Hi.

I posted this message in the Agency section of the boards, but I'm not sure that was the right place.

In short, I was looking at buying some software that can help me track my sales, leads, emails, contacts, etc etc...

I know of ACT! and GoldMine, which both claim to do all this (and more). I was wondering if anyone here has any feedback on either of these programs or would recommend another one.

Thanks.
Sandra

Hi Sandra,

I haven't tried neither ACT! nor GoldMine yet but I can recommend you Contact Plus Personal. It's an adware and it works for me. At any time you can upgrade to more powerful Contact Plus Professional.

Regards,

Word count? Jan 31, 2004

Does it count words no worse than Practicount does? I mean, Excels and Powerpoints and the kind?

I'm still in the evaluation phase, but it seems to answer my needs for now ! It does present a bit of a learning curve, and (gasp!) the language in the help & support needs to be spruced up a bit, but on the whole, it is a good tool for a reasonable price.

ACT is more user friendly Feb 2, 2004

for a freelance translator use.
I use this in the office where I work and it is pretty allencompassing.
No it doens't count words! None that I have heard of actually do!
But the reports and letter/e-mail etc templates are all modifiable for mass mailins, history of all mailings, activities, actions, meetings, files etc are able to be assigned to specific contacts...
The only down side that I can see is that you have two contacts at one agency/client, they are entered as separate contacts and not as a contact under a certain company/Agency!
It's not at all costly and I highly recommed it!
Goldmine is more laborious and corporate skewed.
Not as easy to navigate through!

ACT and Goldmine URLs Feb 3, 2004

ACT! seems to be a Symantec product but I can't find mention of it on their web site. I did find this one, however: http://www.act.com/. ACT has a 30-day trial version available.

Contact Plus claims to import ACT! files.

Goldmine is a FrontRange product. The web site is http://www.frontrange.com/goldmine/. Goldmine has a 30-day trial version available.

It depends... Feb 3, 2004

Perhaps for western countries $109 is a reasonable price but for many people here it's almost their monthly income. It's too much to pay for one app. Were the price lower I would go for Office 3000.

They do count words, I only want to know the details of how they do.
