When your average day at work involves meetings, managing and liaising with employees and clients, more meetings, dealing with lots of information, general administrative tasks and even more meetings; using a Clinked portal can help you regain control of your workload, whilst allowing more time to spend growing your small business.
Whether you have started using a Clinked portal or not, there are five features that you may not yet have tried or heard of, that can ensure your small business can impress your clients and get ahead of competitors.
Branded Mobile App
What is a branded mobile app? Have the ability to instantly share and view files, add feedback and contribute to real-time conversations whilst you’re away from your desktop or laptop. The mobile version of your Clinked portal can be branded, just like your main portal itself.
How will it benefit my small business? A branded mobile app will ensure that you create a consistent experience for your clients whilst keeping up with the times (after all, there are already over 2 billion smartphone users). And with access to files and conversations from anywhere, at any time, clients can always feel involved, increasing their satisfaction and loyalty.

What is version control? When you upload a document into your Clinked portal, you also have the ability to upload a new version of that document, along with any feedback, whilst the previous versions can be stored for easy reference.
How will it benefit my small business? For documents that need to be revised and redrafted once, twice or a hundred times - it’s important to know that you will always have a recorded history of updates that can be restored if necessary, at any time.

What is two-factor authentication? When you log in to an account, you normally require an email address and a password. With two-factor authentication, you will be prompted to add an additional step in order to prove your identity, before being able to log in to your portal.
How will it benefit my small business? You reduce the risk of online fraud and identity theft significantly because a password alone would not be enough to get to your account. When you have to store sensitive information in your portal, using two-factor authentication provides the added reassurance that your data is safe.
