Act! v16 & v17 users can upgrade now and save 31% If you own Act v16 or v17, your opportunity to save 31% on the Act! Subscription fees will end on September 30th. If this seem sudden, it isn't. When Swiftpage transitioned to a subscription based payment system on May 5th, 2015, they knew many customers would need time & motivation to adjust, so they offered a 16-month transitional period wherein eligible customers could migrate customers over to this new subscription model at what they described as "loyalty" pricing. These savings ranged from 24-31%, and were offered to loyal customers in recognition of their recent investment in Act! Well, that 16-month window is about to close, and those that miss out could be losing one of the best savings opportunity Swiftpage has ever offered, because it's a sale that repeats itself every year. In other words, those signing up at Loyalty pricing will lock in those savings for as long as they stay subscribed to Act!. Consider the math for a moment. If you delayed upgrading for one year, by your second renewal of Act! Subscription at regular price you will have paid the same as if you had signed up this month at Loyalty pricing, but you have had one less upgrade, and every year after that you'll pay 31% more.
COST SPREAD OVER FOUR YEARS
|FOUR YEARS AT LOYALTY STARTING THIS MONTH (one license)|
$190 x 4
|THREE YEARS AT FULL PRICE STARTING IN A YEAR (one license)|
$250 x 3
At half the original purchase price, the regular price of Act! subscription is an excellent value, but getting almost an additional third off that price makes commitment easy, especially when you consider the additional perks bundled with Act! Subscription compared to buying Act! the old way:
- Free Act! upgrades & updates during your subscription period
- $79 worth of training videos now included for free
- Unlimited Swiftpage technical support included at no additional charge
- Free Act! Emarketing package for a base of 500 contacts
- Soon to be released mobile client for Act!
So why wait a year to upgrade when your total cost of ownership after two more renewals would be the same if you simply signed up up today at loyalty pricing? Act! v16 & v17 are already incompatible with Windows 10, Office 2016, and Internet Explorer 11, so compatibility issues will eventually force owners of these versions to look at Act! Subscription anyway, so why not do so when you can still lock in at the lower price for this year, and the years to come.
