Is there a way customer sign ups on our website can be automatically added to ACT?

Hi, is there a way code or something can be added to our website so that when a new customer puts there details into our website it automatically adds it to our ACT database?  So it will be completely automated.  At the moment we get the details from our site and put them into ACT manually, which of course takes forever! Is there a add on program or anything that can do this automatically?

Scott, I've just been told the developers of the products I mentioned are looking at a "Starter Edition" at a reduced price that might work for you.

 

Give me a call late Monday and I might have some more details

Sure... there are lots of ways, depending on the type of site, how it stores and sends the data and the types of data you want brought into ACT!

 

The best suggestion is that you speak to a local ACT! consultant to see which is bet for you.

Great thanks for that!  So it's not as simple as just code to the fields on my website? Are there instructions on how to do it for my web site developer to do it for me?  Or is it something that only an ACT consultant would be able to do?

Scott,

 

Have a look at http://www.egrabber.com/wrgbiz/index.html.  Email-Lead Grabber could be what you're looking for.

I spoke to Scott and suggested a combination of: itFetch and itImport Basic

 

Should do the task a bit more cheaply and with some additional flexibility.

Thanks for the chat and the help before Mike, your program will definetely do what I'm looking for. As will Egrabber I think. However as a small business it's a lot more expensive than I thought it would be! We only have a dozen or so basic forms a week to enter. I thought like a lot of add on programs i might be a couple of hundred. Is there a more cost effective way to do what I'm after?

Part of the Swiftpage service is the abilty to have a form on your website and for that form to automatically add the new contact to ACT.

Bobogdon, yes I already use swiftpage and that's a good idea, and a lot cheaer, only problem is the form doesn't look like part of my website so I think potential clients would be wary about filling it out.

 

Thanks Mike I'll call you Mon
