What's new in Version 7.5.2
Maximo for Service Providers version 7.5.2 introduces new billing frequency options for billing schedules, customer-specific job plans, internal service items, and user interface changes that support background copying of bill lines to bill batches.
More billing frequency options on billing schedules
Now you can bill at many more billing frequencies than monthly. You can bill at such frequencies as weekly, biweekly, quarterly, semi-annually, and by financial period. Preview your billing schedule.
Easy suspension of billing for customer agreements under revision
When a customer agreement is being revised, all billing for the agreement can be suspended until the revised agreement is approved.
Customer-specific job plans
Associate customers with a job plan so that the job plan is available only for work that is done for those customers. You also can limit the users who can work with this job plan and its associated records.
Internal service items
When service items are obtained from internal vendors, actual items on work orders can be recorded without going through a procurement process.
Option to copy lines for a bill batch in the background
Bill lines can be copied to bill batches in the background and you can be notified when the process is complete. Easily view the status of the batch copy, view history of all copies for a bill batch and view details about multiple bill batch copy processes.

Billing for asset and location usage
Financial periods are now associated with the measurement dates of asset and location usage. You can bill for all unbilled usage or bill only for usage that was measured in the prior financial period. You can specify multiple location and asset usage entries in a month. You can specify any active customer for the asset or location usage.

Optimized bill batch processing
When transactions are added to work orders that are in an open bill batch, the transactions are no longer automatically added to the bill batch. Transactions are added with one of the Copy features in the Customer Billing application.
Premium pricing for crafts
You can specify that craft prices in price schedules are calculated with a premium pay code. The premium pay code can increase pay by a multiplier, an increment, or an hourly amount.
