Summary & Pricing

Thomson Reuters was among the first to realize the potential for portals to enhance the firm-client relationship, and leads in developing innovative uses for the system. With the ability to offer clients extensive access to applications and documents, NetClient CS portals and the integrated programs in the CS Professional Suite combine to provide outstanding collaboration and client service. The system is at its best when used alongside the CS Professional Suite. The portals are sold in bundles of 1,000 for $175 per month, giving firms the ability to offer them to their entire client base, or those who want them, without relying on a per-portal pricing method.
