I´ve being using ACT in last 15 years at least.
The way ACT manages Products it is not good. Ok, it is possible to add and change basic information but when a user has more products (and I have more than 500) to keep it update is not an easy task.
I have tried Impact Business Suite (Durkin) and QuoteWerks.
Impact has many options but none of them (from what I know) allow me to feed ACT! opportunities or sales funnel.
QuoteWerks seem´s to be very nice to handle products list, update it, create opportunities BUT it is not able to create ACT! opportunities WITH ALL PRODUCTS SELECTED in it´s interface.
Support says it is an ACT! problem.
As a workaround I still keep my business opportunities, forecasts and all sales and products related controls in Excel.
I would like to have all this controls connected to ACT! register but I could not find yet an easiest way.
Does anybody have a suggestion?
How others are dealing with this, if any?
Finally, I use ACT! 126.96.36.199, Durkin Impact V5 and tried QuoteWerks 5.
