My 1994 Toyota Camry just turned 149,000 miles last month. Over it’s almost 20 year life, it has been a reliable vehicle. Several sets of tires, several batteries and countless oil changes. In addition, there have been some rather large expenses (serpentine belt, power steering pump & more). I venture to say that there were at least five times in the last 19 years that I have spent more than $1,000 on my Camry.

Why am I telling this story now?  At least once a week I receive a call from one or more business owners who are still using ACT! 2000 (version 5) or ACT! 2002/2004 (version 6), wondering how much it will cost to upgrade.  Some are looking to spend almost nothing and others are astute enough to realize that they have been using the same software with no extra costs for the past 10-14 years!  Even my Camry has required maintenance costs (not to mention gas!).

If you are one of those people who had the foresight to purchase and use contact management so long ago (when it wasn’t even common place), embrace with open arms the opportunity to upgrade and explore features that will propel your business forward.

Yes, there will be a bit of an investment, but the changes will pay you back in increased profits and productivity in your business.  Just “DO IT”!  Find someone to help you through your upgrade.  Your database is one of the most valuable assets in your business, so don’t take any chances!

I would be happy to invest 30 minutes of my time to discuss your upgrade and to give you a cost estimate.  We perform many of our upgrades over the weekend as to minimize disruption to your business.
