Product Catalog Component

The back-bone of our telecom billing engine is it's convergent product catalog. It enables unified management of products and services for ILEC, CLEC, VoIP, IoT and more.

Some of the advanced functionality allows for identifying whether the product is available for sale in the TimelyBill GUI, customer web interfaces and/or partner web interface. It also supports advanced pricing definitions that allow for recurring, nonrecurring, cancellation fees, deferred billing, promotion periods and more to be associated with a single price level. The product catalog is also where you relate provisioning and/or LSR plans to the products. This, combined with the TBProvision component, allows the OSS to perform flow thru provisioning to virtually any hardware.

Eliminate the possibility of agents choosing products that don't apply to customers by configuring product restrictions. These restrictions will allow the addition of business rules for product availability. Product restrictions can use metrics such as geographic locations, account types, or agent groups. If the rules aren't matched, the product won't be available for assignment to the customer.
