While it’s clear that both a business and its customers can benefit from a billing automation system, what makes these systems work? Through the use of a billing platform API and connections to other business software, organizations can allow information to flow through the system from its initial entry point. For example, customer information can move directly from a shopping cart to a CRM, business intelligence platform, payment gateway and billing system. Automatically figure tax rates in different jurisdictions and even other countries by connecting to a sales tax system. The collection of this data is also integrated, which means the updates and corrections entered in one system will also migrate to others, saving time and reducing the chance of errors. This integration can produce the synergistic benefits of less work and improved data quality throughout the entire company. Ensuring that this data is of the highest quality reduces the workload for an organization at large that would otherwise be spent retracing steps and making good on mistakes as a result of incorrectly collected data. No customer wants to have to bare this pain, which is why billing automation systems are just as valuable for the customers of any organization.
