Accessing the relevant CSP billing data to accurately and easily invoice customers, has always been a major problem for Indirect CSP resellers – until now!
As part of its billing services for CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) resellers, Vuzion has developed a range of structured data reports including Periodic Report with Every Invoice, a feature that will provide an export of all CSP billing data, generated with every reseller wholesale CSP invoice.
Julian Dyer, Vuzion Chief Technology Officer, says, “We know what an issue customer invoicing can be for resellers, often involving potentially extensive manual processing and checking.
“And exposure to inaccuracies can lead to revenue leakage and mis-billing, which not only results in cost to the reseller – often huge – but requires time to address – at times an extensive time commitment – and can result in damage to the relationship between reseller and customer.
“At Vuzion, we’re committed to helping resellers improve operational efficiency, and periodic billing data reporting is just one of the features we’re creating to make customer invoicing as easy as possible for our partners. We will shortly, for example, be introducing GoCardless UK & EURO Direct Debit payment processing – as a facility for our resellers to collect payments from their customers.”
The reporting capability features JSON and XML structured data options, and can be used to integrate with reseller internal systems, enabling potential fully automated end-to-end rebilling.
Julian Dyer adds, “The feature puts indirect resellers in a similar state to Microsoft Direct Bill CSPs, with the equivalent of the Microsoft billing and recon files allowing the reseller to effectively re-rate/rebill their customers.
“Further enhancements to this feature, to be delivered over the coming months, include predefined reports, self-serve custom reporting and API access.”
Periodic Report with Every Invoice is available to partners through the Vuzion marketplace, Vuzion CORE – simply log in with your Reseller credentials and go to Account>Billing Data Export.
