Because our proprietary 2-tiered collaboration architecture separates people-centric from process-centic portals, security is simplified and strengthened while automated links between related portals enable easier navigation and access.
People Portals are Teams dedicated to enhancing collaboration with specific groups such as clients, partners, investors, and internal departments.
Unlike process portals that typically have a clear beginning and end, People Portals provide a continuous, ongoing platform for collaboration. Each portal provides a foundational set of basic channels and tabs, offering a starting point for your team's unique requirements.
With SmartPortals, you have the freedom to customize and tailor these channels and tabs, ensuring a perfect fit for your team's distinct needs.
Process Portals are Teams that cater to specific processes like proposal creation or working on a particular project. Unlike the ongoing nature of People Portals, Process Portals have a clear beginning and end.
As processes can involve different stakeholders, including clients, partners, and departments, you can grant portal access to specific groups as required. This is a key benefit of separating people vs. process portals.
Each type of Process Portal can have its own dedicated Team template, complete with channels and tabs designed to optimize that particular process.
Optional approval mechanisms allow for enhanced governance, ensuring that the right protocols are followed, and security settings are consistently applied.
