Need information before purchasing please

I have Act! 2010 for our office now.  I am thinking about going ahead and getting Act 16 so i can be compatible with office 2013.  Just had a question.  I am wanting to work out of my home office 2 days a week.  Do i have to purchase another license?  Or can use the one that i will purchase for my desktop at work?  Also, is there anyway to sync the databases between the two so they are always current "Real Time"?

Hello DBHGuardi

 

Welcome to the ACT Community.

 

You do not need to have two licenses if the 2nd computer will be identified as remote.

 

To keep information updated, you can sync the databases. 

 

Hope this helps.

Hi JN,

 

I am not sure i know how to "sync the databases".  I hate to sound dumb, but could you clarify how to do this?

The basic steps are to create a remote copy then install it on your remote system.
