History

The company Conductor Software was founded 1986 in Dallas, Texas, by Pat Sullivan and Mike Muhney. The original name for the software was Activity Control Technology, then Automated Contact Tracking, before finally just using the acronym. The name of the company was subsequently changed to Contact Software International and it was sold in 1993 to Symantec Corporation, who in 1999 then sold it to SalesLogix (later renamed Interact Commerce). The Sage Group purchased Interact Commerce in 2001 through Best Software, then its North American software division. Swiftpage acquired it in 2013.

Beginning with the 2006 version, the name was styled ACT! by Sage, and in 2010 revised to Sage ACT!.

Following its 2013 acquisition by Swiftpage, it was renamed to Act!. Swiftpage.

In May 2018, Act! was sold to SFW Advisors.

In December 2018, Kuvana, a marketing automation software solution, was acquired by SFW and merged with Act! This add-on is now a complementary service to the core CRM solution.

In December 2019, Act! hired Steve Oriola as President and CEO.

In 2020, Swiftpage changed its company name to Act! LLC.

In March 2023, Act! hired Bruce Reading as President and CEO.
