two locations

Hi all. I'm a longtime ACT! user, currently using v9,

 

Because my situation is changing, I'm thinking of upgrading to 2013 Premium, with the new mobile features. But I have another question, and haven't been able to find conclusive answer.

 

Will I be able to access the db from two office locations, that is,  two different computers? Plus have mobile access? That would be perfect.

 

Thanks for taking the time to say, I just want to be sure before I buy.

Steve

Re: two locations

Act! Premium (access via web) will allow you to take your database and configure a website on a machine in your office to host your database from. You can use that to access the database from outside your network from a web browser or mobile device in addition to being able to access it from the machine in the office where the database resides. So, yes, you can access the database from two different locations and your mobile device.

Re: two locations

Just consider the following, if those two locations have different users, for better control of information, I suggest you acquire licenses for each user

 

ACT! V16 (2014)  is much better.
