- They pay you money
- They’ve become accustomed to banking and shopping online
- They often have questions about their accounts
If you’re not offering them an option for customer self-service, you are missing out on a golden opportunity to make your business more efficient and provide a better customer experience.
And the best way to do that is providing a customer portal that’s integrated with your Sage ERP system.
Even if you don’t sell physical products online (you know, like Amazon), you’ll still see amazing efficiency gains and cost-savings from a Sage-integrated customer portal.
Here are 3 reasons why.
1. Customers Are Used to Paying Online
In fact, many of your competition are probably already providing that convenience and letting their customers pay online.
2. Customers Don't Always Want to Speak with Humans
This is the mindset of today’s consumer.
So forcing them to call and talk to a customer service rep or wait for a response to an email (which can take hours or even days) when they have questions about their account is likely going to frustrate your customers.
Why would you make them jump through hoops when it’s more cost-effective to give them secure, cloud-based access to the account information they’re looking for?
The more quickly you can handle customer questions or account disputes, the more quickly you can get paid.
3. The Death Of "The Check Is In The Mail"
Payments are credited to your accounts electronically, and they also flow directly into Sage. They won’t get lost in the mail, sit on someone’s desk waiting to get entered in the system and deposited, or any other such activities that come between you and your customers’ money.
