Sage North America today announced new mobile and e-marketing functionality for Sage ACT! Contact and Customer Management users.
Sage ACT! Connect provides an enhanced app-style interface for accessing contact, activity, and notes/history data on popular smartphones and tablets, including Android, iPhone; and iPad. The new Sage ACT! Premium Mobile enables users of these devices and self- or partner-hosted Sage ACT! Premium 2012 v14.2 deployments to access the same data, and includes additional workgroup functionality. Sage E-marketing for ACT! enhancements let users share email marketing communications via Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn when launching campaigns, and add links to these social networks in email footers so recipients can share them too.

"Sage provides mobile flexibility using a dynamic Web standard. It was among the first to adopt [HTML 5], so the data users need to do business productively is made conveniently available and displayed perfectly on whichever devices are in hand."
