Display your Branded App on your Customer Portal
If your business has its own branded app, you can promote that on your customer portal homepage. You can add the links to your Android and IOS apps, and they will appear as Google Play Store and Apple App Store icons that will direct customers to download your app. You can also add a call-to-action text and an image to promote your branded app to this section. You can also hide or display this section on your customer portal homepage.
Your own branded app can help you gain visibility in front of millions of potential customers with a presence in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Customers and prospects can download your app to book services, manage their own bookings and communicate with your fieldworkers and office staff.
Your fieldworkers can accept or reject new jobs, manage availability and communicate with customers and office staff easily and on the go.
