jBilling Releases 4.0 Telco Edition

December 8 2014 by Crystal Bourque

jBilling is pleased to announce the official release of our 4.0 Telco Edition. This release comes with many brand new features, several existing feature improvements and a few changes to the User Interface (UI).

Improved features include:

Order Management, Provisioning, Mediation, Agents & Commissions, and Payments.

New features include:

Account Types, Asset Management, Route Rate Cards, and Company Hierarchies.

The following is a breakdown and brief description of the above mentioned features:

Account Types: Manage groups of customers uniquely using Account Types. Creating Account Type templates with a variation of meta fields called, Account Information Types helps to manage information specific to a group of customers. In addition, define Products so that they belong to one or many Account Types. This action restricts a customer from purchasing incorrect items.

Asset Management: This feature manages inventory items. From phone numbers to hardware, configure jBilling to mark assets as ‘available’ or ‘in use’, and keep track of which customers they are assigned to.

Order Management: The core functionality of an Order has not changed. Updates to this feature include: tracking changes and assigning an effective date to order lines, linking related orders, and complex provisioning workflow management.  

Mediation: Upgraded to use a distributed CDR processing method. Take advantage of jBilling’s ability to now process tens of thousands of CDRs in seconds.

Route Rate Cards: Using a tree structure of Data Tables, dynamically arrive at a rate specific to an event from values found in an external record. From there, the system will direct the event to move to a different table. It will arrive at a route which will determine the correct rate by checking the values of specific columns in one table.  

Provisioning: While the core functionality of this feature hasn’t changed, the UI contains an additional module. When specific provisioning-related plug-ins are configured, the system will display provisioning actions for Orders, Payments and Assets.

Company Hierarchies: It is now possible to create a Parent Company with none, one, or many Child Companies. These companies can share the same Products, Assets and Plans, as well as maintain their own, separate items. In addition, invoice Resellers at a wholesale rate, while charging their customers at a different retail rate.

Agents & Commissions: This feature replaces jBilling’s Partner functionality. It allows you to create Agents who receive commissions based on Products sold or overrides at the Agent level. Configure an Agent/Sub-Agent hierarchy and allow commission to roll up to the Parent Agent, or refer Agents and calculate a referral commission.

Payments: Configure an unlimited number of payment methods and associate them to group of customers. Payment types include: Payment Card, ACH and Cheque. jBilling now also uses Diameter AAA Protocol to manage real-time, pre-paid scenarios.
