What is Portal?

iServer Portal is a valuable communication module that allows architects to make repository content available in HTML 5 format through a dynamic, business-friendly and web-based portal. Using Portal, users can communicate iServer content to the wider business via a platform that is easy to use and accessible from any internet browser. Additionally, browser users, when permitted, can ‘contribute’ to repository content by editing specific information through Portal.
