ACT! 2012 Pro "Cached Mode"?

ACT! 2012 Pro "Cached Mode"?

Does ACT! 2012 Pro have a "Cached Mode" where it can automatically store and synch a local and server copy?

Our salesman wants the ability to access our ACT! server database (which is on a LAN connection) from his laptop.

I have given him a local copy of the database and so far understand it's possible to sync his "remote" database with our server copy.

 

We want to go a step further and see if it's possible with this version to utilize a cached mode similar to the way Outlook exchange in cloud works. First of all is this even possible and second what do I need to do this, I assume our database would need to be on the cloud? Thank you for helping a newbie again.

Not sure exactly what you are looking for, but the remote database is the closest thing to a 'cached' system. Since it allows you to have a copy of the database on the laptop, and then update through sync.

The Premium version has a web access method - from laptop into database. This connection requires an internet connection; there is no data caching for access without a connection.

Thank you both for your help. I'll create the remote and try that route.

Just curious, is there a charge or subscription for the web access method using the Premium version (in addition to the software)?

 

Cheers
