Addressing the Issue of Consumption Leakage

The MSP sector primarily revolves around delivering vital services to clients, typically on a subscription basis. These services cover a broad spectrum, including Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Nonetheless, the accurate management and billing of these diverse services can be a complicated task, often prone to errors and inefficiencies.

The company in this case study was facing a common challenge in the industry—consumption leakage. This refers to the revenue loss caused by underbilling, billing errors, or failing to capture all billable events accurately. For an MSP, this can result in significant revenue shortfalls and strained customer relationships.

To address their consumption leakage issues, the company turned to BluIQ, BluLogix’s subscription billing platform known for its robust features and flexibility. Here’s how BluIQ made a difference:
