Making Contact

Goldmine 4.0

Goldmine's main screen, divided into two sections, is very similar to Act!'s. The program also has many of the same capabilities but goes further in the area of workgroup contact management.

Goldmine lets you schedule any activity to groups of contacts and users. A color-coded PegBoard tracks log-in and log-out times, letting you know who's available at a glance.

The program easily imports data from Act! databases, remote employees and Web sites, and links with popular electronic organizers.

An opportunity management module allows you to organize projects and contacts associated with a sales opportunity. Another feature helps you maintain sales account ownership and territory assignments. Other wizards aid in merging, importing and exporting records and updating them globally.
