MCSJ Utility Billing is fully integrated with MCSJ Finance, MCSJ Work Orders, and MCSJ Inventory Control. Accrued revenue and cash receipts are posted to the revenue accounts properly upon user verification. Completed work orders are posted to the accounts automatically and meters can be tracked through the inventory module that links to the accounts payable system.
Keep payment history and meter readings for an unlimited number of years. Meter readings can be estimated based on past data or even several periods of consumption. Track a customer's payment history and print payment history reports for disputed bills and/or payments.
The system has the ability to integrate with manual, touch pad, or radio reads. All major meters and almost all smaller meters are supported in the billing system. Meter readings from third party companies can also be imported into the system. There is no need to manually enter meter reading data.
Bill up to four different service types such as water, sewer, electric, trash, and other service types. There are an unlimited number of rate codes. Rate code types include consumption based, flat rate, EDU's, and percentage based. Multiple rate codes per service type per account allow the user to track many different types of bills under one type of service. There is also back flow billing and tracking available.
There are many bill layout options such as laser generated postcards, self-mailers, single or multiple stubs, and 8.5" x 11" formats. Direct debit and bar coding for bills are included as part of the system.
All payments can be posted to a batch or posted on-line. Data entry is minimized with the bar coded bill. All transactions for the account are available in the payment window along with user defined messages for each account. All receipts post to the revenue module upon user verification.
