Cloud or On-premises: The Choice is Yours
Act! gives you the freedom to choose the deployment option that’s right for your business. Implement Act! on your business premises or have it hosted for you and available in the Cloud.
Or perhaps both with our “Hybrid Hosting” solution.

On-Premise – Act! Pro and Act! Premium
Both Act! Pro and Act! Premium are on-premise solutions that make it easy for you to have meaningful conversations with customers by giving you an organized view of everyone you do business with. If you work on a team that needs to stay in sync, consider the additional benefits of using Act! Premium, which includes Windows®, web, and mobile options, while Act! Pro is Windows only. If you use a number of ACT tools to enhance the power and flexibility of this CRM application, you must check with your add-on vendor to confirm which ones are compatible in the Windows or Web platforms. As a general rule, more ACT tools are designed to work with the Windows client.
On-premise deployment is ideal for you if::
- You require complete access to all Act! features and functionality.
- You have in-house IT resources to manage your Contact & Customer Management solution.
- You need advanced customization and integration capabilities.
- You require control of your data on your own site.
