We currently use Act! 2007 as our contact manager. We are reevaluating using Act! vs Outlook with BCM. How does outlook with BCM compare to Act! as far as functionality, usability, and ease of use. We currently have outlook 2007 and are wondering if it would be a better solution. Please let me know what you think

For a better solution, you really need to go for Microsoft Dynamics. BCM is a simpler solution

BTW: If using Outlook 2007, you really should look at ACT! 2009 which integrates much better with Outlook than ACT! 2007
