Time to consider a Billing Automation Solution for More Agile Billing

Time to consider a Billing Automation Solution for More Agile Billing

You discovered it's time to update your billing system - a common issue that many businesses face - as the current system is longer meeting your current business needs.  

 We understand that deciding on a new system comes with its challenges. That's why we have reached out to our experts to provide you with useful insights and practical advice for selecting a new billing system for your recurring revenue business. Read on to discover their tips.  

Look at What Billing problem You Want to Solve 

 To effectively address your billing challenges, start by identifying the specific problem you need to solve. Is it solely a billing matter or does it involve other monetization aspects such as: 

  • managing pricing, for example, customer-specific prices or various pricing models
  • contract lifecycle management, 
  • managing billing data, maybe from multiple sources 
  • managing multiple invoicing and payment channels
  • revenue recognition
  • lack of transparency and trust in billing and reporting.
Additionally, evaluate your current systems to determine their ability to handle the issue. Keep in mind that conventional ERP systems lack the flexibility needed to optimize your more demanding billing process, so rather look for a complementary solution than an ERP replacement.


Think Beyond Today: Plan for Your Billing Needs 3-4 Years Ahead 

A common mistake is to select a system that is filling the current needs, and maybe those even just. But business evolves all the time and so do the pricing and billing needs. The importance of billing data and analytics is increasing, so ensure you will select a future-proof system to guarantee the pricing and billing capabilities also for years to come.

  • Don't settle for a quick fix to your billing problems now. Instead, envision what you'll need in a billing solution several years down the line. 
  • A reliable billing system can adapt to new pricing and earning models that you may not have considered before.
  • The importance of data is increasing. With data, often usage-based pricing models are also common. So ensure both data and pricing model capability and flexibility for the future.

Don't Settle for Less: Test Your Billing System's Use Cases 

When selecting a new billing system, don't just go for a quick demo. Instead, challenge your vendor to show you how their system can tackle the issues that have been causing you headaches. Make sure it can co-exist with your IT infrastructure and prove to be a sustainable fit for your business in the long term. 

Get to Know Your Billing System Provider 

Before committing to a long-term partnership with a billing system provider, take the time to ensure they are a fit for both your business needs and your culture. Building a strong relationship with your vendor is paramount to the success of your investment. 

Who are the key contacts, and can they offer the services you need in a fashion that fits your needs? Often this is overlooked in systems selection but turns out to be crucial for the rollout success. Give the relationship some thought in the selection process.
