“We needed something that was easy to use, that we could deploy quickly without involving a lot of IT’s time,” said Curtis Preston, founder and CEO of Truth in IT, one of Act-On’s newest customers. “It had to be powerful enough to deliver better results right now, but also have capabilities that we could grow into incrementally. Act-On is the first and only SaaS provider that we’ve implemented that actually does what the sales person told me it would do — and without adding additional charges every time we turn around. Act-On has exceeded our expectations.”

We are now widely recognized as one of the leaders within the marketing automation industry.”
