What Our Customers Say

"You guys are fantastic! How did you manage to do something that Microsoft cannot even come close! My sales team started to use BCM the moment the conversion was finished and nobody complained about missing emails or data! Great job! I'll recommend you to everyone that wants this done, anywhere.

Paul Hopkins, Boston, USA"

"Thank you for doing our conversion. It was impressive seeing all the contacts being converted into BCM without loss of data, ownership or files. Even more impressive was not losing ACT! emails and documents. I love having all my user defined fields in BCM. Great job, you made my life so much easier!

Cindy Gonzales, Hollywood, USA"

"I was skeptical when I contacted you to do my data conversion. However, the way you managed to link and convert attachments, documents, emails, and even history ownership, was something that I have never seen accomplished by a 3rd party conversion company. It was obvious that you wrote all the applications you used to perform these great feats. I have 3 more customers that need your conversion and I will be recommending them to you.

David Skinner, London, UK"

"Act-to-BCM.com provided us with the conversion service from ACT! 2005 to Outlook BCM 2007. They performed an effective and efficient customized-to-our-specific-requirements conversion with no down time on our end and no data issues. The conversion was done around our schedule and on time.  They gave us everything that we needed, period.

Ken Sanders, Canada."

"We found your web site when we wanted to convert our data from ACT! to BCM. However we decided to go with a competing service that was cheaper than yours. After spending a few hundred dollars and many frustrating hours, all we received was the contact information. No history, attachments, activities, notes or even opportunities! The vendor stated that "your ACT! database is corrupt". We needed all the other details...

We then contacted ACT-To-BCM.com. To state that the money we paid was well worth the price does not render your service a fair value. What we received was beyond what we expected. All the data came over with the appropriate links in addition to the conversion of ACT! Emails and Documents! Notes, History, Attachments, todos, calls, meetings, user defined fields, email addresses, even the proper ownership of who entered the item in ACT!. And beyond that, Group ownership came over as Outlook Categories.
 All my users are extremely happy with the conversion!

I know I should have gone with ACT-To-BCM.com from the very start. Needless to say, we are never again going to use the cheaper vendor again. I wish I could get a refund!
Tom and crew, keep up your excellent work!

John Andrews,
IS Director, MD, USA"

Local Conversions

Many of our customers prefer for us to do the conversion on their local system instead of converting the data at our site. We can do that. The cost of a local conversion is the cost of the conversion plus $175 hour for the local conversion time.

Weekend Conversions

We do weekend conversions. You provide us with the data on a Friday afternoon and we have it to you by Sunday evening, all converted.

Here's a couple of items re. weekend conversions.

  • You need to pre-arrange weekend conversions so that we have the correct staff for the conversion.

  • It is your responsibility to get the data to us by Saturday, 10am. If the data does not arrive by that time, your conversion will be delayed until we get the data.

  • It takes 2-3 days to convert the data. The sooner you get the data to us, the faster we will convert.

  • Once you schedule the conversion for the weekend, you may not cancel it or reschedule.

  • There is a 35% reschedule fee.

  • ALL ACT! and Attachments data have to be on our conversion station by 5pm, Friday, before the weekend. Remember, if you have a slow DSL and your data is 2 GB, it may take 24 hours to upload it.

  • You must provide us with 2 phone numbers to call during the weekend in case we have any questions.

  • Express mail. If your data larger than 1GB, you can send us the data with courier and it has to be here by 10am on Saturday, the latest. We provide you with the address at the time of purchase.

Just click on the weekend purchase button.

Why are ACT-To-BCM's Conversions the best?

  • Our conversions match your needs as close as possible. We try to match the ACT! data structure as close to the destination needs as possible.

  • Multi-user ownership of the items is identified and inserted into the subject line in the items being converted for easy, quick perusal.

  • Multi-user support of multiple individual folders for calendars and tasks.

  • Viewing format is easier with the modifications we make to the data being converted.

  • Native mode conversions makes the data fully portable within BCM so that you are not dealing with some extraneous database structure you are trying to import.

  • Ownership: Contact ownership and assignment is the same as in ACT!

  • ID/Status. ID status is brought over to the appropriate BCM field.
  • Private Records. We can filter out any private records from being transferred over.
  • Home Addresses. ACT! Home Address in transferred to BCM Home Address.

  • ID/Status. Lost forever.
  • Private Records. No filtering mechanism to exclude private records.

ACT! Groups - We take the ACT! group membership of a contact and put that data in the Categories field.

For example, a contact belongs to Group1, Group2->SubGroup3, and Group4->SubGroup5. In BCM, the contact would belong to Categories: Group1, Group2.SubGroup3, Group4.SubGroup5 .

- ACT! Group membership is lost forever
Number of Contacts - We can import an unlimited number of contacts. Our record is over 13,000 records. - If you import more than 800 records, you run out of memory, hence the conversion fails.

  • Contacts and Companies. All user ownership is reflected on Assigned field.
  • History/Notes. All user ownership is reflected on the Business Communication History

- Multi-User databases not supported. All multi-user ownership and data is lost.
User Contact Data - Up to 40 user-defined fields can be imported.
  • Data Inconsistency. Most user fields have data that should not be there, either by design or by usage. When this happens, our software will overcome the issue and continue the import.
- User defined fields are randomly selected. When inconsistencies occur on these fields, import fails.
  • Data Inconsistency. If any inconsistency is found in the data, the import is abandoned.
Secondary Contacts - All secondary contacts are brought over to the contact's comments section. - Secondary contacts are not converted and lost forever.
