I’d like to migrate away from ACT (by Sage) and would like to transfer my info from ACT. Any good alternatives for a single person company?
As a single-person company, you can get away with paying very little for CRM. Here is a list of free CRM to consider with paid upgrades.
For small businesses, I always like to recommend Zoho CRM which is free for up to 3 users with a surprising number of features such as reporting, social integration, mobile access, and up to 5000 records. The next step up from the free version is $12 per user/mo, which includes up to 100,000 records, sales forecasting, and email marketing among other features. It's a handy and cheap tool for people like you who need a clean and cost-effective CRM.
Zimplu CRM offers free usage up to 4 users, and there is no limitation other than having a maximum of 3 co-workers that use Zimplu with you. Try it at www.zimplu.com.
