Simplified Client Billing Solution for IT Services Companies Looking to Increase Profits From Manage

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced a new Billing module for ServiceDesk Plus-MSP, which allows IT systems integrators and resellers to greatly simplify their billing processes for managed services.


The new billing functionality lets Managed Services Providers (MSPs) remotely manage their client IT systems and networks, monitor and track incidents, and then accurately bill for services rendered. All actions are carried out within ServiceDesk Plus-MSP, by the team member responding to the client incident.


The entire billing process is dramatically simplified, with the solution helping technicians track the time spent, workload and expenses for each request that they perform for clients.


A free trial version of the solution is available at http://ow.ly/eVItN.


Alex D Paul, Director - ITSM Products at ManageEngine commented, “Keeping track of client billing can be very labour intensive. ServiceDesk Plus now offers the IT systems integrators and MSPs a completely streamlined workflow, so as soon as a client incident occurs, it can be accurately tracked, resolved, and billed. This not only speeds up the entire process, it allows providers to service more clients without increasing headcount.”


ServiceDesk Plus-MSP is web-based, ITIL-ready, help desk software. It includes integrated asset management built specifically for managed service providers. The solution has been designed to handle multiple accounts in a single help desk so that MSPs don’t have to juggle multiple software applications.


It is bundled with time saving features like incident management, account management, asset management, knowledge base, service level agreements, remote control management, and purchase and contract management.


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.


Jayakumar Karumbasalam, product manager of ServiceDesk Plus–MSP commented,

“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 technician productivity and eliminate manual processes for generating bills, thereby saving a lot of time and money.”
