Today, we officially released Sage ACT! 2012 in North America. You've heard me say it before, one of the highlights of my year is to introduce the new version of Sage ACT!. Here are some informative links to learn more and highlights of new features previously shared in my earlier blog:
Scratchpad: We conducted research and observed users jotting notes on paper that were a combination of work and personal reminders. Sage ACT! Scratchpad delivers a simple way to record these digitally, and provides the ability to create notes, histories, activities and reminders and push them into Sage ACT!. Hello productivity and goodbye cluttered desk! Learn more
Gmail and Google Contact/Calendar Synchronization: More and more users are benefitting from the freedom and flexibility provided by Google. This new and seamless integration allows you to synchronize your Sage ACT! contacts and calendar with the same in Google, as well as record emails sent or received via your Google account as histories in Sage ACT!.
Universal Search: Ever had that moment when you need to retrieve a particular piece of information but you have no idea who, when or what document, or email it's in? With the new Universal Search, just type in a word in the “search” box and Sage ACT! will automatically search your entire database, including attachments! No more needle in a haystack, if it’s in Sage ACT!, you’ll find it in seconds. Learn more
Sage ACT! Connect*: Sage ACT! customers are on the go. This new cloud-based service delivers your Sage ACT! contacts and calendar to nearly any device via a browser. Use your iPad tablet or other device to review/edit critical contact, history and calendar details. For some devices like Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile smart-phones, we’ll also synchronize directly to the local calendar and contact application on the device. Learn more
We also made a number of productivity enhancements throughout Sage ACT! to help you accomplish even more in your day. One example is the new Connections Page where users easily configure and enter the growing set of connected services and access integration with Outlook and/or Google. Other improvements include streamlined installation and enhanced reporting.
I hope you enjoy Sage ACT! 2012. It’s a welcome next step in the Sage ACT! line and continues the legacy of tremendous value for the price.
