Swiftpage Continues Global Expansion of Act! With Addition of Central and Eastern European Master Distributor

Partnership With Connect Distribution, Among the Largest IT Consultants in Poland, Will Introduce Multiple Translated Versions of Act! to Address Extensive, Untapped Regional Demand

DENVER, CO and SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2014) - Swiftpage, the maker of Act! and leading provider of software and services that help small businesses grow, today announced at their Global Partner Conference in Scottsdale, AZ that localized versions of Act! Pro and Premium will now be available in Central and Eastern Europe through its recently formed partnership with Connect Distribution.

The first solutions planned for introduction in the coming weeks will be in Polish and Russian, as well as an English language version specially tailored for the region, with more languages planned in the future.

Headquartered in Warsaw, Poland, Connect Distribution has been in business for more than 16 years with a commitment to providing excellent information technology (IT) solutions to their customers. The company offers high quality software, with consulting services and technical support available. Connect Distribution will act as the Master Distributor in the CEE region, selling Act! by utilizing its growing reseller network throughout the region to market, distribute and implement Act! solutions with a strong focus on Poland, Russia, Czech Republic and Hungary. 

Although research shows that the majority of small business and medium-sized businesses in the region are seeking small business contact management or customer relationship management (CRM) solutions, they often fail to find the right fit due to very limited availability of in-language, regionalized versions of leading small business CRM solutions.

One of the primary goals of the Swiftpage and Connect Distribution partnership is to solve this problem by introducing and fully supporting regionalized versions of Act! in order to address this vast, growing and largely unaddressed demand.

"Our commitment to fueling small business growth has been taken one step further through this newly found partnership," said H. John Oechsle, president and CEO of Swiftpage. "Few, if any, other dedicated small business contact management or CRM providers are currently serving the local small business needs in these countries. This creates an enormous opportunity not only for Swiftpage and Connect, but for the millions of potential new users that will gain access to the power of Act! for the first time."

"We are excited to join Swiftpage in this partnership, giving customers access to a world-class contact and customer management solution for small businesses, as this will greatly expand sales opportunities for our resellers across these countries and increase our own competitive advantage in the process," said Krzysztof Szubert, general manager, Connect Distribution. "This will be a real game changer for Eastern European small businesses, and we are tremendously excited to be at the heart of it."
