Unfortunately we live in an age where there are a few people who make it their business to intercept emails and steal information. For this reason emailing documents unencrypted is not entirely secure and can put your information at risk. To combat this we are introducing a client portal that sends your documents to a secure website. You will have your own log in details and will be able to see any documents we send you. You’ll have access to them anytime, anywhere. All you need is access to the internet (this can be via smartphone or tablet).
This means that you won’t need to search old emails from us to find documentation or information. It will all be readily available through the portal for up to 12 months.
Through the portal you’ll also be able to sign documents off via the internet. This means no trips to the post office to send signed documentation back to us. One click through the portal and you will have signed a document, with the signed copy automatically sent back to us.
This is the future of document sharing and we are pleased to be introducing this measure which will increase your security as well as your access to documentation.
We will soon be sending a document out which will prompt you to Activate your account.
