Time and Billing Software

Time and billing software is a generic term for the type of software used by professional services companies. A professional services company performs “desk-based” work, such as law firms, accounting firms, marketing firms, etc. 

Inventory Based Billing Software

This type of software covers a wide range of company types. Retail companies, manufacturers, and wholesalers make their money by selling inventory. Therefore, all the billing generated by their software is keyed from the pricing of inventory items. 

Recurring Fees Billing Software

Companies that offer a standard monthly service, like home maintenance companies or IT services firms, need to bill the same item for the same customer every billing period. There isn’t a large prevalence of software that services just this niche, but most time and billing software systems have a module for recurring fees.

Medical Billing Software

Generally speaking, medical billing software doesn’t include hourly-based time management, but rather derives the billing amounts from specific medical billing codes, also known as CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) Codes. The software will use one or more available price schedules to price out each CPT code that a member of the doctor’s office or hospital performs.
