There are different kind of portals with different functionalities and features.

If you can provide more information about the portal, that would assist to start with.

I would find the requirements of each one:

The Customer: What does his business require that a portal can provide?  How many users does he need to accommodate?  What data will be transferred between the computers and the cloud?  What's the budget?  Time to completion?

The Developer: Share these requirements with the developer to put together a project and timeline.  If there's a problem, present it to the customer and find out what substitutes and work-arounds are acceptable.

You can't talk to the developer until you talk to the client.  

What is it for?
How many users total?
How many users could be active during any given hour?
What type of data?
Try and estimate how much data?  Contacts, that have transactions (how many, what type).  
How many rows of data are expected to be input on a daily basis (You can't ask it this way of course)
What devices need to be supported.
Do you need to support special needs
