We are so excited to launch our most requested feature as well as let you in on where else we've been working on

    🚫: The entire billing cycle is now complete under QuotingBill with our cancellations module. Easily cancel your customer's recurring products and have a track record of all your customer's cancellations to help your business learn and grow! Learn more about it here!
  • Telecom taxes and how to improve them
    . We partnered with CSI Compliance and Brightlink and had a great talk about dealing with taxing issues you can check out here link for that talk!
We've also been continuously adding improvements to QuotingBill and have added bug fixes and some serious enhancements to the application. Check out the new tables for example 😄!
What we've got coming next!
  1. Bulk Imports:
    We're working on allowing you to easily migrate to QuotingBill with bulk imports! Soon you'll be able to seamlessly make the move to QuotingBill!
  2. Reporting:
    Probably our next most requested feature, we are currently in the planning phase on how to allow you to leverage QuotingBill and get the best reports for your business and get key insights. You can always request features on our roadmap too on https://roadmap.quotingbill.io
  3. Parent/child accounts 👨‍👧:
    Easily establish account hierarchy for your customers in QuotingBill with parent/child accounts! Currently, in our planning phase, parent/child accounts will allow you to consolidate invoices, leave payments to the parent account while being able to manage each child's account independently.
  4. Payment methods:

Want to offer the ability of your customer's using Venmo Wallet or Apple Pay? Our new payment methods feature which is first to come will cover all of that and more! 💰

QuotingBill Mid-December Update: Ingram Micro, address validation & more!
new
Slowing down while picking up the pace
With this new launch, we wanted to emphasize improving the overall QuotingBill experience while slowly introducing new features into the platform. That meant reevaluating existing features and user flows while also releasing new functionality that was requested in the roadmap. We were glad to have met with many of our users to see what was working and what wasn't. As you'll see below a lot of the new quality of life changes we added were to improve system communication to the user. Our goal was to have the system give information and context whenever there's something that might affect the current task they're performing. For example, trying to send a quote while having an accounting software like QuickBooks installed but not configured will send an alert your way saying that you should configure for a seamless experience.
Now for the holiday goodies!
We're so excited to announce our next feature set that is available now on QuotingBill. With this new launch, we wanted to tackle not only improve your experience but also the experience that your customers will have with you using our platform. We also added a new shiny application to continue streamlining your bill to provision process. Here's what we threw into the mix!
  • You can now send your customers access to a portal where they can view and pay their invoices, add payment methods, and pay their balance in full!
  • Through user testing, we saw that we didn't do the best job in communicating how you can superpower your billing experience in QuotingBill with applications installed. So we've added guides and how to's right in the application itself as well as warnings when you don't have applications configured correctly.
  • Ingram Micro has been an integration that's been highly requested on our roadmap. Well, we listened! Now with Ingram Micro in the marketplace you can order, bill, and ship Ingram Micro products to your customers, all in one place. Pretty neat right?
  • Addresses are a finicky thing, aren't they. Misspell a street name and your customer's package can end up on the other side of town. We added address autocomplete and validation to make sure that your customers get your products on time and leaving you worry free!
What's to come!
  • In our next launch we're gonna completely cover the billing experience end to end, and there's no way to do that without cancellations. Manage your cancellations in QuotingBill with the ability to rollback while keeping your bookkeeping and customer management in check.
A word on this year and more
It's no question that this year has definitely been a turbulent year. Funny enough, QuotingBill was born right before we had entered 2020. It's safe to say that this year for us was more than crazy. Who's to know if this is just startup life, life under a major historical event, or a sweet mix of both. Regardless, we've had a blast working on this product and are hyped for what 2021 has to offer. We really do hope that you take the next step with us and join the remote revolution for your business on QuotingBill!

We shifted our focus into adding a few more applications to the marketplace to improve your telephony workflow! These new applications will now allow you to ship hardware, buy numbers and even port-in your customer's numbers! This is what we added:

  • We'd also like to welcome new carriers to the marketplace, Bandwidth and Inteliquent!

On the topic of bugs... 🚫🐞
At the moment, there weren't any major bugs for us to tackle and even moving forward we haven't encountered anything that might need immediate attention. That doesn't mean that we're popping the bottle of champagne just yet however. If you find any bugs or any type of weird behavior from the application please feel free to report them by either contacting or using the chat in the lower right section.
Welcome some new integrations to the marketplace, as well as a few enhancements to some existing apps.
We went kind of ham with the integrations this week and added two whole new applications to the marketplace as well as enhancements to two of our existing applications in the ever-growing marketplace!
All new application, Brightlink numbers is the first on the marketplace to let you order numbers!
We're introducing Brightlink numbers to the marketplace. You'll now be able to order numbers for your customers and provision them from project tasks alongside your other applications! The Brightlink numbers application will still have future features and iterations as we continue to see what we can rock with.
Our first whitelabel — Brightlink PBX
Are you a Brightlink PBX whitelabel partner? Well now you can install the Brightlink PBX Cloud application in the marketplace. Installing this will let you provision Users, domains, numbers and devices to your switch!
Quickbooks Online does taxes?
Did you know that Quickbooks Online offers a simple tax solution? We didn't but now we do! We quickly added it to our Quickbooks Online application feature set which you can now currently use!
Improvements to metered billing
We threw our design engineer at the metered billing application which was past due for a makeover. They did great things to it and heavily simplified the process of billing usage so that your billing experience is frictionless!
What's next
Same deal as last time, we've like to give you a little sneak peek on what's going to be available in the next QuotingBill. Not everything, but enough to keep things interesting!
