I posted this under "Technology" but not much hits on it so Ill try here.

 
Anyone at MS or have experience with MS technology?
In particular I am curious about their "Act for FAs" that is apparently imbedded on their system.  I am also interested in their ability to integrate it with a blackberry for communication while I am out of the office.
 
I also have some interest in knowing how their overall technology is as far as ease of management, ease of producing client friendly statements and reports, etc...
Any input is greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you.

NJ, this is your second post asking about MS version of ACT.  Why the special focus on this software tool?  Even if it were the most fantastic version of ACT ever invented, it would still merely be a solid CRM, and as such will never be a significant factor in your future success or failure.

Well, mainly curiousity.
Second as I prepare my move I wanted to get a heads up before I buy a version of ACT for my laptop and transfer all client content.  That can help me not duplicate alot of effort which I can print up and add to new crm program.
To me, that little thing could help alot as I move and hit the ground running and being out of the office alot a good system that works w a blackberry is very important.
