Day in the Life of a Billing Manager

Behind every well-run financial department, billing managers play a crucial role in ensuring smooth operations. They ensure that invoices are generated accurately, payments are processed efficiently, and compliance is maintained seamlessly. But what does a typical day look like for these professionals? Let’s walk through a day in the life of a billing manager.

Starting the Day Engaging with the Dashboard

The first task of the day begins with diving into their dashboard. Take the Vertex Billing Manager dashboard, for example—it’s an invaluable tool that keeps billing managers organized with essential notifications and reminders. After setting up a new client in the system and collecting their basic demographics and authorization details, their time records are logged to facilitate billing.

Billing managers focus on key performance indicators (KPIs) such as outstanding invoices, payment statuses, and alerts for overdue accounts. Reviewing billing reports is crucial for tracking the previous day’s transactions, identifying discrepancies, and ensuring the accuracy of billing processes.

Invoice Generation and Payment Processing Management

Billing managers play a critical role in overseeing billing operations, which encompasses tasks like invoice generation, payment processing supervision, and collections management. It is vital for clients and DSPs to log their service sessions to ensure accurate billing invoices are created. Each service record should be meticulously reviewed to ensure compliance with company policies and regulations, swiftly addressing any errors or discrepancies that may arise.

Upon reciept of electronic payments, billing managers are promptly notified. When billed through 837, software such as Vertex Billing Manager receives the electronic payment, allowing for the matching of payments to services through the assignment of a posting date. Our electronic billing solution accommodates manual payments when necessary. 

Compliance and Reporting

Another critical responsibility is ensuring compliance with financial regulations and company policies. Billing managers prepare regular reports for management on billing metrics, revenue forecasts, and cash flow projections. Using tools like the Vertex Billing Manager reporting tool, they can compile detailed reports on billing metrics, KPIs, and financial performance to present to senior management for decision-making purposes.

Identifying areas for process improvement, automation opportunities, and cost-saving measures are ongoing tasks aimed at increasing efficiency within the billing department.

End-of-Day Review and Finalization

The end of the day involves follow-ups and final reviews. Billing managers follow up on outstanding invoices, late payments, and unresolved billing issues to ensure timely resolution and maintain cash flow as well as ensuring all billing activities are accurately documented, invoices are sent out promptly, and records are kept for auditing purposes are essential steps in the end-of-day review.
