In today’s world consumers are pretty much accessing everything online, which is why it is so important to ensure your firms online presence is better than your competitors and matches consumer expectations. As SME firms begin to settle into the new year, perhaps now is the time to review things and explore different integrations that can be added to your website to provide that competitive edge.
Accesspoint’s Payment Portal could be a great place to start as it can provide your firm with a number benefits, take a look at the 5 all important features which could improve the overall experience for everyone involved.
Making a great first impression is certainly important for attracting new and existing clients that visit your website. The overall look of your website should be appealing and easy to use for all. A sure way to help this could be to add a Payment Portal to your site. Your portal can be customised to your firm’s unique branding requirements to give your website an instant sleek and modern appearance, in addition to this, we also ensure your portal is customised to include every necessary data field your firm may require.
Advancements in modern technology have caused a significant shift in client expectations. Now, many clients base their decision not only recommendation or on which firm looks good, but also has the best technology on their side to provide efficiency and convenience. The payment portal provides clients with a streamlined payment process with features such as the pre-configured email confirmations to clients, over 50 payment gateway integrations and a simple ‘Pay Invoice’ button that can be found on your website, hyperlinks on an email or even a hyperlink embedded into your letter templates.
As people become more conscious of the environment, they expect businesses to adapt to a more paperless lifestyle too. It is important for your firm to show that it is forward thinking for making the switch over from countless paper trails of receipts and invoices to an eco-friendlier digital alternative. Our portal will provide your firm with just that, as it facilitates pre-configured email notification for complete traceability, the email is sent to the client and firm once an order is placed, or if there is an issue with the transaction.
Knowing what is going on with your finances is extremely important and if last year taught us anything it is that ‘certainty is a valuable asset’ and one you can’t afford to miss out on. With your firm’s payment portal, you can now get a transparent view of your firm’s finances as the portal has a secure login area for your designated internal contacts to login and view reports of all transactions handled by the portal in granular detail. Additionally, plan ahead with Monthly/Annual revenue reports that can be dynamically created to track performance.
Reducing the likelihood of client details entering the wrong hands is something SME firms must put first. The need for a high level of security when handling sensitive client payment information is essential and it is something clients look for when choosing a service. The portal uses secure payment gateways to provide you with a PCI-compliant experience that works across browsers and devices of all sizes. No card details remain on the portal, sensitive data is tokenised and sent directly to the payment provider without passing through our servers, so you remain PCI-DSS compliant, at all times.
What our client has to say about their new Payment Portal:
“Our new payment portal has had a huge impact when dealing with client payments. It’s now that much easier for them to pay and it demonstrates our commitment to making their lives easier by using a convenient modern method, plus we benefit from more streamlined and traceable transactions. Accesspoint were very professional and a delight to work with”
