Out with the old, in with the new! ACT v16 is en route for its Fall debut. Come get a first look at the Beta with this year’s ACT Roadshow! The naming of ACT v16 is equivalent to ‘ACT 2014’, but a new naming cycle was implemented.

Following the success of previous years’ Roadshows, Twelve/Three will once again be hosting a free first-look event for our clients.

This year’s theme is New Direction: ACT under new Swiftpage Management!

On March 20, 2013, Swiftpage purchased ACT and Saleslogix from Sage Software. Geoff Boulden of Twelve/Three met the new owners of ACT at a conference in Scottsdale, AZ the weekend of May 2-5th. Here is his report.


The newest version of the best CRM software is coming!

In March 2013, Swiftpage purchased ownership of ACT! software from Sage.  They are making a return to the old naming system, by dropping the Sage name and calling this year’s release v16 instead of 2014.


What’s new in act! v16?

There is no official release date on the books yet, but we project that it will hit shelves sometime in the Fall- most likely September.  Twelve/Three got the opportunity to use the pre-market alpha release, and so far it looks great. We also haven’t gotten word of all the details, but here’s a look at some of the key points expected to be included! Please remember that these are not yet officially confirmed and are subject to change.

This release seems to focus more heavily on ACT for Web and mobile solutions. Which, might we add, is far more valuable in today’s world where you can’t always have a laptop or desktop to check your CRM.
