Pricing a Subscription-as-a-Service (SaaS) product can be a challenge. Most companies start with a simple user-based license model, paid monthly or annually. Billing then is simply a function based on the number of licenses in the subscription.
But for companies like Addigy, who monitor Apple devices, the billing requirements are more specific to how the service is used.
SaaS companies who have invested in Salesforce as their CRM platform are actually within reach of implementing a usage-based-billing (UBB) solution on Salesforce fairly quickly. The billing account, order, and product information are readily available.
By implementing iDialogue SaaS Quote-to-Cash, Addigy was able to pull in near real-time usage data into their Salesforce Accounts. Standard formula fields are constantly calculating and forecasting future billings based on up-to-date usage data. Time-series usage data is available directly on Salesforce Account records.
The result is more visibility into future billings and elating customers with a flexible business model that allows for variable usage and billing.
This tutorial demonstrates how to generate documents using Salesforce Flow. Checkout our Flow Actions under the "Document" and "Room" categories once iDialogue is installed.
