If you’re an Inmarsat Service Provider, you may be pretty satisfied. After all, Inmarsat does have good coverage overall. But how can you grow your business?
One of your top priorities should be to remove inconsistencies and errors from your billing. Both overcharging and undercharging can cause you problems. Charge too much, and your customers will see you as poor value and look elsewhere. Charge too little, and you’re missing out on the potential income you should be receiving. Getting a reputation for inaccurate or inconsistent billing will also hit you in the pocket. Make sure you have a satellite business plan that ensures you’re operating in a way that maximises your profits and minimises your errors. That’s where SATbill can help.
Although Inmarsat is an excellent general option due to its extensive coverage, SATbill’s billing system also supports other satellite communication providers, including:
Take a look at the geographic profile of your company’s customers. Inmarsat has a particularly strong signal in tropical areas, so if you’re mainly targeting Europe or North America, another satellite provider, such as GlobalStar, may help you offer a more responsive service. SATbill’s integrated and comprehensive support means it’s easy to bill for all the major satellite providers without having to create separate invoices.
Adding other satellite providers to your communication services offering will give you a broader market. It will also make your business more attractive to customers in areas of the world where Inmarsat is not the operator of choice. Decide on your goals and desired market segment, and focus on those. It’s important not to let yourself get into a muddle with different billing systems for each provider. Using SATbill can help you avoid this by allowing you to bill all your customers accurately, regardless of their differing needs.
