LendARR has rebranded to FlexPoint!

When it comes to payments, MSPs need industry specific software

There are a number of factors that make it difficult for MSPs to use generic payments software including:

1. Integrations and Compatibility: MSPs rely on a wide range of tools and systems to deliver their services effectively. These tools include PSA software, remote monitoring and management (RMM) platforms, ticketing systems, and more. However, many generic payments solutions lack seamless integrations with these critical systems, causing inefficiencies in their operations. For example, manually reconciling payments and invoices across different platforms can be time-consuming and prone to errors.

2. Recurring Billing: The recurring nature of billing is a fundamental aspect of MSP operations. Unlike traditional businesses that primarily rely on one-time transactions, MSPs often engage in long-term managed service contracts with their clients. Generic payments solutions may lack the flexibility to accommodate complex recurring billing structures employed by MSPs including autopay, partial payments or pro-rated invoicing for mid-contract changes.

3. Customer Experience: MSPs strive to offer a secure and seamless customer experience and as service based business MSPs need tools that also provide their clients with high quality service. Generic payments solutions often lack the ability to white label or customize the experience for MSPs and their clients. Few have a client portal - a centralized location for clients to review invoices, add payment methods and manage their billing relationship with an MSP, which makes the experience more transactional than relationship based.

Why MSPs Need Industry Specific Payments Software

When it comes to payments, MSPs need industry specific software

Generic vs. industry specific MSP software

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Generic vs. industry specific MSP software

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) play a vital role in supporting businesses by delivering comprehensive IT services. To provide these services MSPs rely on a variety of tools that range from cybersecurity, network monitoring to ticketing and billing. These tools have generally been developed to meet the specific needs of MSPs and their clients, which is why industry specific categories of software have been developed for MSPs over the years, including professional service automation (PSA) software.
