ACT Consultant for over 20 years and completed projects in many different parts of the world.
With experience on over 7000 sites in more than 15 countries I believe I have seen ACT! used for some of the most obtuse reasons as it works very well even if your contacts are pieces of mining equipment 600 feet underground.
I first started using ACT! back in 1988 while Advertising Mananger for a national electronics magazine and have been hooked ever since. Mike Muhney one of the co-founders of ACT! and I are still good mates and catch up on a frequent basis. His inspiration of "useful use" for ACT! has always inspired me to consider this when designing customer databases.
When the consultant program was first introduced in 1989 I travelled to Dallas to certify excited by the prospect this application would deliver. A lot of water has travelled under the bridge since then and I have been invoved in many aspects of the development and distribution of the program including leading a development team in China to develop a Chinese version in 2001.
