Rate sheet Templates
Allow users to define industry-recognized Rate sheet formats for import easily. Users can choose between destination-based and origin-based templates so that they get a view of only relevant fields.
Billing Increments
Support billing increments from rate sheet import itself. The system supports increments such as 1/1, 60/60, and so on for individual destinations. Once imported, the rating logic automatically starts rating based on the configuration.
Calendar Definition
Support complex calendar definitions as a single destination can follow its own time of day definition. Based on the flexible day groups and time of day configurations, enhanced features allows the association of multiple calendars to be supported in the same rate sheet import itself.
Origin Groups
Allow rates based on the origin group and destination combination during the rating process. Maintaining dial code groups, especially origin codes, keeps the data arranged in zones or categories, making it easier to access the information across the application and for the system to match and rate accurately.
Pricing/Surcharge Rules
Define surcharge rules to supplement the standard rates. Determine the rules using simple expressions for Origin bases and destination-only scenarios. Matching & Rating logic consider the criteria to apply surcharge rules based on the requirements. This gives additional flexibility to address specific rating requirements without changing the existing configurations.
