Once the spider unit at your property is emailing meter readings, Billing Maid is quick and easy to setup. Just follow these 7 steps to get you on your way!
Billing Maid is installed using a standard windows installer. You will need to have administrative permissions to install. Billing Maid can be uninstalled using the standard Programs and Features control panel applet.
Properties are configured in Billing Maid using the Properties dialog.
Units are configured in Billing Maid once initial meter readings are imported and a bill has been calculated. This only has to be done once and then updated as owners, agents and tenants update their details.
If you have purchased our hosted solution, you will have configured your spider unit to email meter readings to the email address we have provided you with your license.
Once the spider has sent the first readings through you can now import them into Billing Maid.
If you have the spider send you its meter reading files in another manner:
Once meter readings have been imported, a bill from your utility company for the entire property can be apportioned to each unit based on that units consumption.
Once a bill from your utility company has been apportioned across all units in the property, you can generate a Adobe PDF invoice for each unit.
Billing Maid is really pretty simple, so there aren't a lot of settings. But you can do some simple changes to customize how Billing Maid operates.
