History[edit]

The company Conductor Software was founded 1986 in Dallas, Texas, by Pat Sullivan[8] and Mike Muhney.[9][circular reference] Its product, ACT!, was released in 1987. The original name for the software was Activity Control Technology then Automated Contact Tracking before finally just using the acronym.

The name of the company was changed to Contact Software International, and the company moved out of its original office in the 'mustang building' in Las Colinas to a building off Freeport Parkway near DFW Airport. Contact Software International was then sold to Symantec Corporation in 1993, who then sold it to SalesLogix (later renamed to Interact Commerce) in 1999. Sage purchased Interact Commerce in 2001,[10] through Best Software, then its North American software division.

Beginning with the 2006 version, the name was revised to ACT! by Sage and later changed to Sage ACT!. In 2013, Swiftpage took ownership and re-branded it as Act! The current release is Act! 21. Development now happens in Scottsdale, Arizona, with regional offices in several countries.

In 2018, Swiftpage made the decision to discontinue the embedded process that facilitates licensing services at the end of 2018. As of January 1, 2019, certain common actions you may take that interact with the current licensing component will cause Act! to fail and you will no longer be able to access your database. Examples of these common actions include but are not limited to attempting to install Act! on new hardware, modifying existing hardware, and modifying your user count. This forces anyone using the an ACT! product to purchase the new updated software.
