Both Act CRM products – Act! Premium Desktop and Act! Premium Cloud – include the basic version of Act Marketing Automation which will allow you to send 2,500 templated, personalized emails/month to the CRM contacts of your choice. Zoho CRM allows you to send between 250 – 1000 emails/day depending on your level of Zoho CRM service. Zoho One adds Zoho Campaigns and Zoho Marketing Automation into the mix giving you virtually a limitless amount of email.
