AcuCloud Billing provides a tenant billing option that automatically aggregates meter readings and provides professional electronic utility bills to building tenants. The data collection and billing processes are automated, eliminating time-consuming meter reading, data entry, and invoicing.
Comprehensive tenant billing is critical to ensuring that tenants are contributing fairly to overall utility expenses and is a key component to successful tenant management. Where flat rate billing may be convenient, it does not take into account individual tenant energy consumption or rate structures. The AcuCloud provides a complete tenant billing solution that automatically aggregates meter readings and provides professional-grade utility bills to building tenants. The data collection and billing processes are automated, eliminating time-consuming meter reading, data entry, and invoicing.
Automatically Generate Invoices and Send via Email
Eliminate the errors and inconvenience associated with manual data collection and billing. AcuCloud automates the billing process, creating invoices based on custom rate structures and formulas to suit any unique situation. Accurate, timely bills are automatically emailed to tenants.
Industry-Standard Validation, Estimation, & Editing (VEE) Functionality
Data loss or disruption can result from network downtime, human error, computer faiIure, or other factors and can lead to data issues that require correction. These issues are even more critical in billing or revenue applications. In case of data interruption, Accuenergy applies a smart algorithm that follows industry best-practice to estimate and validate all energy data. Our methodology ensures that high-quality, accurate information is always available, keeping the tenant billing process on schedule.
Flexible Tenant Billing
Easily adapt to match any unique billing scenario
Simple Energy Consumption
Perfect for residential billing scenarios, calculate simple electrical consumption over a typical billing cycle (such as 30 days) or for custom lengths to accommodate move in or move out schedules. Input a kWh charge based on local utility rates and easily add energy surcharges or other fees to accommodate a range of custom billing requirements.
Time-of-Use Rate Structures
Many utilities are shifting to a time-of-use, or TOU, rate structure that varies the rate for electricity throughout the day to encourage customers to consume energy when demand is at its lowest. AcuCloud can accommodate detailed time-of-use rates broken down by 30-minute intervals for each day of the week. Quickly customize On Peak, Mid Peak, and Off Peak rates to match the local utility's specifications.
Consumption for Individual Tenant Spaces
Ideal for in situations where individual rooms make up a larger tenant space, such as a student residence hall, track consumption and generate bills for each tenant based on actual monthly electrical consumption. Invoiced amounts can be divided equitably among multiple tenants to suit any specialized arrangement.
Energy & Water Consumption in Mixed Use Buildings
Mixed-use facilities that combine commercial and residential spaces have unique, multi-layered rate requirements. Easily divide facilities by property type and accurately bill each for actual consumption across multiple utilities. Add delivery charges, taxes, and other fees to a single, straightforward invoice that includes a comprehensive breakdown for all services.
Generate Invoices for All Utilities
Beyond electricity, AcuCloud can also be used to bill for water, sewer, gas, or other utilities. Easily calculate charges for single or two tier systems by implementing customizable rates, threshold amounts, taxes, and fees to generate a precise invoice for each tenant. Combine charges for all services into one, professional bill.
