It should come as no surprise that the longevity of a company depends almost entirely on its ability to make money. In a service industry especially this will come through purchases and continuity programs such as subscriptions. So why is it that so many companies, even those based on free and open source software go about reinventing the wheel when it comes to billing systems? With ever increasing regulations from governments and payment systems why not use the open source model to build your billing infrastructure?

In this talk, Jason Hall will discuss the problems that every developer misses, why your finance gets frustrated, and the marketing team cries about your existing billing code. He will also show you how to avoid problems by utilizing existing open source billing toolkits like Freeside as the base of your billing and payments system.
