Thanks for the input Rick. I will make sure that marketing is aware of
this so as to make it more apparent.

Take care,

Where were you about two months ago??!!  

I had a conversion, and could only use the ACT! included map. (GOLDMINE.MAP)

Thanks for the info, I'll keep you in mind.

Seems very interesting.
You charge only $250, no matter the size of the database?
Can I have more than 10% ? Can I charge more than $250us?

My name is Clay and I am a new (5 month) ACC.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of some of your tools. I found the very interesting. Do you ever give copies of any of your tools to ACC's to use? I would be interested in testing in out. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for getting back to me. Perhaps you could help me answer one more
question that is holding up my decision:

Is there any way in either 5.5 (preferably) or in FrontOffice to build a
Filter or Group based on Group membership? For instance, I want to look at
everyone in group (x OR y OR z), or better yet, everyone in group (x NOT (Y
OR Z)).

If I can't do either of those things I may not be switching to GoldMine.
ACT essentially lets you do the first but not the second.

Let me get this straight. You offer a service for data conversion, not a product, right?

Thank you very much for the interesting information about converting
Goldmine users to ACT!
My question is why do people convert? ie what are Goldmine's weaknesses if
I can understand this it will help me make a better pitch to prospects.

Thanks. I'll convert them tonight so you can download them tomorrow. Or,
if you will be back in the office on Monday morning, you can start your new
life with ACT!

Hello Rick,
I received your E-mail about your expertize in converting Goldmine DB to
ACT. It was a very timely message as I just signed a new contract with a
client that has a need for it. Thank you first of all.

I am an ACC based in Sunnyvale, CA. My new client is also local. The project
involveves converting their 2-3 ACT databases, 3-4 Excel Lead databases and
one Goldmine DB - all to ACT!. As such, I am in-charge of the whole project
and GM DB is one part of the whole process.

I would like to use services in converting the GM DB to ACT.

Right now, I am finalizing the new ACT DB field definitiuons and the layout.
