THE #1 MOBILE SOLUTION FOR ACT!
Handheld Contact Basic

Enjoy wireless syncing between Act! & your mobile devices

The Handheld Contact Basic is the same software as our Premium API product, meaning you can sync more data on more devices, more frequently and with less setup than our Classic versions. The difference is Handheld Contact "Basic" has been "feature-gated" to remove some of the newer features we've added in recent years, so you can enjoy wireless syncing of contacts, calendars, task lists, notes & histories at almost 40% off the regular API price. The API & Basic programs are the same, but the license you purchase controls which features you have access to. Why pay for premium features like quoting, mobile mapping, and Opportunities if you don't need them? And for those that do, need the premium features, they can just as easily access them by subscribing to the premium API service.

Like all our Web API products, only Act! users with an active subscription (and Web API permissions) are eligible to use Handheld Contact API products (Premium Basic, or Lite), as API access is a subscription benefit.  

Act! Web API technology
Handheld Contact Basic uses the Act! WebAPI technology to securely access your contacts directly from your master database, and download them at lightning speed (download speeds will range from 2000-3000 contacts per minute).
