Price, promote and discount products

TimelyBill 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.

  • Build unlimited price levels per product
  • Define discounts based on amount, or percentage
  • Create discount based on quantity purchased
  • Provide a combination of one-time and recurring discounts
  • Configure price levels to change after x number of cycles

Control when and where products are sold

Eliminate the possibility of customers or agents selecting products that don't apply, 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.

  • Set availability by CSR, Customer and/or Partner interfaces
  • Identify data required at sale such as user IDs, passwords, etc.
  • Configure availability dates
  • Enforce product availability restrictions:
    • Definable codes, Countries, Postal Codes, States/Provinces, City/Locality, Organization/Company, Partner/Distributor/Agent, Employee group, Business or Residential

Additionally, the product catalog is also where you can relate provisioning and/or LSR plans to the products. This, combined with the provisioning component, allows the OSS to perform flow thru provisioning to virtually any hardware.
