WorkSpaces allows customers to easily provision cloud-based desktops that allow end-users to access the documents, applications and resources they need with the device of their choice, including laptops, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android tablets, and zero clients. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, customers can provision a high-quality cloud desktop experience for any number of users at a cost that is highly competitive with traditional desktops and half the cost of most virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions.

Designed for individuals and small sales teams, the recently enhanced Act! Pro v17.1 is now available on the flexible, scalable, pay-as-you-go Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Act! Pro v17.1 was developed to help users easily organize prospect and customer details in one place. All users need to get started is an Amazon WorkSpaces account and a supported device with internet access. Then, customers have access to Act! contact and customer management tools designed to guide small businesses to the fastest path for growth.

“Swiftpage is committed to offering a services platform that gives customers the capabilities they need and flexibility in terms of how they pay for and use our services,” said H. John Oechsle, president and CEO of Swiftpage. “Offering Act! Pro v17.1 in AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps enables us to provide our customers with another entry point into the Act! portfolio in a secure cloud environment provided by a trusted and well-known brand.”

“We are pleased that a small business software provider like Swiftpage has decided to offer its contact and customer management solution in AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps. This flexible, cost-effective solution is ideal for the small businesses hosting solutions on Amazon WorkSpaces,” said Dave McCann, Vice President, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc.

Act! Pro v17.1 is now available in AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps with future plans of being included in small business bundles to increase productivity and support business growth.
