  • Precision Telecom Technologies Wins 2020 Visionary Spotlight Award

    ChannelVision Magazine has honored Precision Telecom Technologies with a 2020 Visionary Spotlight Award for back office and operational support systems (OSS) innovation. Precision won the award for enhancing its QuickBooks integration to support full line-item importing and exporting into a new client’s QuickBooks desktop system. This gave the client the ability to export all invoices, SKUs, customers, payments, address changes and more – ensuring access to details and reporting without having to manually enter hundreds or thousands of records every month. The granular detail was important because the client’s executive leadership needed it for analysis and planning during a high-growth read more

  • Precision Integrates ArcGIS Mapping Platform into TBS

    Precision has integrated ArcGIS mapping software into its Telecom BackOffice Solution (TBS). The new integration gives network-provider clients the ability to document their fiber routes, switches, connection points and other facilities over a web-accessible map. The integration was originally implemented to meet the needs of Prodigi, a long-time client with growing fiber routes and facilities in West Virginia and Maryland. The company is leveraging the ArcGIS mapping integration to: Map customer locations for more efficient service scheduling and truck rolls Determine whether a location can be reached with fiber Generate actionable data for network planning purposes Quickly discover circuits and read more

  • Precision Announces QuickBooks Integration with Line-Item Exporting Capabilities Many of Precision’s new service-provider clients bill manually from their QuickBooks accounting software. In most scenarios, they’re growing fast and eager to upgrade to an advanced billing solution. There’s just one problem: Very few Software as a Service (SaaS) billing companies offer QuickBooks integration with full line-item exporting capabilities. Instead, they provide summary exports into QuickBooks. With summary exporting, a service provider billing 500 accounts in a bill run, for example, creates a single invoice that represents all the revenue in that billing cycle and exports it as one entry into QuickBooks. Similarly, received payments are grouped together on read more

  • Precision Integrates LiveChat into TBS Last year we rolled out a LiveChat feature so clients could easily connect with our Client Solutions Team to get help in real time.  It has been a huge hit.  Clients increasingly use the feature to get fast responses to questions and how to’s.  For many, LiveChat has become the preferred method of communicating with Precision personnel. We are excited to announce that we’ve integrated LiveChat into our TBS Customer and Agent Portals so clients can offer this support channel to their customers and channel partners. There are three LiveChat subscription plans to choose from based on your desired read more

  • One Payment Processor to Rule Them All To serve the needs of clients, we have integrated our Telecommunications BackOffice Solution (TBS) with 18 payment processors over the years. Payment processing is a commodity, and the industry’s salespeople are aggressive. We’ve seen many quotes promising savings that don’t materialize. We’ve dealt with API integrations that aren’t stable, are difficult to use and offer limited functionality. And support levels are generally fair to poor. Recently, however, we started doing business with one payment processing vendor (who shall remain anonymous in this public notice) that truly impressed us. The company’s platform, services, support and pricing are a cut above read more

  • New Release Notes: The Greatest Hits from April and May

    Occasionally we highlight some of the more important updates to our Telecommunications BackOffice System (TBS). They’re our Greatest Hits, so to speak, and worth a mention here. Streamlined eBill Resend Capability Our clients now can easily resend a billing email to a customer. Prior to our April update, the process was more time-consuming and therefore a trouble point for clients whose customers’ spam software sometimes capture ebills. Clients would have to log into TBS, find the account, download the invoice, compose a new email and attach the invoice again. Now clients can simply lookup the account and resend the original read more

  • Precision Introduces Live Chat Feature in TBS

    In our latest effort to improve the client experience, we have rolled out a new chat feature in our TBS system. Precision’s support personnel frequently interact with clients over the phone and via our support system. This additional channel of communication was launched to assist clients who need a quick answer or clarification as they are working inside of TBS. “We noticed how significant multitasking can be in support scenarios so we rolled out this solution to help our clients resolve minor issues rapidly,” explains Stephanie Smith, VP of Client Solutions for Precision. “We value our clients immensely and think read more
