ACT! E-marketing is getting an extreme makeover with the upcoming launch of Sage ACT! 2011, starting with its name. From now on, our E-marketing service will be known as 'Sage E-marketing for ACT!.' This will help us be consistent when we roll out additional services for E-marketing and other categories.
Along with the name change, Sage E-marketing for ACT! will have a new icon on the contact, company, and group toolbars - a more stylized version of the current users have seen, which conveys a greater sense of motion or action as well as a consistent style with other ACT! icons. Go check it out!
But the makeover doesn't end there - there's lots of new features inside Sage E-marketing for ACT!, including:
Integration with Smart Tasks Sage E-marketing comes integrated with ACT! 2011 smart tasks out of the box. When you're designing smart tasks, you can easily add a step to send an e-mail or add a contact to a drip campaign and directly access your email templates and campaigns. Talk about a personal assistant!
Ability to edit imported templates At long last! Sage E-marketing for ACT! now includes an Advanced Editor which can edit imported templates.
