Automate Your Business With Smart Tasks
Smart tasks are now smarter to make your work easier.
Defined processes are key to repeatable success. Sage ACT! Smart Tasks help you handle the things you need to get done every day by automating key activities based on steps you define. Common tasks like sending new customers a welcome email3, scheduling a follow-up call, changing a field, and emailing a co-worker can be based off of criteria you define or automatically triggered by a field change4. And with new enhancements, you can save even more time because Smart Tasks now run even when Sage ACT! is closed5—and automatically update record fields once your selected conditions are met from that point forward.
The options are as diverse as your processes are. Smart Tasks are like a personal assistant and project manager all rolled into one.
Capitalize on Added Customer Insight With Social Updates6
Social media is becoming as ubiquitous as email, even for businesses! Your customers are talking on sites like LinkedIn® and Facebook® and you should be listening. Sage ACT! 2013 gives you a fast, simple way to integrate with these popular social media services and displays a collection of your customer's last 25 posts, as privacy allows. Armed with this information, you'll have unique insight into the things your customers care about so you can act swiftly with impactful, personalized messages.
Extend Your Reach With the Power of Social Sharing
Sage E-marketing for ACT!7 gives you a simple way to grow your business by regularly communicating with your contacts. You'll have access to resources to create, send, and track an email marketing campaign that drives home your personal brand. Now in Sage ACT 2013, this extends beyond email, offering the ability to post these same messages to LinkedIn®, Facebook, and Twitter® and add their respective sharing icons to the footer of your email messages. Now your customers can spread your message by posting it on their social media account. This is how a viral campaign is run!
