Wholesale telecommunications provider UC-Reseller is hoping to make it easier for MSPs to enter the unified communications market with the launch of a new telecommunications billing platform that is claimed to remove the complexity and bill percentage-based usage charges typical of existing billing solutions.
In addition, UC-Billing allows MSPs to bill existing services, such as support, Office 365 subscriptions, internet connectivity and web hosting, alongside their telecoms billing.
According to UC-Reseller, setting up UC-Billing for the first bill run is just a question of registering the client, adding services, detailing the Caller Line Identities and loading and processing the Call Detail Reports (CDR).
UC-Billing will then produce a branded invoice, email it and a full CDR to the reseller’s client (or let the reseller use their own SMTP server) and collect payment automatically via Go Cardless.
UC-Reseller says that the simplicity of UC-Billing frees MSPs from having to make the choice between mastering the complexities of telecommunications billing regulations/complex platforms and becoming an agent of a larger telecommunications company, with small monthly commissions and the risk of losing control of a client.
UC-Reseller is currently offering resellers five clients free of charge for the first 3 months, after which there will be a monthly service subscription and no usage charge.
