What is Web Based Billing Software?

Web based billing software is a convenient alternative to traditional billing software that must be installed on a computer. Instead of an application that takes up space on your device, web based billing software is hosted in the cloud, meaning it is a website that you can visit from any computer. This comes with a variety of benefits ranging from automatic updates, to increased data security, to diminished IT costs.

MuniBilling’s utility billing toolkit is a web based billing software built for towns and utility companies ranging in size from 100-30,000 accounts. The software itself, as well as all of the billing data accessible through the software, is physically stored in servers around the United States. Having the software stored in multiple locations ensures that if disaster strikes at the location of one server, MuniBilling will be unaffected as it can be accessed from another server. The same stands for data backups – if a computer crashes or natural disaster hits the office, all data is safely stored in the cloud and will remain accessible from any computer with an internet connection.
