Documentation for Installing ACT hosted

A friend of mine bought "Act! Premuium Hosted" for his small buisness.  He wanted me to help him set it up as he's isn't that technically inclined.


I myself am not familiar with Act! at all.


My question is what the does the "Hosted" version allow him to do and what does a usual setup look like?  Is there documentaion to faciliate this?


From this website the only thing I can sort of scrape together is that he needs to install this on an IIS WebServer and then his employees would access ACT from a browser session or mobile devices.  Is that correct?


Can a hosted enviromnet be achived with Windows 8 professional and SQL Express?  I'm trying to keep costs down because he only has 3 employees.  


Thank you for whatever help you can provide!

Re: Documentation for Installing ACT hosted

ACT Hosted is ACT PRemium for Web hosted by a 3rd party rather than you.  IT runs over a compatible web browser and thuse needs no server configuration as the data is not kept locally.  In your research look for setup for ACT for Web on the client side.
