CAMBRIDGE — GenSoft Systems of Geneseo, a telecommunications billing company, has filed a lawsuit in Henry County Circuit Court against an Ohio firm.

The one-count suit claims breach of contract, stating that Nova Telephone Company of Nova, Ohio, entered a three-year software license and maintenance agreement with GenSoft on Feb. 21, 2011.

GenSoft states that Nova agreed to pay a monthly access fee of $2.75 per access line for processing Nova's telephone billing, plus a monthly processing fee of 15 cents for each Internet or cable feature added to billing.

The suit states Nova also agreed to a monthly server hosting fee of $150 and agreed to pay interest on unpaid payments at 1.5 percent a month.

The suit states that Nova's attorney sent GenSoft a letter on Nov. 1, 2012, canceling the agreement as of the close of business on Oct. 31, 2012.

GenSoft then sent Nova a $2,606.28 invoice dated Nov. 15, all but $33.23 of it for telephone and Internet access lines and server hosting fees, and Nova declined to pay the invoice, according to the suit.

The suit states that Nova's early termination of the agreement, and its failure to pay the November invoice, constitutes breach of contract.

GenSoft is seeking in excess of $50,000 for actual compensatory damages, interest, costs, attorney's fees and "any and all further relief the court deems just and equitable."

A spokesman for Nova Telephone Company did not return a call for comment.
