New Module Lets MSPs Bill for Multiple Accounts Within the Help Desk
PLEASANTON, Calif. — November 8, 2012 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the addition of the Billing module to ServiceDesk Plus-MSP, its complete help desk for managed service providers (MSPs). The new billing functionality lets MSPs enable the managed services business model through accurate billing for multiple accounts from within ServiceDesk Plus-MSP, so MSPs no longer need to juggle multiple tools and manually track and bill for services rendered. A free trial version of the help desk is available at http://ow.ly/eVItN.
For MSPs, billing is often a time consuming, manual process that may include third-party invoicing applications, homegrown or custom reporting tools, Excel spreadsheets and/or the help of accountants or bookkeepers. Instead of spending their time solving customers' problems, MSP technicians are forced to spend time updating their reporting apps. The new billing feature automates the entire billing process by helping technicians track time spent, work load and expenses for each request MSPs perform.
"Billing is a critical component of any business, and the ability to track and bill your clients is important in the managed services business model," said Jayakumar Karumbasalam, product manager of ServiceDesk Plus–MSP. "Almost all of our customers generate reports from our software and employ some sort of manual data entry process to bill their clients. Now, ServiceDesk Plus-MSP users can take advantage of the new billing feature to increase their technicians’ productivity and eliminate manual processes for generating bills, thereby saving a lot of time and money."
ServiceDesk Plus-MSP Billing module allows you to:
ServiceDesk Plus-MSP’s billing functionality has been thoughtfully built specifically for MSPs so they can save time, resources, apps and money with this integrated value.
