Act! Pro Retired from Sales

Act! Pro Retired

As of July 1, 2020, Act! Pro software is no longer being sold. Act! software had a long run with the Pro software platform. This platform was a non-subscription, one-time purchase of a particular version of the software.  Although Act! Pro is no longer being sold, end users will still have functionality of the software. For current Act! Pro users, click here to see how this may affect you.

The software industry has moved into a subscription purchase model for the past decade and for the past 5 years, Act! entered a transitional period where they offered both perpetual and subscription software. With the retirement of Act! Pro, they have now fully transitioned Act! software into a subscription offering.

Even though Act! has made this transition, you can still retain a perpetual license of your subscription software at the cost of 2.5x your current subscription rate if you do not wish to continue renewing your services annually.  If you choose to unsubscribe & get a perpetual license, you would still have access to your Act! software. You would no longer receive updates, receive support for the software, add additional users or access to the API technology features used in Act!. (Act! insights, Act! Connect, Act! Companion, & Act! Marketing Automation) without an active Act! subscription.

Moving forward, there are two subscription platforms Act! offers:
