  1. Buying the CRM also known as vendor assessment is selecting what application is best for your business.
  2. Core subscription expense - this is usually very set and not an unknown cost.
  3. Add-Ins are often needed for mapping in data, mobile solutions, integrations with other apps, and etc.

When you decided to deploy ACT! you probably needed the help of a computer consultant to install and configure the program and you had to purchase a server to host the ACT! database.
