Last week, I hinted that changes were coming to ACT! Platinum Care. I am happy to report that changes have come and they are live for everyone to take advantage of.
Since its inception, ACT! Platinum Care consisted of software maintenance or upgrade assurance - an annual subscription that entitled subscribers to any and all new major releases of their version ACT! while they held a valid subscription to ACT! Platinum Care. Additionally, and this is what made the program unique in the world of Sage, ACT! Platinum Care also came with a host of extras like sales training and special offers on business services.
With the refresh of ACT! Platinum Care (I'll unofficially call it ACT! Platinum Care 2.0), we've added new benefits and offers to the program and made them easier to access. Where subscribers were once asked to go to the ACT! Platinum Care portal, set up their username and password, then login to see and take advantage of benefits, all you need to do now is go to the Business Services pages on ACT.com. Once there, you'll find money saving offers such as:
40% off Sage Online Meetings - You may know this service as GoToMeetin
®. If you already use GoToMeeting or a competitor, you'll want to jump on this one. You'll save almost $30 a month.
Get 50 bucks credit when you start using Sage Payment Solutions to be your credit card processor. If you are in business, you should be accepting credit cards. If you already have a vendor, you may want to check out Sage Payment Solutions to see if you can save money. They'll even waive the normal $129 application fee.
As an ACT! Platinum Care subscriber, save $10 every month on your business' phone bill. Plus, save $50 on the productivity-enhancing VoIP Add-On for ACT! You've probably heard of VoIP phones (voice over internet protocol). If you're thinking of making the switch, check out this offer first.
Sandler Sales bundle - If you've already been an ACT! Platinum Care subscriber, you probably already know Sandler. They have put together a nice bundle that includes two best-selling books (hard copies), access to the Sandler Broadcast Center, the SandlerBrief and a voucher for a training session at a local Sandler location - you'll save at least $200 compared to the normal price.
Now the easy part...to get your ACT! Platinum Care benefits, all you have to do is enter your customer number on the benefits page into our little validator widget. If you don't know your number, you can call in to customer service, call your ACT! sales representative or your ACT! Certified Consultant.
We'll be continually making improvements to this program. We'd like to hear what you think about the new changes. Drop us a line or respond to this post.
