ACT 2009

Ihave this on my server and also run a remote DB on my laptop that syncs back to the 'master' db. Can i still do this if I get an Ipad? Do i need anything extra?

Hello Smarty,
Welcome to the Sage ACT! Community. The remote machine would need to have a full install of ACT! in order to sync to the main database. ACT! will only install to an Apple machine if there is a Windows Parallels (or similar) operating system installed (ACT! will not install straight to a Mac O/S), and I'm not sure if the IPad supports a Windows parallel operating system.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

Would I then put act in the ipad use a remote DB and have the master on the server and sync when I get back to the office?

ACT! 2009 is two versions old and is no longer available for purchase from Sage. It uses an earlier version of MSSQL and if you have alater version installed on your system there may be a conflict. Best advice, upgrade to ACT! 2011.

No version of  ACT can be loaded on an ipad.  With other mac computers, a version of windows can be installed and ACT can be run.

 

Some versions of ACT for Web work on Safari browser or you can remote in to a windows based macine which has ACT installed.

 

By the way, we host ACT over Citrix which will allow you to view ACT on an ipad.
