What is Customer Connect?

Customer Connect enables a branded and customisable portal for your Coviu account. The portal allows your clients or patients to access your consultation rooms and enables online bookings with your providers.

When Customer Connect is enabled, a public-facing customer portal will be available for you on the web (the portal URL will look something like: https://yourclinicname.coviu.com/app). This portal forms an entry point for your customers to access your services. You can link the portal on your website or send your clients or patients directly to it.

Tip: We recommend having a page dedicated to telehealth on your website. You can advise your clients or patients about:

  • The services you offer via telehealth.
  • The specific days or hours you offer telehealth services.
  • What they can do to prepare for a telehealth consultation.
  • How they can access their telehealth consultation.

Then, add a button or link to take them to your Customer Connect portal.

What does the Customer Connect portal look like?

Customer Connect has several configurable options to make it better suit your workflows. With all options configured, it may look something like the one below.

Where can I find my Customer Connect portal?

Once you have configured your Customer Connect portal, you can view it by clicking Customer connect on the left side menu of the Dashboard and clicking View Application.

What are the options?

  • Connect to a Provider (i.e. a Doctor, Clinician or Practitioner)
    • You can allow your client or patient to call into your rooms using this feature. You can configure what rooms are available (e.g. making a reception room public while keeping your provider rooms private) or hide your available rooms using access controls.
  • Connect using a link
    • The option provides your client or patient with a unique, temporary link to connect with you.
  • Connect to the Waiting Area
    • This option allows your client or patient to call directly into your clinic Waiting Area.
  • Extendible
    • The Customer Connect portal forms the basis of other Apps (such as Appointment Bookings) allowing your client or patient to make and manage bookings via the portal.
