Act Pro or Act Premium Cloud? Confused? Call me and I will break it down for you.
When you purchase act software by Swiftpage you have two main choices. The first is a one-time purchase of Act Pro for $249 or maybe $199 if you qualify for upgrade pricing and you own this software forever. The second option is an Act subscription which includes Act Premium and is $250 per year. If you would like to also have act in the cloud, your cost will be $350 with a one-time $100 setup fee via Keystroke of which I am a partner. I recommend the cloud version because it gives you the greatest flexibility to access your data via multiple devices (i.e. smartphones, iPads and tablets and web browsers). In addition, you will have a backup of your act data.

Biggest Benefit: A subscriber to act also gets free technical support directly from Act technical support and free act software updates. In my opinion, the technical support is the big benefit. Act technical support will not typically teach you how to drive act, but will help you when it is in need of repairs. If you have an issue with act, run it by me first and I’ll point you in the best direction.
Note: Act Premium Cloud subscribers can have Act in the Cloud and on their desktops as well. My experience has been that this is an understated fact and can lead to some confusion. Feel free to ask me about it. The technical term is a remote database. It is simple to create and I routinely help my clients with this matter.
