Online Customer Portal for Distributors

Accolent ERP eCommerce Software for Distributors includes an Online Customer Self-Service Portal

Online Customer Portal for Distributors - Self-Service Portal 

Accolent ERP Online Customer Portal for Distributors gives your existing customers the ability to complete transactions or obtain updates directly on their own without having to contact your Sales or Customer Service personnel. Access to the Online Customer Portal is controlled and existing customers will have to register and obtain usernames and passwords that they log on with.

Customers Can Order and Check Status

On the Self-Service Online Customer Portal, customers can place their own orders, and get the same customer-specific pricing, payment terms, delivery details, etc., as if they placed the orders with your sales personnel. Customers can search the catalog using their customer product codes, if these have been set up, or your product codes or descriptions. Once they identify the products these can be added directly to the order. Customers can also see the status of their current orders.

Customers Can Pay Online or on Account

Customers can pay for orders placed on the Self-Service Online Customer Portal immediately via credit card or, if they have Credit Terms with you, they can put the orders on account. In addition, customers can pull up their current account balances showing all open invoices and days outstanding. They can select invoices to pay and pay via credit card at any time.

Customers Can Run Their Own Reports

Using the Self-Service Online Customer Portal, customers can access certain sales reports on their purchases, reports on their payments as well as their Account Statements. These are some of the same reports available within Accolent ERP but limited only to that customer’s activity and omitting any cost or profit information.
