Interact Commerce Corporation, the makers of SalesLogix, the leader in mid-market CRM and ACT!, the best-selling contact manager, today announced that all versions of ACT! 2000, including international versions, are compatible with the newly launched Microsoft Office XP.

Asia Pacific of Interact Commerce. “Office XP is a strong new package that we feel many of our users will be interested in.
