Saas billing software Subscription platform recurring billing

As your SaaS business grows and you start scaling, two things happen: the pressure on your tech stack rises, and the workload on your employees increases. Subscription billing complexity reaches new heights, pushing you to explore new setups or solutions.

Maybe you are moving from a manual setup to an automated one, or perhaps you are ready to explore a different subscription billing platform to help you handle new challenges? Whichever the case, see why Upodi can be your best partner on this journey.

 

2.4 People before technology

1. People before technology


Technology should serve people, not the other way around. While we put a lot of effort into making sure our platform delivers, we strive to maintain simplicity and user-friendliness.

Our goal is to present you with features that bring value but not to stress out your employees. We ensure you get onboarded swiftly, start benefiting from our software from the get-go, and get timely support when needed. There will be no forced implementation of other tools or companies.

2.4 Subscriptions at the core

We focus on what we do best - subscriptions, and our product is dedicated solely to recurring billing and subscription management. You will not have to implement a clunky system with unnecessary add-ons that slow down processes and mess up your existing setup. 

Upodi integrates seamlessly with most accounting ERPs (Enterprise Resource Planning) and any PSPs (Payment Service Providers) you might need. We automate your manual work of subscription bookkeeping, subscription management, and payment tracking to help you efficiently secure, retain and grow your revenue.

We know how complex billing can get as you grow your SaaS business. The number of subscriptions and the volume of transactions keeps rising, putting a strain on your accounting team. With Upodi, you can automate invoicing and even customize it to your preference.

No more invoicing that’s a burden to your employees and costs you extra resources. Easily send out company-branded invoices to your customers using Upodi. You decide how much and when your subscribers should pay, and we take care of invoicing.

Parent billing and complex customer hierarchies are also supported to adjust for in-direct and direct purchase channels because revenue can have multiple streams.

Our platform has automated charge claims, reclaims, and dunning, ensuring that payments go through and you don’t miss out on any revenue. Upodi will promptly communicate to your customers should there be any issues with their chosen payment method or credit card.
