A multi-platform portal experience

Customer Portal was built to simplify the way line-of-business apps are shared and used. We've already built the authentication and security mechanisms for you. Once your portal is set up, clients can simply sign up and log in—it's that simple!

The easiest way to promote customer interaction.

Overlaying any app (new or existing) with a portal, is quick and easy. This opens up a world of new opportunities for stakeholders to interact with your business.

Here are a few ways in which portals can be used in customer-facing applications:


Give stakeholders a faster way to get their questions answered and reduce your agents' workloads. Enable customers to view, edit, and manage mission-critical data via web or mobile, and consolidate self-help documentation into the app for easy access.

Project management:

Help customers to keep tabs on completion statuses and new developments by giving them partial visibility into your project management workflow. Define granular RBACs to decide exactly what each customer sees, and promote real-time customer-consultant collaboration.

Student gateways:

Keep students updated on daily schedules, examination news, assignment details, and more, by connecting them with staff via a common portal. Set up push notifications to trigger when staff make changes to certain modules, and give students clearance to view staff schedules, grade sheets, and more.

Support Portals:

Connect your agents with customers and give them visibility into the resolution process. Enable clients to monitor tickets, update tasks, or check statuses in real time by integrating them into the support rep's workflow.

Order handling and fulfilment:

Give customers, partners, and vendors a place to coordinate their efforts. Customers can place orders based on their assessment of a vendor's inventory, monitor returns and refund procedures, and a lot more.
