The pair first collaborated in 2004, when they teamed up to develop and launch Lusion AHS – an automated reseller hosting and billing system geared towards managing the needs of their own web hosting clients at Lusion Technologies (now sold :), yay).
The SnapBill founders identified the need for a cloud-based recurring billing system developed with automation in mind and flexible enough to meet any businesses billing needs. The focus quickly fell on developing Lusion AHS into just such a system. Lusion AHS was subsequently guided into becoming the SnapBill of today through several years of industry use and improvement.
SnapBill has followed an organic evolution from specialised automated hosting system to comprehensive online invoicing and billing system with powerful recurring billing capabilities.
SnapBill was opened for pre-registration in February 2010 and launched as a South African only trial in March 2010. In the months since its South African launch SnapBill acquired over 2500 active South African SME and Enterprise users.
Some SnapBill users bill over 100,000 customers and USD 15 million (R100 million) per month.
Due to the positive uptake in South Africa, thorough user testing, detailed debugging and extensive feature refinement have been possible. The end result, a fully featured, robust system capable of handing anything users can throw at it.
SnapBill was opened for selective international pre-registrations in February 2011 and was launched internationally in March 2011.
