In this blog post, we'll take a look at some of the interesting billing trends for 2023 and explore how they're likely to impact businesses across all industries. We'll also highlight a few best practices to help you get started with modern billing methods. So, if you're looking to stay ahead of the curve in 2023, read on!

RevOps Strategy Has a Key Role in Your Billing

RevOps is mostly referred to as the operational activities of Sales, Marketing, and Support bundled together to better serve the client’s needs across the full customer journey. Putting the client in the center should result in smoother transactions, higher customer satisfaction, higher CLV, and more growth. How should finance be involved and should billing be part of RevOps? We say that is essential to include finance and billing in your RevOps strategy.


Customer-Centricity – The Customer is Right, Always?

Customers today expect a more personalized experience when they interact with suppliers. This includes billing experiences. By offering customer-centric billing, businesses can improve customer satisfaction and loyalty.

In 2023, service billing will be more customer-centric than ever. This means that companies will focus on providing a great customer experience while also ensuring that billing is accurate and easy to understand. And, naturally, the customer is always right, but there has never been a time when the customer had so many options to be right in decision-making. With the rise of the subscription economy, customers can evaluate their decisions, and suppliers need to prove themselves all over again to stay in business. What does this mean from a billing perspective? And what tech options do you have to keep up with these challenges?


Use Your Billing Data to Make Better Business Decisions

Data-driven billing will be increasingly important. Data-driven decision-making has been the holy grail since the inception of business analytics. Many years and management books later, the old phrasing “garbage in, garbage out” still seems as valid as on day one. So where do you find relevant data? We say: You are sitting on it. Just use your billing data for decision-making. Read more:


The servitization megatrend: why more and more companies are making the switch

The rise of servitization, changing product-driven business models to more service or outcome-driven, has led to great opportunities in the manufacturing industry. Themes like Industry 4.0 and IoT-driven demand have opened opportunities to create additional recurring revenue streams. But what does this mean for billing and monetization?


The pay-per-use billing trend is booming

Pay-per-use billing will continue to grow in popularity, as it allows customers to only pay for the services they use. There are many reasons for both clients and companies to prefer subscription or pay-per-use pricing. Clients love the full service, the monthly fees instead of the capital investment, the ease of use, and the guarantee of service (set it and forget it). And you might like more predictable recurring revenue, less churn, upsell potential, and higher customer lifetime value. So how do you get started?
