February, 2013 - What the ACT! Fanatics think of Mike Lazarus
On hearing about the sale of ACT! from Sage to Swiftpage, there were a number of threads stared similar to this one in the LinkedIn ACT! Fanatics Group.

I am amazed, stunned, honoured and humbled at this out-pouring of respect. Having worked in every aspect of the channel, except the vendor, in the 25+ years supporting ACT! - I would make myself available if Swiftpage decided they could utilise my knowledge and skill-set.

Thank you all
