Ubersmith Adds Turnkey Billing for Amazon Web Services during AWS re:Invent 2018

Ubersmith, an INAP company and a global leader in subscription business management software for the cloud and beyond, today announced a new 4.3 version of its product that includes the ability to bill for Amazon Web Services (AWS), a range of other billing enhancements and faster performance. The new version is now available.

"With added billing support for a leading hyperscale public cloud provider, we now provide automated usage-based billing for AWS and OnApp-based clouds plus bandwidth, virtualization, power, backup and support," said Kurt Daniel, CEO of Ubersmith. "This strengthens our position as a leading cloud billing, infrastructure and operations software provider with capabilities for sales quoting, order management, infrastructure management and help desk ticketing."

"We previously had no automated way to bill our customers for AWS and are looking forward to taking advantage of this new capability in the Ubersmith software," said Mark Keymer, chief operating officer, Vivio Technologies in Walla Walla, Washington, an Ubersmith customer. "So, for our company this new feature represents the opportunity to expand our services to customers."

What's New in 4.3

The billing for AWS includes compute, storage, database, network connectivity and other services. AWS has over 100 services, with some being available in as many as 19 zones globally, resulting in a large amount of service-zone combinations. Ubersmith enables its customers to create a service (or services) based on AWS, add their positive or negative markup if any, and automatically bill and receive payment for delivering those capabilities.

Multi-cloud vendors, datacenter providers, enterprise IT departments, managed service providers (MSPs) and other types of organizations will be most interested in the new offering.

The Ubersmith Client Manager offers complete billing and customer lifecycle control and now offers usage plan update propagation, client relationship reassignments, better domain renewals and invoice run failure notification. Ubersmith's plug-in system has also added a few enhancements for developers.

Additionally, users will experience greater responsiveness and faster performance of the application as a result of transitioning to the PHP 7.1 programming language.
