3 Business Growth Challenges Solved with ACT Hosted Subscription

Helping small businesses centralized multiple disconnected databases into one.ACT_Hosted_In_The_Cloud

Business Growth Challenge #1: Your company has 6 ACT Pro users all with their own database.  There is no companywide shared information about prospects, customers and related conversations.

Each of the ACT Pro users are using a different version of ACT for Windows (ACT 2012, 2013 and 2014) on their local PC's. This company doesn't want to have a large capital purchase of software and IT to support the businesse's new growth needs.

To eliminate the headaches and inefficiencies from the multiple disconnected sources of information, a shared centralized database with 24x7x365 access via Internet Browser or Mobile device, effectively organizes and utilized the information needed for long-term company growth.

When moving to the ACT Hosted Premium subscription, the company could better budget overhead with a subscription-based model. As internet bandwidth increases and networks become more robust, stable and secure, more small businesses are choosing to adopt 'cloud based' CRM solutions.
