Customer Relationship Management industry pioneer celebrates 30 years of helping businesses around the world cultivate lasting customer relationships and achieve growth

DENVER, CO — April 18, 2017 Swiftpage, the maker of Act! and a leading provider of software and services that help small and mid-sized businesses grow, today announced that Act!, founded in 1987, has reached a milestone few can match in the CRM space—helping users connect with their customers, create lasting relationships and grow their businesses for 30 years.

“Act! has been the trusted solution of entrepreneurs, sales teams, and small and mid-sized business owners for more than 30 years,” said H. John Oechsle, CEO of Swiftpage. “This milestone is extremely significant when you consider the fact that the average lifespan of a business is just 10 years – we are honored to celebrate it with our employees, customers, partners and all of Swiftpage Nation.”

Act! pioneered the CRM software industry 30 years ago when the first version of the solution launched in April 1987. The software quickly became the number one best-selling contact and customer manager and has earned over six million users across hundreds of thousands of businesses since entering the market. The famously loyal Act! user base trusts the CRM software solution to help them better understand and connect with their customers, close sales, drive productivity and make informed business decisions.

Since acquiring Act! in 2013, Swiftpage has invested significantly in R&D, resulting in an accelerated feature deployment cadence. Significant releases and features include the launch of Act! Premium Cloud, embedding emarketing directly into the software, deploying an open API and integrating Act! with hundreds of the most popular business applications.

The latest release of Act!, version 19, provides users with Act! Companion – a purpose-built mobile application, and more robust integrations and compatibility with many popular third party business optimization tools they use every day in order to maximize user subscription value and productivity.
