The Advantages Of The ConnectBooster and QuoteWerks Integration
Imagine if your MSP's quoting tools could automatically share information with your payment systems. Eliminating people from that data "relay" process can speed up billing and reduce the number of human errors that can lead to frustration for you, your team members, and your clients. Automation is the key to success.
The more MSP business tools you can integrate into your service operations, the less "hands" your team will need to accomplish their work. That philosophy is particularly valid when it comes to quoting and payment systems. The advantages you gain with a ConnectBooster to QuoteWerks integration can be substantial, especially when you properly link and configure those connections − a relatively easy task for any IT services professional.
Any MSP can enjoy those benefits. After setting up the QuoteWerks integration with ConnectBooster, you can import and save accepted quotes and payment information into the BNG or ConnectBooster secure payment gateway. That initial step opens the door to a plethora of other features.
For example, you can add payment records in QuoteWerks when setting up auto agreements. That means your employees will no longer have to repeatedly ask clients to submit sensitive credit and banking information. In addition to reducing a big security concern for MSPs, that feature eliminates manual entry errors that frequently occur during the data collection process, as well as the need to login to your payment portal (ever again). Not to mention an integration with your accounting software also increases your companies efficiency. Eliminating the quote of reconciling that quote in your preferred accounting software, ensure your books can be updated and documented as closely as possible.
The ConnectBooster integration with QuoteWerks creates time all around on your proposals and sales quotes. The seamless transfer of information lets your team members focus more on clients' technical needs instead of spending endless hours working their phones and keyboards collecting the same data each month. Why have the same conversations every time your clients procure new products or services?

What is one of the benefits of a quoting software? To see line-by-line what value your services will bring to a prospect? Set upfront expectations of what a partnership with your business will look like? Removing any difficulties for prospects to accept and pay the quote immediately has long-lasting effects on your sales cycle.

Even better, if they have sticker shock, a QuoteWerks billing integration can allow a business to take a partial payment initially and give them a longer period to pay.
This automation doesn't end there. One of the big hassles for billing department down the road is getting future payments. Here's the power a quoting tool integration, certain QuoteWerks payment integration partners have the ability to save customers' payment method for future payments, saving your accounting team time on the phone requesting a payment method, all completely saved in a secure PCI Compliant Vault.
