I have been a user of ACT for a number of years now and have and I have been asked by some clients if they can feed data from a form on a web page directly into Sage ACT, in fact this is something I would like to do myself as well if possible but I haven't seen a quick solution to this.

That can be done using a third party add on or using the eMarketing in ACT! 2010 and 2011.

Yes, I understand the e-Marketing tab in Sage 2010 and 2011 but the difficulty with that is your are using the Swftpage template editor to create your form in a meaningful way, this editor is almost impossible to setup in such a way as to make the form look as it belongs to or is part of the website.
Are there any more direct solutions or is it tied to the fact that you need it to route through another providers server?

Darren Flood (whom I work with) did a webinar with Swiftpage earlier this year (March 2011).
The Swiftpage page is here: http://www.swiftpage.com/webinar/drip-marketing-ideas-for-your-business.htm
The show notes are here: http://www.swiftpage.com/webinar/ShowNotes/2011_03.pdf
I think it covers the answer to you question "if they can feed data from a form on a web page directly into Sage ACT".

Look at Northwoods Web Prospect. You buy it, you can run it off a pc or server. Create your own maps. Works well.

I agree, Web Prospect is a good choice.

You build the form directly from within ACT!. The dropdown list items, the field definition are automatically picked up. Data imports very easily because the fields in the form automatically match the fields in ACT
The form is hosted on automaticwebforms.com. You can embed it in a Web page of your Web site.
