To calculate the cost of services provided to a company, you must generate an invoice. An invoice is a PDF document that shows the cost of consumed services in accordance with a subscription plan assigned to a company.
To create an invoice:
- In the menu on the left, under Reporting click Invoices.
- Open the Invoice Configuration tab.
- Select a client company in the list and click Run.
- Wait until the status of the invoice generation task in the Status column changes to Success.
- Open the All Invoices tab.
- Locate the generated invoice in the list and click the link in the Invoice column to download the invoice in the PDF format.
- Open the downloaded document and check the total amount.
The total amount specified in the invoice must include the charge rate for managed backup services ($50) plus a charge rate for managed VM ($10 per VM) multiplied by the number of managed VMs.
Send a billing notification to a client company:
- On the All Invoices tab, select the generated invoice and click Send.
The invoice will be sent at the email address that you specified in the Company Info settings for the client company at step 2.
- If you specified your own email address for evaluation purposes, open your mail box and check how the notification looks like.
