Act! Success Stories


OrangeCare Support Plans

The peace-of-mind technical support

In April 2014 Keystroke launched our "Annual Support Plans" (ASP) for customers looking for ongoing Act! support with greater cost certainty than they'd have with the traditional "pay as you play" service. 
In 2016 these annual support plans evolved into what we now call "Orange Care", which represents a better value for the customers, and whose pricing is more in line with their needs.

These programs have been a great success, and we think this is partly due the expansion and upgrading of our support team. We have also added so many perks to the Orange Care program the last few years we thought it would be useful to provide an update on the contents of the support packages available.

VIP support plans have a fixed time limit per year, with a purchase limit of one per year. Regular VIP and Diamond VIP are NOT mutually exclusive as you can buy one of each in a single year since they involve different levels of service. OrangeCare limits are fixed at 30-minutes per day multiplied by the number of subscribers. Usage beyond the daily limit would either be billable or deducted from an existing VIP

Use our online webchat service for faster responses to quick questions. Service is monitored from 9AM-7PM EST, and is not intended for advanced troubleshooting

With VIP's, we contact the customer multiple times in advance of their renewal to give them the opportunity to renew on time, and both save 10% and carry-over any unused time

OrangeCare Support Benefits include:

  • 12 months of unlimited Level 1&2 phone and email support (up to 30 minutes per subscriber/per day). Support is defined as phone or email help with troubleshooting error messages occurring with installation, upgrades, application configuration, basic usability and basic functionality.  Pro users can bundle Orange Care Starter with their software purchase, but the first term would be for 6-months only. The Orange Care Starter plan can be converted to full Orange Care with an on-time renewal.
  • Keystroke boasts the biggest and best Act! support team in the industry, with coast to coast support that is available from 9AM - 8PM EST Monday through Friday. Due to our offices being located in both Canada and the United States, we're frequently open when one of the two countries is celebrating a national holiday.
  • All phone calls are toll-free across North America by dialing 1-833-ACT-BOLD or 1-800-857-0558.
  • Unlike with Swiftpage Support, OrangeCare includes setup and support of our Actcessories (including HHC, Act4, 4Act!, Knowtifier, and any other add-ons we make or support), as well, ensuring your entire Act! eco-system is covered. 
  • Must be on an Act! Premium Subscription plan, or be an active hosting subscriber with Keystroke. Act! Pro or off-plan Premium users must purchase Orange Care Starter to be eligible to subscribe to a regular Orange Care Support plan with on-time renewal.  
  • OrangeCare includes Level 1 & 2 Technical Support
  • Keystroke employs Act4support to ensure our customers receive the fastest, most accountable support experience available

OrangeCare includes Tables4act (a $80 value) free of charge

Orange Care is unquestionably a good value for Keystroke customers, but in 2021 we added custom tables free of charge to this support plan. That's right, Tables4act (a $80 value) is now included free of charge with our $120 Orange care support plan - making this choice a no-brainer.
Tables4act is quite simply the easiest way to get the most out of Act!. Custom Tables make it possible to bring complex data sets, unique business processes, and specialized industry practices together inside of Act! to help better manage your business. 
Custom Tables bring spreadsheet-like functionality into Act!, enabling you to track & manage rich complex data that you can link to contacts, companies, groups, and opportunities for easy reference.

OrangeCare covers Handheld Contact support too

MobileCare for Handheld Contact costs $120/account/year, but with OrangeCare Premium Support you get MobileCare for HHC at no extra cost. As Keystroke owns Handheld Contact, all the premium technical support staff at HHC are also available for Keystroke customers, so you get two support plans for the price of one.
Additionally, all our certified Act! Consultants receive extra HHC training to support our regular Act! customers looking to complete their CRM experience with the best mobile solution for Act! on the market - Handheld Contact.

The Fine Print

  • OrangeCare Renewal Invoice: Renewal invoices that are renewed "on-time" using our online renewal tool will automatically receive a 10% discount. Renewals that are processed less than 30-days late for any reason will be prorated at full rate without abatement. Renewals processed more than 30-days are considered a new contract, and would be renewed for a full-year at full-rate with no no fee abatement. 
    Orange Care Plus "VIP time" must be consumed in that contract year. Unused time will not be carried over under any circumstances.
    Orange Care Starter customers must renew their support plan online and on-time to be eligible for full Orange Care plans. Those that let their Starter plan expire will need to subscribe to another Starter plan to be eligible to upgrade to a full Orange care plan.
  • Original Installation & Setup: Orange Care subscribers can rest easy in that their original deployment or upgrade of Act! with us is completely covered by their Orange Care Support Plan, regardless of any daily overages required. Subsequent moves, adds, or changes to their setup, including future Act! upgrades, are subject to the daily limits of their specific Orange Care support plan.
  • Upgrade Assurance: All perpetual license software must be purchased during the term of a customer's Orange Care subscription to be eligible for free upgrades later. Moreover,  the customer's Orange Care and Act! Subscriptions must remain active and uninterrupted between the original product purchase and the release of the newer version to be eligible for free upgrades of those products.
  • Proration: The first year's Orange Care support plan must be a full year, but can be renewed on a prorated basis to be coterminous with a customer's Act! subscription.
  • Exclusions: Orange Care is exclusive of Level 3 support, which is involves more complex work such as repairs, migrations, imports/exports, conversions, report building, and advanced troubleshooting. With the exception of Orange Care Plus, regular Orange Care plans do NOT include consulting services such as training, development, customization, project work, or business consulting.
  • SOW: Service that is beyond the scope of Orange Care or in excess of the daily support allotment will require a VIP Plan in place, from which the additional time would be deducted. In the event of such overages or upcharges, Orange Care subscribers will be advised in advance. In cases of Orange Care Plus, these subscribers would be eligible to use their bank of VIP time.
  • All support plan purchases are final.
  • PLEASE NOTE: VIP and Orange Care support plans are limited to Keystroke customers who have purchased Act! or subscribed to Act! from us, or are current Act! hosting customers. Ineligible online purchases will be cancelled.
