Act! CRM

Swiftpage [ACT!] is
robust in nature and a manageable solution available for use as a powerful
marketing tool. It is compiled of a lot of exceptional services with the best
contact and customer management tool. Support needs a lot of attention, as it
needs to be changed and they must have to be more responsive and helpful to
become the best in the market.

It is really good for taking online bookings including the scheduling of repeat appointments. The ability to store documents for particular clients is useful however I feel that the client should have a more secure method of access if you were to put sensitive information on their profile. At the moment the client only needs their email address to get into their profile which is good to allow them to review a history of interaction.With continued improvements and new features added the platform is growing into a CRM tool however I feel it is still not complete and can be used for this purpose but with limitations.

Pros

Act! CRM

  • Lots of fields for adapting the software to your own requirements.
  • Excellent tracking of activities/details in sales pipeline process.
  • Excellent robust reporting to provide a very clear picture of prospecting activities.
  • Tightly integrated with Sage Quantum accounting software to avoid double entry of prospect details into Customer/Sales module.

vCita

  • Very easy implementation of a contact/scheduling widget.
  • Allows for scheduling of appointments with clients. The setup is easy and the allotted times can be changed as needed. Easy for the client to use as well.
  • Managing communication between individual clients is easy as well.

Cons

Act! CRM

  • Social Integration: The tool has a basic feed for LinkedIn information to feed into the system. The infusion of more Social Selling "signals" and "feeds" would be very helpful to instill more social selling into the framework.
  • Account vs. Contact: If you are a company which works to B to B rather than B to C there is a still a bit of cumbersome way to handle "joining" accounts and contacts through links. It is better with 16.1 release but still it's a "contact" centric solution which is great for some business relationships like realtors, insurance, & financial services etc.

ACT follows the basic rules you would expect for this type of software, but actually doing anything sophisticated with it is near impossible without assistance or training. Unless you use it regularly it is difficult to use. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have internal IT support and it will be used regularly.

Following a few interactions with support staff over the phone where we failed to correct the issues we were calling about, we ended up going back to the consultant who we purchased the software through and continued to use her for support rather than call Swiftpage ACT! directly. Our consultant was much more helpful in finding and correcting our issues.

Alternatives Considered

Act! CRM

Although other CRM's like HubSpot offer a free solution, I found that it didn't give much and the add-ons were very expensive. Many other companies have interfaces that are clunky or hard to understand. Also I found that many just offer way too many features that we would never use that just made it more difficult to use what we needed. The customized options are just way to expensive for the simplistic offering we need. Swiftpage ACT! just provides a solution that works for us.

I liked vCita a lot more for my home services company mainly because it handled scheduling through the software which was terrific.

Return on Investment

Act! CRM

  • ACT! pays for itself by keeping me organized.
  • I don't have to remember to contact a prospect, ACT! remembers for me, letting me schedule follow ups for a date and time that works for me. That means greater sales success.
  • ACT! enables me to search for information as well as contacts.

vCita

  • In the overall, by automating the appointment booking process, vCita saved hours of my time from having to book appointments myself.
  • It's user-friendly so it makes a positive impression on my clients.
