•gran·u·lar (adj.)

highly detailed, having many small and distinct parts

You’re going to read that word quite a bit because asset billing is all about the details.

A wide array of businesses today maintaining sizable, pricey and often remote assets are diving deeper into technology for finance operations due to expanding contractual dimensions and the increased complexity in billing and global supply chains. The domain of asset-dense organizations facing this challenge goes far beyond construction and car rental agencies to include everything from agriculture, medical equipment, hardware/software, people staffing, entertainment, storage, security and Internet-of-Things-enabled (IoT) devices.

These businesses are transitioning from unsophisticated legacy processes to more detailed and analytical tools not only to handle today’s complex demands, but improve the customer experience as well as the performance and retention of their assets. In doing so, however, they face the realization a single solution can’t do everything.

  • Your ERP may have an asset management module, but each asset needs billing rules and terms applied to get to that end result
  • Any of those assets may require flexible pricing considerations
  • Your ERP is not capable of handling recurring billing tied to an asset
  • Asset billing requires detail at a, you guessed it, granular level

Modern Challenges

Given this challenge, more businesses are realizing specialized asset billing has become a necessity to manage their significant investments in capital assets effectively with an eye toward profitability.

Here’s a typical asset billing scenario: Your customer places an order for X number of pieces of equipment to be dropped off at Y location and they lease those assets for Z years, all billed based on a granular level of data. Why is this important?

Depending on the industry, the nature of your asset may have different criteria and all may be billed at different price points. By having that extra bit of detail calculated, being as specific as possible, you can maximize the value of the asset and bill what it is properly worth rather than leaving money on the table.

The Benefits of Deep Asset Knowledge

Additional advantages of tracking your assets and billing at a granular level include:

Efficiently determine the most profitable of your asset pool based on knowledge of revenue data per asset

Clearly track the effectiveness of different promotions run within your asset pool

Effectively analyze your company’s purchasing decisions given your knowledge of asset performance
