What is the Cortado Enterprise Portal?

The Cortado Enterprise Portal is a web portal, with which ThinPrint customers and distributors can obtain a convenient overview of licenses they have either purchased or sold.

It provides data on the status, on service entitlements as well as on the (service) runtime of individual licenses. The Cortado Enterprise Portal also provides access to the latest software versions of ThinPrint or Personal Printing product lines. In addition, the portal can be used for the following service features:

  • software activation
  • support requests
  • requests for non-binding offers for Update and Support Services
  • retrieving free license keys under the Annual Licensing (ALM) and service pro­vider models
  • destruction of redundant licenses

Note: Please also refer to the section Renewal of license subscription.

A distinction is made between the following user groups:

Service provider

Views

The various service features of the Cortado Enterprise Portal are provided via so-cal­led views. A Customer View, for example, comprises different features to a Reseller View. A company can have multiple views. For example, a reseller who both sells licenses, as well as having a service provider contract with ThinPrint, receives the Reseller View and the Service Provider View. End customers usually receive only the Customer View, which contains the greatest range of features and services.

Views can be selected in the portal’s upper left menu list:

Reseller View (active) and Customer View

Reseller View (active) and Customer View

In the example shown (Illus. above) the user has access to both the Reseller View and the Customer View. The blue arrow indicates that the Reseller View is currently open. Depending on which view is clicked on, different features (Actions buttons) will be available.
