Practical business intelligence demands proper data collection and integration processes. Modern businesses receive data in different formats from various communication protocols when efficient collaboration and tracking of data exchanges are more important than ever before.

As data increases, the maintenance and management of multiple files from disparate sources take a toll on IT teams. File-based partner data exchanges need to be fast, reliable, and secure for transfers, especially in large-scale operations. Manual data entry and file exchange over channels like email isn’t sufficient anymore. Businesses need a centralized platform where their entire partner network- customers, partners, suppliers, and employees- can upload and share data files, ensure compliance, and track file status.

Exchange Partner Data with Astera Cloud Customer Portal

The key features include:

Centralized Uploading

Partners upload data files directly on the portal URL using their unique login credentials. Validation and cleansing automatically occur on the backend Centerprise server using custom data integration flows. A response file is generated at the end for both the admin and users.

File Tracking

The Customer Portal comes with inherent file tracking: all involved remain up-to-date on file statuses in real-time via the Dashboard. For unsuccessful uploads, the response file contains error codes and explanations. Status emails can also be configured for all types of accounts. This ensures all necessary files are uploaded correctly after data validation, allowing the final workflow to run as scheduled.

Security

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and file encryption are supported on the Customer Portal. Uploaded encrypted files are automatically decrypted, processed, and then re-encrypted by Centerprise to be sent back.

Scalability

The Customer Portal is built to handle unlimited data volume and borrows on Centerprise’s powerful scalability. Cloud servers can also be added for reliable load balancing.

White Label Capability

Astera Cloud’s Customer Portal is customizable, with the ability to use your company logo and domain name. Get the data management functionality of Centerprise while maintaining brand cohesion.
