Ottawa, Ontario, January 8, 2015 - Enterprise jBilling Software Ltd., a leader and pioneer of open source enterprise billing has released jBilling Community Edition version 3.3.1. (Please note that version 3.2 was skipped as it would have postponed this release.)
jBilling’s Community Edition 3.3.1 comes with many new features including: Discounts, Collections Process, Custom Notifications, SureTax Integration, and updated Billing Process.
In addition, there are enhancements to existing features such as: Meta Fields, Notifications, Payments, GUI, MySQL Support, and Error Reporting.
“jBilling is focused on giving our community access to some of the latest and greatest features our software has to offer,” says Emiliano Conde, Founder & President of Enterprise jBilling Software Ltd.. “These new features and enhancements make this free edition of our open source software an exciting version for both our developers and users.”
jBilling Community Edition new features:
Billing Process. Advanced logic allows the customer's billing cycle and the company's billing frequency to be controlled independently. This new functionality also provides more billing schedule options such as, weekly on choice of day, or semi monthly on the 1st and 16th, 2nd and 17th, and so on. Pro-rating is also now configured from the user interface, with the option of being turned on or off at the Order level.
Discounts Module. Create discounts to apply to any combination of products on a purchase order. Discounts can be configured as amounts or percentages, and as one-time, time-limited or anytime values.
Custom Notifications. Create custom notifications via the user interface and link them to any new or existing jBilling Internal Event using our EventBasedCustomNotification plug-in.
SureTax Integration. Configure plug-ins to support a seamless integration between SureTax and jBilling, where tax calculations are fetched from a SureTax account and included in a jBilling invoice.
Customizable Collections & Automatic-Payment Configuration. This feature, which replaces the previous Ageing feature, allows customers to create as many steps as a company requires, name each with the company’s terminology, and control notifications, payment attempts and account suspension as desired for each one. The timing of Automated Payment attempts are now fully configurable with this feature, instead of being automatically triggered at the time of billing.
Payment Enhancements. Support partial refunds on any payment made on an invoice.
jBilling Community Edition Feature Enhancements:
Meta Field Enhancements. Configure meta fields for main areas of the system, including Invoice and Payments.
Notification Enhancement. Email copies of notifications to different users associated to a customer’s account such as: Parent, Partner, and Admin.
Add Custom Notification per Ageing Step. Configure the UserAgeingNotificationTask plug-in to assign custom notifications per collection step.
jBilling User Interface. An improved GUI with a fresh new look and feel.
Improved support for MySQL. Handle transactions around Payments and the Billing Process to support MySQL specific limitations around nested transactions.
Error reporting. Error message and reporting enhancements simplify debugging processes.
