Books About Business Contact Manager
I'm Lon Orenstein and I wrote the books on Microsoft Business Contact Manager - all of em! I'm very excited about Business Contact Manager and pinpointtools is throwing its efforts squarely behind this great new version of BCM.

Moving from ACT! to Outlook Business Contact Manager 2007
I started using ACT! version 0.7, as a beta tester in 1986. I started my ACT! consulting business full time in 1990.
In 1991, I was the first guy in the first class to pass the ACT! Certified Consultant (ACC) test, so I call myself the first ACC.
I spent the 90's consulting and implementing ACT! into companies of all sizes, in all different industries, in many different countries, and single handedly trained thousands of ACT! users, both in person and over the internet. I really know ACT!.
I started writing AddOn software programs for ACT! in 1993 and have been one of the leading developers ever since.
In the immortal words of Saturday Night Live's Chico Esquela, "ACT! been berry berry good to me" and I've been berry berry good for ACT!.
Now, for the first time since 1986, I am not using ACT! to keep track of my contacts and calendar. Big change, but necessary...the decision was painful, like getting a divorce or going through the death of a friend. Even worse, I had to learn a new system "on the fly" because like you, ACT! ran my life and my business and I had to have a system to which to migrate. So, I wrote this eBook to help people through the transition. Click here to download Moving from ACT! to Business Contact Manager 2007
