Automate Complex Billing
The Evron Advanced Billing Engine (ABE) has been designed to address the requirements of any business that requires automated recurring billing. The billing is based on periodic input or import of consistent criteria through the use of unlimited billing templates containing unlimited billing criteria.
The Engine is well-suited to businesses that invoices for subscriptions or for any billing requirement that is based on regularly applying external factors such as insurance claims, commissions, and tariffs.
Where Can It Be Used?
Virtually any business that has a structured billing process can benefit from the Evron Billing Engine. Some popular uses may include:
Schedule Based Billing
If you are an organization that gathers information resulting from technical visits by agents performing service or inspections in the field (equipment inspection, testing, certification, etc), you can use Evron Billing Engine to capture these activities and automatically bill them based on pre-set, configurable rules defined in a Fee Schedule.
If you are an organization that invoices agents based on their reported activities (sales, calls, milestone achievement, etc), you can use Evron Billing Engine to capture these activities and automatically bill them based on pre-set, configurable rules.
If you invoice your customers periodically based on a contract or license that includes pre-set criteria, such as square footage of selling space, location, number of units, etc., you can use the Evron Billing Engine to capture these details and automatically create invoices. Note that if any parameters change, these can easily be documented and the billing will be adjusted on the fly.
If you invoice your customers based on reported sales of certain categories of merchandise, use the Evron Billing Engine to keep the billable categories straight in the system. Your customer fills in a simple form and the system does the rest!

The Billing Reporting Workbench is also used for entering adjustment reports which serve as the basis for adjustment invoices or credit memos according to the need.
- Billing Report Import: This is used for import mapping and to import electronic Report files provided in CSV or any standard format. Once imported, they are reviewed, validated and transferred for further processing in the Billing Reporting
- Batch Invoicing: Based on reports entered in the Billing Reporting Workbench, batch invoicing for one or more templates and for multiple customers can be created. Billing Batch Invoicing can also be used for the generation of Provisional and Fixed Amount Invoices.
