I'm considering releasing FREE version of ACT! for Recruiters database add-on. Any Thoughts? Objections?

I'm considering releasing FREE version of ACT! for Recruiters database add-on. Any Thoughts? Objections?

Pure ACT! database for Professional Recruiters / Staffing Firms.. NO custom 3rd party tables.  It would probably be ACT! Version 17 pro...

More info about the product at www.fillstaff.com    or  www.actforrecruiters.com

As Swiftpage own the intellectual property rights to ACT and make their money by selling the software I think they might have something to say about your suggestion !!!!!! The original post was not 1st April was it?

Hey ch1p,

Thanks for your comment. My products are ACT! Add-On's.

There are many Free ACT! add-on's.  Folks still would have to purchase ACT! before they can use an ACT! add-on.

ACT! add-on's only help sell more ACT! (free or not)... A Free version of ACT! for Recruiters database add-on should create more sales of ACT!.

Now if Swiftpage or the Add-on Store, or an ACC firm would like to purchase ACT! for Recruiters from me, I could hold off on my Free release.

Regards - Bill

Hi Bill

 

Sorry if I did not understand you article, of course releasing free add-ons is OK and many partners do just that.  If it is just the add-on then my comments were wrong, I read it as wanting to have a free version of ACT which of course does exist as a 28 day trial version.

 

If you mean distributing your software with a trial version of ACT then if you only included the download link I cannot see a problem. If you want to have an integrated trial version with your add-on already built in I can see the benefit of doing that as well but I can see the legal guys having a fit at Swiftpage as life is never easy as it should be.

 

Good luck.

NOPE, just a FREE Add-On.. Not a  Free Trial of something else..

I'm considering returning to being an executive headhunter, and would love to look at what you have done with ACT. Previously I never found index searches to be of much value, so I have been playing with ACT V18 . to see if its actually better than a notebook for activity and historical documentation. I must admit, its been harder slogging than I expected. Lots of learning to avoid the pitfalls.

Thank you for reaching out to me.

This will be a act! database add-on.

I have not even started to build my Free Version of Fill Staff ATS. Taking some time to see if any interest?

I still offer my paid version and it is AWESOME. I use it my own self.

If I wanted to bust my humper like I used to and generate 50 placement per year at $20k + fees, that is over $1million Dollars.

More price info at   http://fillstaff.com/

 

Call for more info or request Online Demo at www.fillstaff.com 

Thank you again - Bill
