Subscription and Recurring Billing within Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM – A Quick Overview!

Subscription and Recurring Billing

SaaS subscription model allows businesses to sell licenses and subscriptions for B2B software services on a recurring basis. Providing organizations with a predictable revenue source, better customer engagement, lowered customer churn, revenue growth possibilities, and enhanced forecasting.

According to Gartner, 75% of organizations selling directly to consumers will offer subscription services. The subscription business model is clearly here to stay. It, therefore, becomes imperative to understand potential pitfalls and challenges to subscription billing:

Scalability: As the number of customers increases, billing systems must be geared to handle volumes. It can become increasingly difficult to manage the billing and invoicing process without delays and errors.

Billing and invoicing errors: Incorrect billing or invoicing can consequently lead to customer dissatisfaction and potential loss of revenue.

Complexity of managing multiple pricing plans: Offering different pricing plans can be complex and time-consuming to manage, especially if the plans have different billing cycles or require different levels of customization.

Adopting a billing and subscription management automation tool can help you resolve billing bottlenecks by automating many of the manual tasks associated with billing. Ways in which a billing automation tool can help, include:

  • Facilitating Scalability:  Scale the billing process, allowing SaaS providers to handle a larger number of customers without adding additional staff.
  • Improving accuracy:  Reduce the risk of errors by automating the calculation of charges, taxes, and discounts. This can help to improve the accuracy of invoices and reduce the need for manual adjustments.
  • Integration with external systems: Integrate with other systems such as CRM, ERP, and accounting systems, which can help streamline the overall process and improve efficiency.

So, what’s a great billing automation tool that can be integrated with Dynamics 365 CRM to automate manual tasks related to subscription and billing operations such as generating invoices, sending reminders, offering different pricing plans for different products, and processing payments, then you are in luck.
