Top Three Things to Consider When Choosing a New Billing System

Are you having problems with your current billing system and finally ready to make the switch? If you answered ’Yes’ to this question, then you’ve overcome the first hurdle. The next, and often most difficult, hurdle is choosing the right billing system to meet your unique needs. Integrating a new billing system can be a long, challenging and frustrating process to say the least. And with so many vendors vying for your attention, it can be hard to look past all of the bells and whistles and choose the right one. However, choosing a new billing system doesn’t have to be so difficult. Below are three things to consider before making your final decision.

  1. Flexibility: You need a fast, easy and flexible way to bill your customers. At GLDS, customers have the option of a “do-it-yourself” or turnkey billing system. Its stand-alone billing solution, WinCable, offers greater operational control and is less restrictive than any other system currently on the market. Our cloud-based billing solution, WinCable in the Cloud, is designed to give customers all the key functionally they need, without a lot of extra features they won’t use.
  2. Innovation: GLDS is the only billing vendor offering fully integrated, real-time subscriber authorization. With WinCAP, not only do customers have access to online content immediately, but content providers are granted a single point of contact for authorizing content.  Just one way a smaller, more flexible company is able to innovate at a much faster pace than larger, more cumbersome companies.
  3. Compliance: It’s critical for cable operators to safeguard sensitive data. With WinPay from GLDS operators are able to securely process customer payments via their WinCable billing and subscriber management system, which are together PCI-compliant.
