Act! Premium for Web and Cloud Based SaaS Options


Act! Premium for Web (APFW) is the structure that sits behind Act! Cloud, enabling the CRM system as a web service for access via a browser, tablet or SmartPhone.


Those who purchase a subscription automatically get Act! Premium for Web software as well. This means that your remote Users may access your database via a web browser when you configure your server as a 'Web Server' using Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services).


Performance will depend upon a number of variables, not least of all the internet bandwith (upload is probably more important than download) between your server location and the internet.


We can help you configure Act! Premium for Web on your server. Please call us on 0843 289 5991 and ask to speak to a Product Specialist who will be pleased to help.


Act! Premium Cloud a simple subscription solution with your database hosted by Swiftpage (the authors of Act!).


This solution is appropriate for businesses who require a 'vanilla' database without the use of addon components or any back-end engineering. If an out-of-the-box system with limited customisation and fast deployment are your objectives, Act! Premium Cloud is worthy of consideration. Check out a free trial or sign up here.

Solutions Act! Cloud the alternative hosted option for those who need high-performance browser access to their database.


The database is hosted in a tier three data centre managed by our hosting partner, Datcom. The servers are entirely secure and the database is protected by SSL encryption. With a high speed data synchronous connection, Standard Microsoft SQL, powerful server processors, solid state data storage and uninhibited memory, Solutions Act! Cloud boasts impressive database performance.


Act! in the Cloud...

Here's a summary of our three alternative options to get started with a browser accessed database

Act! Premium for Web

The software is installed on your own server, set up as a web service so that your users may access the database via a browser or tablet/smartphone. There is no third-party hosting and your data stays on your own premises. You'll be responsible for managing your own database and servers, backups and firewall/security etc.

Act! Premium Cloud

Your database hosted on a Swiftpage server. There's no software installed on your premises. Swiftpage provide the service in its entirety and handle backups and data security. Your database sits in a 'multi tenented' environment with other databases so you have no server access and all operations need to be managed via the browser. Good for simple (uncomplicated) deployments with minimum fuss.

Solutions Act! Cloud

You contract with Datcom, our hosting partner (who provide a highly secure UK based data centre, managed backups over a 14 day period and high performance). We manage your database and provide 'outsourced administrator' support. We can handle data uploads, mass modifications, addon implementations, heavy customisations, User management, Smart Task and Remote database administration and more.
