What is the Offline Client?

Offline access is a complete copy of the customer’s Act! Premium Cloud database installed locally on the user’s computer, to give access to Act! Premium when a connection to the web is unavailable. The offline client database is pre-programmed and set to synchronize changes to the master database that we host when the user is connected to the internet. It also gives the customer the ability to update user settings and customize reports. Offline client databases can be set to automatically synchronize changes between the master database as frequently as every one hour. Installation of Act! Premium software and remote copy of the master database is required for offline client users.  Use of Act! Premium software is included with the subscription.
