Example Scenario #1 – IT Support Company:

Pretend you offer a variety of IT support services for various clients.  Customers have accounts set up with your company and you track their support issues, assets that you are tracking for them, some special customer access codes and license information.  For clients you may have current on-going monthly charges, some outstanding quotes for projects and invoices for other purchased equipment.

With the Account Manager, customers can log into their Customer+Center account and select the Account Manager option to view a single page summary of all of their account information.

Example Scenario #2 – Software/Hardware Vendor:

Pretend that you develop and sell a business class piece of software or hardware product.  Each sale is carefully licensed and tracked with license information, expiration dates and support services levels.    You provide support, replacements, service and track your product with the Web+Center asset tracking component where you record installation and configuration information and field service visits.  The account manager provides an excellent tool for customers to log into their account and get full and current account information about their product and services.  Customers can even do this without contacting the company since this information is always available.
