All information at a glance

Spindle Self Serve provides your customers with an easy-to-use online customer portal, enabling them to view their own account information. From invoices, credit notes, statements and order history, Spindle Self Serve delivers real-time information to your customers and staff.

View account information such as sales order and invoice history, as well as outstanding invoices 24/7.

Flexibility for every department

Technology has revolutionised how all departments operate, no matter which industry you are in. Whether it’s streamlining workflows, enabling collaboration or securing your information, there are a wide range of benefits for many businesses. Spindle Self Serve enables you to provide this flexibility for every department, helping you to improve your efficiencies, productivity, and business profitability.

As it can take around 15 minutes to locate and send documents, invoice copy requests can result in a lot of admin time wasted. Providing a self-service portal means customers can access these documents immediately, saving you time.

Being able to access customer information whilst out of the office is essential to your sales team. It enables them to view customers’ account information and prepare for meetings with visibility of current orders, account history and balances.

You can provide access to non-Sage users, meaning you do not need to purchase an additional licence. Saving you money and improving your customer service efficiency by responding quickly to customer queries.

Promote additional messages directly to your customer base using in-system pop-up messages. Cross and up-sell your existing solutions and target different customers with different offers.

Instant access for your customers so they can view their account details, access documents, invoice and credit history, as well as order histories. Saving time for both your teams and the customer with online portal access.

Self Serve

Providing your customers with the ability to self-serve reduces the time you need to spend answering customer queries. Even searching for one invoice takes time. This is time your team could use on more business critical activities. Spindle Self Serve gives your customers the opportunity to manage their own accounts directly.

Provide your customers with access to their account anywhere, at any time. Enabling them to view any relevant documents such as account summary, recent orders, invoices and credit history.

Give your customers the ability to order online whenever is convenient for them, improving your levels of customer service, and saving your team time on entering orders themselves.

Allow your customers to view real-time stock availability and orders, which they can track with Spindle Self Serve. Your staff can also view real-time stock and place orders on behalf of the customer without needing to access Sage.
