In order to improve data security and control for all users, eModal is moving to an enhanced single sign-on (SSO) system. This article will provide a brief overview of the new system, including benefits for users.
What is eModal Single Sign-On?
Single sign-on in eModal will allow users to have a single login for all existing eModal.com applications and modules, chassis.com, and any unique, port-specific eModal-powered systems you have access to today, along with any future eModal.com or “white label” eModal applications you may be authorized to access in the future.
For users who work with multiple companies in eModal and currently use a different login for each company, you’ll be able to consolidate your separate eModal accounts into a single account under the new single sign-on system. This will allow you to access all the information and tools you need for all the companies you work with, all in one place.
How will eModal account consolidation work?
To consolidate separate eModal accounts into a single account under SSO, you’ll first log in under your primary username / company account. From there, you’ll request affiliation to other companies you work with. These company affiliations will be approved by the relevant companies’ eModal administrators.
Once approved, you’ll simply log in to your primary account and you’ll be able to view Container Watchlists, make appointments, pay fees, etc. for all the companies you work with, without having to log out and back in again for each company. This will save time, improve efficiency, and eliminate any appointment scheduling or payment issues that were previously caused by users being logged in under the wrong username.
Improved data security & control
Under the new single sign-on system, all users will be required to have a unique email address linked to their account. No shared or group email addresses will be allowed. By ensuring that each user has a distinct email address linked to their account, all organizations who collaborate with other parties in eModal can better manage and control information access and permissions on an individual user level.
