Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – September 14, 2006 – Dedicated hosting and game server solutions provider, The Planet, and ModernGigabyte, LLC, developers of ModernBill, billing automation software, will integrate The Planet’s Insomnia365 Cortex game control panel into ModernBill. In addition, The Planet will resell ModernBill as an add-on product to its dedicated game server offerings.
The integration of Cortex in the ModernBill billing system is designed to provide everything a game hosting company requires to run a business, including game management, network management, user management, and server management. The configuration of the Cortex module in ModernBill can be setup within minutes of installing the system. Popular games are included in the game panel such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life 2, Halo, Battlefield, and Call of Duty.
The ModernBill billing system provides full account control so administrators can easily create, delete, suspend, and unsuspend accounts. Multiple billing cycles can be setup to accommodate daily, weekly, monthly, and hourly invoicing. An unlimited number of administrators can be setup with complete control over access privileges. Administrators can also control the number of players per server plan. The Cortex module also gives ModernBill users the ability to do server load balancing customized to the game hosting companyâ€™s specific needs.
Kristin Herring, Marketing Director at The Planet remarked, ”The integration of ModernBill and the Insomnia365 Cortex game control panel allows our game hosting customers to run their companies more efficiently. The ModernBill system packs so many useful features that are required for a company needing billing that it was an easy choice to establish a partnership and get the module integrated as quickly as possible.”
The Planet is also reselling ModernBill with their dedicated game hosting servers. The addition of a billing system gives the customer more choices and greater control on how they run their business. The incentives are complete automation and flexibility as game hosting companies can customize the system to fit into their existing brand utilizing a feature-rich template system using Smarty.
Jonathan McCarrick, Vice President of Sales at ModernGigabyte added, ”We were just as eager to build and integrate a module for the Cortex game control panel. Now we can provide a complete solution to our customers looking for dedicated game servers, a control panel, and a billing system, all tied into one solution. The partnership with The Planet as a reseller is a great boost for our reseller program. We hope other large companies will follow the success of The Planet at both the integration layer and reseller program.”
