JeraSoft Limited, top-developer and integrator of high-quality billing solutions for telecom and IoT providers, today announced the major release of JeraSoft Telecom and IoT Billing Platform – JeraSoft Billing 3.20. This release brings extended features and developments in the Routing module, improved performance and updates in the Rates module and Swap Deals management features development.
Andrii Zinchenko, CTO JeraSoft, gives the insights to JeraSoft Billing product release 3.20:
“JeraSoft Billing 3.20 includes a great number of new features and developments, but three main parts we are proud to present are Dynamic Routing new features, major updates in Rates Import and a completely new feature – Swap Deals. We decided to start presenting release 3.20 from Routing Module and the New Year 2020 will start with the presentation of Rates Import and Swap Deals section. JeraSoft team congratulates our customers on the upcoming Holidays, and I would like to underline that all three main features I described above are already included in version 3.20.
This autumn JeraSoft team conducted deep research with an open questionnaire to get customer feedback and to investigate the market request. As a fruitful result of the research new version of the product was born. We are grateful to our customers for their impact on the JeraSoft Billing Platform continuous improvement and from our side, we are open to hearing every customer, to stay updated and keep close to our customers‘ business needs.“
Dynamic Routing Policies
Among the most efficient and business-friendly solutions in JeraSoft Billing 3.20 are Cash Flow-based dynamic routing policies creation.
In order to give more flexibility, the Routing Policies module has been completely reworked in the newest version 3.20. It is now possible not only to use predefined Routing Policies but to create your own with a set of factors that fits your business needs. The available factors are: Rate, Quality (ASR, ACD, PDD, SCD), Vendor Debt, and Payment Due.
As described above, newly added factors are PDD, SCD, Vendor Debt, and Payment Due. The latest two allow you to consider Cash Flow within the routing procedure. The routing order and procedure are improved with the accordance of Cash Flow optimization and aimed to increase the profitability of customers‘ business models.
The second feature developed in the Dynamic Routing policies will allow a customer to manage and customize different factors and factor combinations in the Routing module, instead of using pre-defined settings as before. It is also possible to create filters for different groups of vendors. For instance, filters could be customized considering the route price and vendor debt or by the quality and the billing terms.
With Quality Factors feature rework we have simplified and added the possibility to filter the routes by quality. Customers will experience more flexible and at the same time easier way of routing quality management.
For added convenience, you can now specify QoS filters (ASR and ACD) for each routing rule in the Routing Plan. It allows you to remove vendors with lower quality from the routing in real-time to deliver better traffic quality for your clients.
Generally, the Routing Policies section looks more insightful, simple and user-friendly.
Billing Increment Check
To improve profitability check, we’ve added Billing Increments matching between Customers’ and Vendors’ rates in the routing. This feature is available for both dynamic and static routing rules.
Billing Increment Check is a smart feature that allows to check and calculate an efficient and non-efficient ratio between Customers‘ and Vendors‘ rates and ensure only profitable deals for both sides.
Source Code Routing
The new version includes improvement in the Routing Map building for the rates with defined Src Code. Previous versions considered only rates without Src Code when building Routing Map. The optimized A-Number Routing feature in combination with A-Number Billing features will provide the most precise route profitability check and calculation, as well as improved Profit Margin checks.
The Routing Analysis section brings a number of visual improvements to make it more efficient, simple and user-friendly for the client to analyze the query results. The new Output options include Verbosity (lets you control the routes’ output based on them being accepted or rejected by the system), Skip Reasons (lets you control routes under which checks should be removed from the result). Other improvements are related to the columns shown in the Routing Analysis, such as Status, Routing Rule, Vendor, Account, Code, Rate, Reject Reasons, etc.
Vendor Credit Limit
To make routing management more versatile, the Client Info settings block has a new field added – Credit limit – for Terminator Settings. This setting lets you control the credit limit you have on the vendor’s side. This credit limit will be applied to vendors during the routing check to remove them from the routing result if the vendor balance plus credit limit hits the entered threshold. So this feature allows avoiding soft switch overload and also helps to increase call PDD.
Among minor updates, there is a simplification in DID routing operations, which allows adding rules even easier than it was before.
Jurisdictional Billing Module
We’ve broadened the area detection functionality for the Jurisdictional Billing module. From now on, we use the LERG database for detecting state, lata, MTA and local parameters. Also, we use the North American Numbering Plan dipping in the Traffic Processing section for more precise processing.
