The Many Benefits of Corporate Portals

To say the pandemic has created challenges for businesses – both internally and externally – is an understatement. Internally with how employees work and access what they need, and externally, with the decrease in sales due to the challenging nature of working in a decentralized environment and the pulling back of budgets.

Thankfully, technology can help mitigate some of these challenges. Our software partner recently launched an upgrade to our corporate portals that helps businesses…  1. Consolidate ordering information – which saves time and resources, 2. Protect their brand while allowing 24/7 customizing of products, and 3. Provide useful data on what is being ordered and spent.  Now is the perfect time to implement a custom corporate ordering  portal to provide valuable data, convenience and free up resources going forward.

Watch a five minute overview video showing the noteworthy features of our upgraded portal.
