Benefits of Centralized Billing and Automation
Parallels Business Automation Standard is pre-integrated hosting automation and billing solution that offers a unified platform to manage all hosting types: Domain Registration, SSL Certificates, Shared Hosting, Virtual Private Servers, Virtual Machines and Dedicated Servers. Implementing Parallels Business Automation Standard will streamline all aspects of your business life-cycle including online ordering, billing, service delivery, and service management.
Hosting providers are able to customize, extend, and integrate any service offering with fully re-brandable reseller and customer control panels. Re-sellers are able to independently manage their own offerings through their control center.
The flexible subscription-based billing system included in PBAS allows service providers to bill for setup and recurring fees for hosting plans, individual applications, resources (metered and unmetered), and even custom services. The billing system is fully integrated with automatic provisioning and management.
