In an increasingly digital workplace, the ability to collaborate is key to driving business performance. From sharing data quickly and easily to working together on projects and documents, collaboration requires technology and tools that can simplify communication and streamline tasks.
While many businesses have successfully adopted platforms for internal collaboration, the ability to work with customers is another matter. Companies often rely on a confusing mix of file sharing solutions, email attachments and collaboration apps that tend to offer more complexity than solutions.
Client portal technology offers a way to securely share information with contacts outside the organization and provide customers with access to documents, processes, people and more. For companies seeking a customizable client portal that can improve the customer experience, M-Files and a company it acquired, Hubshare, offer a leading solution.
Collaborate and share
See how M-Files enables efficient information sharing and collaboration.
A client portal is a private, dedicated website or extranet where businesses can share information with customers. Access is restricted to clients, partners, vendors and other stakeholders who authenticate with user IDs and passwords.
Client portals provide a wealth of advantages for improving communication and collaboration with entities outside the organization.
Information in a client portal is always available, enabling workers and clients to access the data they need anytime.
Client portal technology can be easily accessed via smartphones and other mobile devices, enabling workers and clients to get information while out of the office or working from home.
Rather than collaborating through email and attachments sent via the web, a client portal enables communication and collaboration within a secure environment. Client portal software uses best-of-breed security technology to prevent breaches.
Emailing documents back and forth immediately creates multiple versions and makes it hard to know when folks are working with the right ones. With a client portal, everyone gets a link to a single, authoritative version of the document.
With a client portal, businesses can keep documents about specific projects, cases or clients in one place, making it easier to find the right information in seconds.
With superior client portal technology, companies can provide exceptional experiences to customers by customizing their data in the portal.

M-Files’ AI-powered intelligent information management solution connects all documents and information in a company’s platforms and repositories, analyzing documents to place them in context.
