T-Systems' cloud billing solution – a usage-based billing model – is the answer to modern pay-as-you-use business models.
Cloud Billing solution

Flexible and use-based billing for modern pay-as-you-use business models

Digitization is creating new business models that focus on the use of a certain service as opposed to the purchase of a product.
Pay-as-you-use: customers wish to pay only for the services they actually use. New devices and services facilitate the precise recording of user data according to place and time. Often factors such as current availability, time of year or day, etc., will influence the price of a service. Such factors pose a range of new challenges for the billing process. These in turn require a special billing system able to process large user data volumes and to manage the customer billing process.

Trends & drivers

Innovative cloud billing, leading-edge and individually adaptable
New business models require usage-based billing models. Digitization gives rise to a flood of user data that can then service as the basis for flexible invoicing.

Customer requirements

To offer innovative services, you need to offer usage-based billing. New business models need to be able to develop without the limitations that rigid pricing models cause. Instead of making a high investment, a smart billing solution is sought that can grow together with new business.
