DENVER, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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! v18.2 is now available for desktop users. The key feature of Version 18.2 is Act! Connect Link.
Act! Connect Link allows desktop users to create integrations between their Act! application and online applications. This allows Act! desktop users to quickly and easily set up connections between Act! and Outlook®, Slack, PayPal, Wufoo, QuickBooks Online, and other business web tools, using the Zapier integration platform.
No competitor in the CRM space is offering this level of integration with hundreds of third party tools without requiring a web server. With Act! v18.2, small and mid-sized businesses utilizing desktop Act! software will not need to commit resources to installing and maintaining their own web server—as well as moving their entire staff over to cloud software. Instead, they can experience Act!'s many incredible third-party cloud integrations directly from their desktop software.
"Version 18.2 with Act! Connect Link is the culmination of a journey that began with the release of Act! v18—which set out to make Act! the true central command center for our customers," said Lorcan Malone, president and COO of Swiftpage. "Now all active subscribers, regardless of deployment, receive the benefits of Act! Connect, allowing them to connect their Act! databases with the other business optimization tools they are already using—ensuring all of their customer data is up to date and housed within Act!."
