GDPR & Databases

The impacts of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on an organisation will vary according to the nature and granularity of data that is being collected and held, but for organisations that are impacted then good database design, data integrity, the ability to generate reports and access security will be of paramount importance.

If you use an Act! database and would like this customised to meet the requirements of GDPR then we can assist using our many years of experience in database design for industries and organisations across all business sectors.

Act! offers more cost effective deployment options than any other CRM solution in the market – i.e. On Premise, Hosted, Hosted On Your Cloud, Remote Database.

We have a small GDPR article on our blog here

Our ‘GDPR & Act! Compliance‘ infographic highlights a number of aspects that Act! database owners may wish to consider when looking at GDPR compliance is their businesses – these aspects may well be valid for other systems it can be downloaded here. 

In addition, Swiftpage have published two GDPR guides for Act! – one for existing Act! users and one for new Act! users.
