Swiftpage Announces General Availability of Act! Cloud at San Francisco Small Business Expo

All-New SaaS Version of Act! Designed to Fuel Small Business Growth by Helping Users Get Organized, Market Online Like a Pro and Automatically Know the Best Next Step to Increase Sales

DENVER, CO and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2014) - Swiftpage, a leading provider of software and services that help small businesses grow, today announced that Act! Cloud, its new software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering, has exited beta testing and is now generally available in English. Versions in other languages are planned for release in the coming months. Users can now visit cloud.act.com to sign up for a free trial or start their subscription for $10 per month.

Act! Cloud gives micro and small business owners the tools to get organized in order to convert new customers and retain existing ones. It combines the best contact management features from the original Act! desktop solution with easy yet powerful email marketing capabilities, all with a new intuitive and touch-friendly interface that is great for mobile devices but easy to use on any platform.

The announcement was made at the Small Business Expo taking place today at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. Small Business Expo was founded with an ambitious goal: to help small business owners and professionals make a name in their respective industry through business conferences, networking events, business to business trade shows, workshops and seminars.

"With the release of Act! Cloud, we have really come full-circle on the journey that we set out on when we founded Swiftpage back in 2001, which was essentially to fuel small business growth," said Bob Ogdon, chairman and founder of Swiftpage. "Last year, when we acquired Act!, we gained the missing contact management piece to our portfolio. Act! Cloud seamlessly fuses contact management and emarketing to give small business owners, who often don't have time to fuss with multiple solutions, the tools to effectively run and grow their businesses."
