Introduction: In today’s fast-paced marketing environment, efficient and streamlined communication between an agency and their clients is paramount. A dedicated client portal, like the one offered by ZPortals, can play an instrumental role in enhancing this communication, ensuring that both parties have real-time access to important documents, reports, and information, and making collaboration seamless.
Centralized Hub: With multiple people, campaigns, assets, and reports, it becomes a challenge to keep things organized. ZPortals centralizes all necessary information in one place. Integrating with more than 10 Zoho apps, agencies can use an embedded Zoho form to onboard new clients, CRM and sign to deliver proposals and quotes, Workdrive to share documents, Zoho books and Subscriptions to handle invoicing and recurring payments, Desk for Support tickets etc.
Comprehensive Dashboard: ZPortals supports embedding Zoho Anlytics dashboards. The data in the dashboard can be dynamically filtered based on the user or client who is logged in. This means that you only need to create a single “template” dashboard that will be unique to each client logging into the portal. These dashboards can display everything from campaign data, to Google Analytics.
Improved Transparency: Clients can log in anytime and view the status of their projects, upcoming milestones, and access reports. This fosters trust and eliminates the constant need for status update meetings.
Enhanced Security: Sharing sensitive campaign or login information via email or other conventional methods can be risky. ZPortals integrates with Zoho Vault. You can give clients access to a dedicated folder where they can add, edit or remove passwords or other sensitive information securely through the portal. His information is encrypted when sent back to Zoho and stored securely in the clients folder within Zoho Vault. These passwords can then be shared internally with your team seamlessly.
Streamlined Feedback and Approvals: Instead of lengthy email threads and missed messages, a client portal allows for structured feedback, quicker approvals, and a clear record of all interactions.
