We’ve made billing via OrderFlow much more intuitive and powerful by allowing customers to generate printable invoice reports. Billing metrics and rates can be defined in the same way as before, however, the generated billing entries are now associated with a per-organisation invoice record for each billing week or month.
Once the billing period is complete, the customer is able to approve the invoice, allowing for a final invoice report to be created. At any point prior to approval, a provisional invoice report can be generated, or new billing entries can be generated based on modified billing metrics or rates.
We’ve also allowed for finer grained reporting of the data that’s used to create each billing entry. For example, if the customer is using price breaks or applying activity-based price differentials (for example, applying different rates to priority and normal shipments), then each element used to derive a billing total is now clearly displayable on both the user interface and in the billing reports.
In addition, we’ve added improvements to billing metric and rate management and testing, making the billing functionality more intuitive and easier to use.
