If you run an IT support service business, you’re no stranger to billing headaches.

For outsourced IT companies, this can lead to confusion come invoice and accounting time. What if there was a better way to manage recurring payments at your IT business?
In today’s IT service industry, clients have come to expect flexibility. One-time projects, metered/per-unit projects, and set-fee recurring projects are all common in the IT landscape.
But with flexibility comes a cost: complexity.
With a client base using a variety of different billing methods, invoicing and accounting can be tough. Keeping track of metered/per-unit tasks is time-consuming. Invoicing generates a mountain of spreadsheet data. And occasionally, clients will neglect to pay bills on time.
If you aren’t offering a variety of different payment plans, you’re missing out on potential revenue. And if you are, then you have a mountain of financial documentation to manage.
What’s needed is a better way to manage multiple payment plans, including:

With ChargeOver you can give your clients metered, recurring or one-time plans, and everything in between. This helps you attract new business from clients who require specific payment terms.
ChargeOver automatically generates invoice forms, and downloads financial data to your accounting software when an invoice is paid. This saves you the time you would normally spend manually creating invoices and managing accounting data, freeing you to focus on more important areas of your business.
