Everything about Clients/Client Groups

Setting up clients correctly flows into every process in Uptick, making everything easier.

We have a structured way to setup clients, property contacts, client groups and even parent client groups, which flows directly into the customer portal view for these users and makes dispatching and corresponding a lot easier.

It's pretty easy to setup clients and send them invites to the portal, here's how it works:

Inviting a client to the customer portal

Read more about the customer portal here.

Setting up your customers correctly:
This is going to be explained with an example of the company Uptick. 

  1. The highest level of access is Client Group. We suggest this is the entire company as a whole. In this example, Uptick National. You might have 1 or 2 main people who need to access this portal, on a large scale. 

  2. Client is the next level down, this is exact individual portfolio. This might translate well to Property Manager, or OC manager. This is the person who receives majority of the correspondence about a particular property. You might have 3 people who work at Uptick, Mads, Brigette and Luke, who all get their own "Client", so their properties can be linked to them.
    Note: Within the client, you can break down which email receives reports, quotes, correspondence and invoices, to help with workflows. 

  3. Property Contact is underneath a property, which lives under a client's portfolio. You can put people like owners, building managers and tenants under here, and tick the boxes of things you'd like them to receive. 

Helpful tip: You can put client groups into parent client groups. To put this into the example, you could have Uptick property managers in each state, and put them under a client group such as Uptick VIC, Uptick NSW, Uptick WA. You can then put those client groups into a parent client group, called Uptick National. 

This allows you to give different access to regional managers and national managers, so everyone is only seeing what they need to via their portal. 

Please contact your account manager if you need any assistance on this.

Manual billing required- Tick the box if you wish invoices to not be generated automatically.

Fixed price contract- Tick the box to signify that the client is on a fixed price contract, prices should not be adjusted for CPI automatically.

Billing card- Search billing cards and add it against the client to whom you will be sending the invoice to.
