With Datagate, all MSPs can be telecom providers

 Datagate is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) billing solution designed for MSPs to bill telecom services and integrate with their in-house systems, to function optimally at minimal time and cost. Datagate will integrate with the cloud-based version of ConnectWise Manage. For American customers, Datagate integrates with the CCH SureTax tax engine for calculating the telecommunications taxes applicable for the tax jurisdictions in which the MSP’s telecommunications customers are located. An optional white-label Datagate end-user portal is also available. This enables the MSP’s customers to view their usage data (call details, usage trends etc) as well as their Datagate-generated invoices. With Datagate, all MSPs can be telecom providers.

ConnectWise Manage Connector

Datagate’s integration with ConnectWise Manage enables MSPs to continue running their businesses through ConnectWise Manage, while Datagate generates the specialized telecom invoices that are visible to any staff member using ConnectWise Manage and any software plugged into ConnectWise Manage. We recognize that many MSPs run their business “the ConnectWise Way”. Datagate supports this approach in adding telecom billing.

Datagate has a two-way synchronization with ConnectWise Manage via an API connection, that shares the following data:

  • Customer Account Details that are entered and maintained within ConnectWise Manage and labeled as telecom customers are synchronized back to Datagate. Customer details need only be entered and maintained in ConnectWise Manage.
  • Customer Agreements that are entered and maintained with ConnectWise Manage and labelled as telecom agreements are synchronized back to Datagate for billing. This includes product and service details as well as pricing.

  • Telecom Invoices generated by Datagate are transferred back to ConnectWise Manage as miscellaneous invoices under the customer’s account.
  • Agreement Updates are another option and alternative to Datagate-generated invoices. Using this method, instead of using Datagate to generate the telecom invoices, Datagate will update an existing Agreement within ConnectWise Manage, so that billing can be executed using ConnectWise Manage.

“For the same or less cost than our previous provider, Datagate has saved us time, integrated telecom billing into ConnectWise, and is delivering better support.”
