This KB covers the new Billing Batch module.
Here's a summary of the new billing functionality.
The new Billing dashboard now includes:
- The Benchmark
- Latest Billing Batches
- Latest Invoices
What is a 'Batch'?
A batch is a group of financial units (in this case Invoices) that are actioned at the same time rather than immediately.
The Atera billing system allows you to bill some or all of your customers at the same time, and select or remove items from specific contracts and periods, saving hours of your time.
See all of your Service Items, Tickets, Time Entries, and Expenses on the invoice. Then export them directly to your favorite accounting software.
Integrates with your Accounting Software
Export individual invoices or entire batches, directly to your accounting software with a single click.
Atera now integrates directly with:
- QuickBooks Online
- QuickBooks Desktop
- Xero CSV
Note: Tickets are already listed in each batch. This means after you choose them and click on "Save As" they are changed to a 'Billed' status. Once in a 'Billed' status, tickets cannot be re-billed and are not available to edit i.e. the status of the ticket cannot be changed from closed to open.
Inside the new billing system is a Business Intelligence mechanism that takes your hourly rate contracts and compares them to the industry standard.
