Our goal is to ensure that all data on Akatal is as accurate, up-to-date, and helpful as possible.

Can I register as a Consultant and as a Company?

Yes. We allow a user to use the same username and password to register either or both profiles. We understand consultants may want to ask questions and to search for other consultants for collaboration, thus the reason for using the same username and password. Please note: different information is presented and the functionality is different depending on whether the user has chosen their Consultant profile or Company profile.
