“We were blown away by how simple it was for us to get the first integration built so we decided, why not do both? It’s going to be a significant value-add for our partners and make it easier for them to administer our solutions,” said Josh Flores, General Manager, Comet Backup.

Zorus excited to offer their partners automated billing reconciliation

"Partnering with Gradient was a no-brainer for us at Zorus," said Kate McAnespie, Director of Product at Zorus.

Their mission is to transform MSPs' capability to fully engage with how the technology they implement can make the work environment more intelligent and empower their clients to be better businesses.

Synthesize: the platform that saves MSPs time and money

MSPs who use the Synthesize platform have access to modules designed by MSPs for MSPs that help them improve their business’s resiliency and efficiency.

Billing, the first module available, streamlines and simplifies the often-painful billing reconciliation process for MSPs. The module allows them to easily and intuitively sync customer service consumption back to their PSA, saving them time while also resurfacing revenue that may have been overlooked.

Alerts, the newest module, allows MSPs to stay on top of important alerts across their stack, allowing them to select the vendor alerts that are relevant to them and map them to appropriate PSA ticket queues so they can act on them. This speeds up alert resolution and helps ensure they never miss an important alert in the flurry of consoles, mailboxes, and noise of alerts that aren't critical.

Integrations like Comet Backup’s deliver value on both modules to their partners to save them time and money.

“It represents a huge improvement for MSPs looking to tighten their back-office processes and better recession-proof their business,” says Knox.

MSPs can take advantage of a Standard Alerts integration, such as Comet Backup, at no cost. Turning on two or more Standard Alerts integrations, or Premium Alerts integrations (when available) will cost $149/month for unlimited integrations. 

As a bonus, MSPs can combine the Alerts module with the Gradient Billing module and streamline their monthly reconciliation tasks. Complete details can be found on our Pricing page.
