Initial Administrator Set-Up

How do I create a Portal administrator account if our Portal Administrator is no longer with our agency or brokerage?  Have your agency's owner or main IT contact fax a signed letter to Software Support at (708) 534-5576 on your agency's letterhead stating that it is OK for Support to grant you administrator rights to the Portal.

Setting up and Managing User Accounts

Note: You must have a valid email account and Administrator Rights to complete registration for the customer Portal.

The Applied Systems customer Portal provides a customized menu based on your product. By setting up users for the Portal, Applied Systems can gather information and provide information specific to your users’ needs.

  1. Access the Applied Systems Internet home page at http://www.appliedsystems.com. From the homepage, click Customer Login.
  2. Log in to your Administrator account by entering your Username and Password and clicking Login.  


  1. At the top of the screen, click Profile.
  1. From the side menu, click Agency Profile.


5.    Under Agency Profile, click Manage Employees.


  1. In the middle of the page, click Add New Account


  1. An Employee Detail screen populates below the Add New Account button.  Complete the Employee Detail fields, including what Security Rights, Subscriptions, and Roles the employee should have, and click Save

Note: The username must be unique, which means that no other Applied Systems customer can use the same login credentials. If you receive a message saying "Username is already in use," try a different username. We recommend using the employee's email address as that should be unique.  Make sure to enter a valid email address in the email field, since the user password will be sent by email.


  1. When user creation is complete, you will receive the following confirmation message on your screen. Have the user check his or her email account for a new email message that includes his or her Customer Portal password and a link to the Customer Portal.

Note: Customer Portal passwords are case sentitive, expire every 90 days, cannot use common or well-known passwords (e.g. Password), and must maintain the password policy

Overview of the Portal Tabs

The Customer Portal has four tabs: Home, Management System (e.g. TAM, Epic, Vision, or DORIS), Support, and Profile.

The Portal is made up of tabs and modules. Tabs (outlined below) are groups of related modules. Tabs are either gray or blue, with blue being the active tab. Modules contain specific information or functions. Modules are delineated by a “gray bar.”

Home Tab

The Home tab provides quick access to Portal Instructions, a list of Quick Links, Applied University, Billing Information (if your Security rights permit access), Interface Services, Product Advisory Community, and the latest News section.
