A-Z web portal development

Whether for internal communication or process automation, customer interaction or partner integration, we’ll design a custom web portal to fit. Our web portal development team typically provides one of three types: business portals, customer portals, or intranet portals.

Business web portal solutions

Data, processes,
and insights

In essence, a business portal is one or more business processes embodied in digital form. The portals we design help you by streamlining processes, turning data into insights, and creating trusted enterprise data.

From dashboards to master data management and workflow automation, each portal is designed to solve the business challenges you face.

Customer web portal solutions

Serve at the
speed of digital

A customer portal is your shop window, service desk, and checkout rolled into one. We develop branded customer portals with specialised functionality such as order and service management, secure payment, and content management.

Our rich industry experience, combined with our technical expertise, helps us create portals that customers love to visit.

Intranet web portal solutions

Engage, collaborate, inform, and grow

An effective intranet saves time and money by bringing all business information into a single platform. We develop intranets with powerful document management, communication, and engagement features to suit your business goals.

From consultancy through to development, migration, and support, we will add value to your entire intranet journey.

Frequently asked questions

Ask the web portal
development experts

These are a few of the queries we often receive about custom portal development. If you have any other questions, or simply want to know more about our web portal solutions, please get in touch.

How long does it take to implement a web portal?

Our project times vary depending on the size and complexity of the development effort. A simple portal could take less than a month, while a complex portal could take several months.

For longer projects, we often start by developing a proof of concept so the client can understand the features and benefits. Then we can deliver the full implementation in phases if that suits the client better.

What are your web portal development credentials?

Influential Software has developed portals for well-known companies including Procter and Gamble, Taylor & Francis, and NewDay.

Our developers frequently win awards for code quality and design. We have experience of developing in line with industry and legal standards for government, finance, and educational organisations.

Will my staff need training to use a web portal?

A custom web portal is designed with your users’ skills in mind, so there should be no need for in-depth training. But it’s often useful to give staff a quick tour of their new portal’s features, so they can get started right away.
