We've extended the capabilities of our generic import tool recently. Besides unit-based data, you can also import consumption-based billing data!
Billing metered pay-as-you-go charges
Consumption-based billing is anything that is being charged by usage, and not by a number of reserved seats or activated licenses.
More and more cloud services now offer a pay-as-you-go model. This means usage is metered and you only pay for what you use. A well-known example is the Azure Cloud billing model.
The downside is that it can be time-consuming to bill your clients for their used resources each month.
Our goal is to help you improve this process. You can turn your consumption-based billing data into Autotask Contract charges with only a few clicks using our import tool.
How it works
It couldn't be easier:
Step 1: upload your CSV or Excel file containing the usage charges per resource and customer.
Step 2: map the relevant columns to tell us where the find the right information.
