This type of blended billing is a must-have for business-to-business organizations to grow and prosper. From subscriptions, to usage-based, to hard goods billing, Apttus helps you invoice your customers in the way that works best for them. With the rise of the digital economy you need to support any order, charge model, or channel and ensure you can bill and collect easily without building and maintaining custom code. Key features include:

  • Automatic invoicing for more accurate & efficient billing as invoices are driven based on assets ordered, so any changes to assets owned are automatically computed on the next invoicing run which reduces revenue leakage.
  • Subscription Renewal Optimization for growing recurring revenue from existing customers, improving customer retention and eliminating renewal errors with asset-based ordering and mass renewal management capabilities. Apttus automatically generates renewal opportunities with up-sell and crosssell insights and visibility into contract commitments, expirations and negotiated pricing.
  • Billing flexibility for billing for full orders, partial orders, or pending orders. You’ll also be able to activate orders per line-item and bill per detailed line-items or roll-up to a bundle and you can automatically adjust invoice schedules based on up-grades, down-grades, swaps, add-ons.

From start to finish, Apttus manages the entire Quote-to-Cash process. And unlike other standalone billing systems, Apttus is always in sync with your customer orders, agreements and assets, so you’ll get fewer errors, faster payment and happier customers.

Apttus Billing and Subscription Management is the world’s only billing solution built on your CRM and fully integrated with the entire Quote-to-Cash process.

Benefits of Billing and Subscription Management

 

Automated Billing for Any Business Model

Traditionally, billing information lived in the ERP system, but in order to provide flexibility to the sales team, billing needs to be managed in the front office. So if there are any changes, swaps, deletes, and additions to the order you’ll be able to manage those complexities as they happen and process invoices that both you and your customer can agree on. And to grow your business, you need the unlimited flexibility to offer blended business models of physical goods, services, one-time fees, subscriptions, and professional services. At the end of the day, the goal for effective automated billing is to generate an accurate and easy-to-understand invoice.
