WHMCS Releases Version 4.5 — New Functionality Added to Easy-To-Use Billing & Invoicing Software


(PRWEB) June 17, 2011

WHMCS, a leading automation & recurring billing solution for web hosts and other online businesses, is pleased to announce the release of Version 4.5 – the latest update to the WHMCS software product.

This update is a milestone release for WHMCS, being the culmination of 4 months of hard work, with not just the usual new features but also many usability enhancements & improvements to the system as a whole.

Some of the key highlights in this release relate to billing, including 4 all new order form designs, doubling the number of included stock order form templates from 4 to 8, support for fixed term products allowing for installments & trials, enhanced product & domain management options for staff users, improved cancellation automation, the ability to offer upgrade promotions & incentives, and additional reporting tools including CSV Export ability for further analysis.

But that’s not all, there’s also improvements to the support side of things with improved automated ticket suggestions using the KB and enhancements to help staff deal with support requests more quickly and efficiently including quick access mass management buttons, predefined replies search functionality, and ajaxified ticket reassignment.

Continuing on our drive to help users with the hassles and complexities of PCI Compliance, this release also sees the introduction of a new module for PayPal Pro’s Reference based payments service to allow for fully automated recurring billing, on demand, without the need to store clients credit card details locally in your system. And there’s also an expanded integration with 2Checkout’s Recurring Billing service just for good measure.

Now having gone through 30 day’s of rigourous beta testing, followed by a month’s live use where we’ve solicited feedback from many long term users and acted upon it, WHMCS V4.5 is the most feature rich, stable and reliable release of WHMCS to date creating a new benchmark for Web Hosting Automation & Management.
