It’s all about deployment options!
Act! CRM Classic
An online option offered by Act!, there is no software to install or maintain.
Act! Premium v24 can be installed on your own servers in a network configuration, or enabled with browser access to your own servers. This option also allows you to set up synchronization users. In v24 is the addition of Marketing Automation with 2500 sends monthly included.
Act! Premium can be hosted by a third party hosting provider. Since Act!’s move to SAAS, they will no longer be offering hosting to any new users. That’s OK, third party vendors have been around for a long time offering safe and secure hosting with access via your browser or a synchronization database. Basic Marketing Automation with 2500 sends is included and additional sends can also be added to your configuration.
