GDPR data controller or processor

My company is a product based company that provides billing software to different companies who want to bill their customers. Along with the software we also provide maintenance service to the companies whom we sell our product. We have access to the customer data (stored by the companies who uses our software) as well. So can you please tell me whether my company is data controller or data processor?
