Hubject has introduced invoice management as part of its eRoaming services. The new ‘Invoice Management’ function should simplify – ie. automate – processes for over 1,000 B2B partners. Until now, the manual transfer of charging data has still been necessary in some cases.
Until now, the invoicing process between charging station operators (CPO) and eMobility Service Providers (EMP) has often involved manual work, where the costs for each completed charging process and the tax information had to be entered. This process will now be automated with the new function.
This is not about billing the customer (since this lies with the EMP), but billing in the background between the EMP and CPO. According to Hubject, the tariffs provided by the CPO are now automatically combined with the Charge Detail Records (CDR). This makes it possible to send the final invoice digitally to the EMP. In turn, the CPO receives a monthly overview of all transactions of all EMPs that have taken place in his charging network.
Hubject says that the new Invoice Management function uses the data already available on the platform but links it in a new way, so now the CPO should be able to make the most of the platform with just a few steps. Hubject says that this feature simplifies billing processes, saves time and reduces errors.
“With ‘Invoice Management’, our partners can do business more effectively and efficiently and move electric mobility forward,” says Hubject CTO Carsten Puhl. “Which is – of course – Hubject’s mission.”
