Swiftpage, the maker of Act! and a leading provider of software and services that help small and mid-sized businesses grow, today announced the availability of Act! Connections to six leading e-commerce platforms within its latest release to North America and the United Kingdom.
The Act! v19.1 release provides subscribers with six new eCommerce Connections: BigCommerce, Ecwid, Etsy, Shopify, Volusion, and WooCommerce. The eCommerce Connections are available exclusively to active Act! Premium subscribers. Subscribers must sign up for the eCommerce Connection of their choice via Cloud Elements. Once the connection has been made, the user will have a more comprehensive view of their contacts with access to all order history details.
“Worldwide retail ecommerce sales are forecasted to reach $4 trillion by 2020. Surprisingly, it has been reported that only 26 percent of small businesses have an ecommerce platform, meaning that nearly three quarters of all small businesses still do not have an ecommerce-enabled website. With this release, we’re looking to make it as easy as possible for our customers to add a range of ecommerce platforms to their technology stack – one that best fits their business’s needs,” said Lorcan Malone, president and COO of Swiftpage.
Act! v19.1 also delivers enhancements to the Act! Companion mobile app and numerous updates to ensure an improved user experience. While utilizing the Act! Companion mobile app, users can now quickly create history from the “Business Card” view and easily capture details on the go.
