With MercuryGate’s robust and flexible portlet structure, not only do users have time-saving tools at their fingertips, they can refine their unique processes. Even pick-list values can be customized so a user’s particular portlet contains data applicable to specific clients or businesses. Similarly, item catalogs and address books can be set up to display client-specific information.
