Ends Goldmine's one-way conversion advantage

"7 of 6" before his conversion to ACT!

For years, Goldmine enjoyed the strategic advantage
of being able to easily "upgrade" and convert contact data from ACT! 
while ACT! was unable to convert them in the other direction.



Goldmine includes a feature to automatically assimilate ACT! databases:
Tools menu - Import Wizard: Import ACT! Data - Import a new file using an existing profile

Goldmine can import ACT! Contacts, Activities, History and E-mail records

Once ACT! database contacts were assimilated into a Goldmine collective,  there was no way to get them back to their original form in ACT!

Resistance was futile.

Goldmine Software is aggressive in the marketplace with its "Upgrade Campaign"


Goldmine can convert whole groups of contacts
and "upgrade" whole companies within minutes.


ACT! can now offer resistance, and strike back!


Commander Data performs Data Conversion

Earlier contact de-conversions with the .MAP or MigrateAdmin
lost something in the translation.
Contacts were left with no activities, no history, no notes, and no email addresses.
They lost their group membership, and were left in a less useful state.

Analysis continued into Goldmine's complex data structure and table relationships


Goldmine doesn't make it easy to convert from its format.
But now it can be done.

"Contact 7 of 9" is brought in for the de-assimilation process.
Captain Asgari authorizes the conversion.

Doctor ACT analyzes contact, activities, and history and makes notes
during the conversion process.

Another successful conversion process complete.
