Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 7, 2010
The Sage ACT! 2011 Roadshow will be held on Friday, October 22, 2010, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Bank Atlantic Center, One Panther Parkway, Sunrise, Florida. The event will feature presentations by Karen Fredricks, the woman who wrote the book (actually 5 books) on ACT! and representatives from Sage North America which is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. Prior registration is required and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres. There will be raffles for free ACT! 2011 software, ACT! add-on products, books, and training videos. Attendance will be limited to the first 200 who register at http://actroadshow.eventbrite.com. The last South Florida ACT! product launch sponsored by Fredricks attracted over 400 people.
Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with Sage ACT! representatives and learn about the latest enhancements, including:
Smart Tasks which automates routine tasks and followups
Business Info which draws business intelligence from Hoover’s TM into Sage ACT!
E-Marketing which helps users to send email marketing campaigns and track results
Microsoft Outlook integration which allows users of both ACT! and Outlook to avoid double entry
Karen Fredricks, a Platinum ACT! VAR and Premier ACT! Trainer will provide examples of how ACT! software can be fully customized to meet the specific needs of its users.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with each other and the Sage representatives at a cash bar happy hour.
According to Fredricks, “It’s been over 8 years since we’ve had an ACT! event of this magnitude in South Florida. So much has changed in both the world of technology and ACT! during that time. The latest version of ACT! takes full advantage of Web 2.0 by integrating contact information directly into ACT! from a website including popular social media such as Linkedin®, Facebook, and Twitter™. Its automation and customization features make ACT! one of the most powerful, yet easy-to-use, solutions for a broad spectrum of businesses.”
