Act! On Premise vs. Cloud


Cloud or On-premises: Act! gives you the choice

One of the few CRM's left that still allows you to choose your type of deployment
Act! gives you the freedom to choose the deployment option that’s right for your business. Implement Act! on your business premises for faster local and network access, or have it hosted in the cloud for easy, anywhere access, with little or no setup. Or do a mix of both! The choice is yours with Act!. Compare the two choices below to determine what's best for you.

Act! On-Premise

Act! Pro and Act! Premium

Both Act! Pro and Act! Premium are on-premises solutions that make it easy for you to have meaningful conversations with customers by giving you an organized view of everyone you do business with. If you work on a team that needs to stay in sync, consider the additional benefits of using Act! Premium, which includes Windows®, web, and mobile options, while Act! Pro is Windows only.

On-premise deployment is ideal for you if::

  • You require complete access to all Act! features and functionality.
  • You have in-house IT resources to manage your Contact & Customer Management solution.
  • You need advanced customization and integration capabilities.
  • You require control of your data on your own site.
  • You desire a lower overall total cost of ownership and a one-time upfront payment.
  • You rely on Act! add-on software to enhance the power of Act!
  • Your intend to share your data in-house across a simple LAN, and would rather not rely on Internet to access your data.
  • You have under ten users, your security needs are low and your local deployment is simple. Under these circumstances we'd recommend using Act! Pro at half the software cost.

Act! in the Cloud
