Key Customer Portal Benefits

Give your customers easy access to their data

With Knack each customer can log in and only see the data you've assigned to them. Whether it's a job history, invoices, or project approvals, you can share the key data that your customers need.

You can also request data from your customers, so they can update your database directly. No more needing to translate paper forms or integrate with other services.

Save time and money by giving your customers direct access to the information they need, so you don't have to manually answer every request via phone or email.

Integrate your customers into your workflow

A customer portal isn't just about data, it's about workflow. Use your customer portal to manage and automate those critical actions you need from your customers.

Alerts, notifications, and permissions can be integrated into your customer portal so your customers can participate directly in your workflows.

Customers can review, submit, and approve the projects, jobs, and other data you need them to interact with.

Accept payments for invoices and services

Use a customer portal to make it as easy as possible for your customers to pay you.

Customers can login and pay invoices directly from your customer portal, or maintain payment information so you can charge their credit cards as you complete services.

You can send notifications and reminders when payments are due, and use successful payments to send receipts and trigger workflow actions.

Knack integrates with Stripe and PayPal, two of the Internet's most popular and respected payment providers.

Customer Spotlight: SwagRobot

When you have "robot" in your name you know that automation and reliability are going to be major areas of focus.

For John Katez, that is exactly how he built SwagRobot, his customized apparel company. He makes it as simple as possible for his customers to order custom swag like pins, lanyards, and keychains branded with a company logo or design.

Fortunately John found Knack, and our ability to provide customer portal features perfectly enabled him to build a comprehensive system for customers to login and view and manage their orders.

"Knack has drastically improved our workflow and our customers' experience! Our customers can view proofs, approve orders and even pay their invoices through the portal. We even have automated customer pricing. It's a complete customer solution."
