An established web portal development company, ScienceSoft can help you create a web portal of any type to cover specific needs in engaging with your audience, be it your customers, partners, or employees.

Self-service portals

A self-service portal aggregates information on products, services or corporate information and allows users to request information, activate / de-activate and schedule services. The common types of service portals are customer self-service portals, employee self-service portals and government service portals.

TYPES of self-service portals

An employee self-service portal (ESS portal) is a secure platform for employees to submit and manage requests for HR, IT, and facility-related services, as well as access structured corporate data. The ESS portal often is a part of a larger HR portal.

A customer self-service portal offers information and resources to help customers request services, find information, and solve service/product-related problems. To get a clearer idea of customer portals, browse our sample B2B customer portal for a furniture manufacturer.


Patient portals

A patient portal provides patients with secure access to their personal health information (PHI), enables self-scheduling for appointments and helps patients communicate with doctors or nurses between visits. ScienceSoft delivers HIPAA- and FDA-compliant patient portals, empowers them with telehealth functionality, and integrates with EHR, CRM, call center software, practice management systems, etc.

Ecommerce portals (B2C and B2B)

An ecommerce portal facilitates buyer-seller transactions and communication between a business and consumers (B2C ecommerce portals) or other businesses (B2B ecommerce portals).

Vendor portals

A vendor portal aggregates and organizes all supplier-related data and provides rich functionality for buyers’ quick, smooth and effective communication with vendors. Our team builds vendor portals for manufacturers, non-manufactures (banks, education establishments, government institutions) and group purchasing organizations (GPO). To explore the key functionality of vendor portals, check our vendor portal demo for an F&B manufacturing сompany.

eLearning portals

An eLearning portal is a gateway that guides users to a variety of learning materials (including documents, videos, presentations, interactive training materials) and often sits on top of an LMS or an intranet. ScienceSoft creates learning portals for training providers and end customers, be they businesses or individual learners.

Community portals

A community portal helps people with similar interests to build collaborative relationships and exchange experience and ideas. We build structured community portals with user-friendly interfaces and a rich array of social functionality, including chat, forums, blogs, events, media files support, and more.

Partner portals

A partner portal is a tool for businesses that sell via indirect sales channels to manage partner relations and encourage partners to sell more. Our experts build partner portals with comprehensive functionality – aggregated marketing and sales information, configurators, calculators, inventory, order status checking, learning and training, advanced analytics.

Our company worked on a scalable and secure portal to buy, sell and store cryptocurrency. To deliver advanced user experience, the portal needed a highly adaptive and compelling UI with different kinds of financial graphs and diagrams.

In early 2020, we hired ScienceSoft to help our team with frontend portal development focusing on SCSS and Angular 9. The cooperation ran very smoothly. We enjoyed our collaboration with ScienceSoft and won’t hesitate to recommend their frontend development expertise!
