Meet our expert team

Since moving to Eclipse we have halved the bill run and have never ever got bills out as early in the month as we do now!  Our team is jumping for joy because they now have two weeks in every month to look at internal processes.  Before it was a vicious circle of completing the bill run, having a week to deal with queries and issue credits and then straight back onto the next bill run.  Now we can breathe.

Paul Hallam

Operations Director

Having a billing partner that works as an extension to our team, who understands the market and whose platform has the flexibility to meet our diverse customer requirements, has been fundamental in achieving our growth. We deal with several large telcos who all seem to struggle with billing, whilst Eclipse NG takes data from 1.9 million of our SIMs and copes admirably.

Tony Mann

Operations Director

As an IT company, we’re passionate about using technology to improve business performance and bring about greater efficiencies for the team. Since partnering Inform Billing we have eradicated manual processing and reduced our resource commitment to billing by 50%. We would definitely recommend them.
