I want to associate a contact to a company directly, without it going through a contact record. The company is the entity to me, not the contact. I have built Act! with detailed company info. I have support people who are assigned to the company. I was wondering can I provide an association to the assigned company in the support persons contact data? I can't seem to use companies in any association without pointing it to a contact record.

Kevin,
You are correct. The Associator only supports contact-to-contacts associations at this time.
We have on our wish list feature to associate between entities like contacts, groups and/or companies for the next version. At this time we do not have a release date set for the next version.

thanks

With ACT! 2010 Sage introduced the feature named "Relations" This feature is almost identical to our The Associator add-on.
Since relations is now a core feature of ACT! we do not have any planned upgrades to The Associator at this time.

You can suggest/request features from Sage using this link:

Hope this helps
