Connected workspaces allow businesses to automate workflows, capturing and enriching contact data to save time while accelerating sales and marketing efforts

DENVER, CO — June 20, 2016 — Swiftpage, the maker of Act! and a leading provider of software and services that help small and mid-sized businesses grow, announced today that Act! Premium is now available as a Zapier integration.

Zapier allows users to easily connect web applications they already rely on in order to automate a business’ critical tasks. Using Zapier eliminates the need for third-party app developers to create SaaS integrations or build custom software to integrate common workflows between applications.

Users are required to have an active subscription to Act! Premium in order to create meaningful integrations between Act! Premium and applications like Slack, Wufoo, PayPal, and SurveyMonkey using Zapier within the Act! Connect platform.

By creating workflows, called “Zaps,” between Act! Premium and other popular web applications, users can now leverage existing contact information, create new contacts, and record interaction histories from other web applications with a free or paid subscription to the Zapier platform. No coding or technical skill is required to build these workflows. Once a Zap is created, Zapier handles the rest without any additional work from the user, executing Actions whenever a Trigger event happens. Zapier allows users to easily monitor activity in the dashboard, manage connected accounts, and turn Zaps on and off at any time.

“Our customers rely on Act! to stay organized and to know the next best step to take with their customers,” said Lorcan Malone, president and COO at Swiftpage. “Zapier allows them to automate time-consuming tasks that are critical to running their businesses, making them more productive, and giving them more time to focus on activities that create revenue.”

The following are some examples of how to automate Act! Premium workflows using Zapier:

  • Create Act! contacts from Google Contacts
  • Get Slack notifications for new Act! contacts
  • Add new Act! contacts from QuickBooks Online customers
  • Create Act! contacts from new Eventbrite attendees
  • Capture new Act! contacts from new form submissions on Wufoo

"We're very excited to have Act! Premium on Zapier, since it dramatically expands businesses' effectiveness by letting them connect workflows across 500+ different apps they use every day,” said Wade Foster, CEO and co-founder of Zapier. “Using automation, users can capture contact details from virtually any source, as well as logging notes, history, activities, and more in reaction to new information, wherever it happens. Less data entry results in more focus on the bottom line: deeper customer knowledge, increased productivity, and better decision-making. We can't wait to see the ways Act! users leverage all that extra time.”
