Tech Appreciation: When Great Detail and Invoicing Build the Customer Experience

In today’s lightspeed demand for IT support services. How does the transactional process keep up? Particularly as a Managed Service Provider, effective, precise and easy invoicing is an important challenge all small and medium-sized businesses face. As a business owner, freelancer or Financial Controller, it’s not something you take lightly. Sending out a good invoice can mean faster payment, a return customer and a valuable touch-piece that reiterates your value.

Vision Computer Solutions’ Controller Annie Stewart understands the challenges in place. The method of collecting payment is a sensitive one and the methods our accounting department uses to invoice our clients is a reflection of the company as a whole. Here are some potential problems and pain points to be wary of:

  • Vague description of the product or service
  • Incorrect invoice number or purchase order
  • Missing details
  • Sending invoices to the wrong company or person
  •  Misuse of your invoices

For Stewart, ConnectWise Automation and CloudConsole simplify the customer experience. As a cloud solution provider, Vision Computer Solutions benefits from proactive monitoring of every Office365 & Azure License authentication of every billing cycle. When CloudConsole automates the billing process, Stewart can save time counting each specific user, and more time delivering accurate information about our client’s usage. CloudConsole also recognizes when your user’s billing cycle is accurate or missing some information based on usage for that month. This kind of predictability in your accounting department will be appreciated by your customer, especially if you’re agreeing to terms with IT services that include capped licensing for users.

Want your customers to pay you on time, or even ahead of schedule? With ConnectWise Automation, invoice billing mistakes that slow down the transaction process are now error-free and easier to understand from the clients perspective.
