The Act! SDK (software development kit) remains a comprehensive tool for developers to produce useful add-ons for Act! allowing a high degree of modification and user interface development, well beyond most Windows desktop business products available. It has enabled Act! to stay relevant to a wide range of industry and vertical markets.
This week, Xact Software completed a development structure that provides a plug-in to an Act! add-on (aka a plugin for a plugin).
The first product to benefit from that is our Xact Link for Act! and QuickBooks , where we can now produce and maintain bespoke customisations more efficiently as a plugin to the mainstream release. I believe this to be the first time it has been done in the history of Act!! SDK add-ons.

You may not be aware of it but Jim Durkin's Impact Suite for Act! has had an SDK, particularly in his custom tables module, for quite a few releases now. I have used it to create unique customizations for several clients as well as a specific customization for our own internal use of Act!.
