The advent of content-based services has significantly altered the telecommunications billing scene. Not only is the content revenue chain more complex than voice settlements, it is continually evolving with multiple models in use at most Telcos. Bundling of various services and multiple charges per transaction only add to the complexity. Also, with rapid growth in these services, it is becoming increasingly difficult to reconcile partner payments with retail billing charges.
Symphona™ Interparty Management System
Symphona™ Interparty Management System enables operators to bill their customers and settle charges with their partners on a single modular platform. Symphona supports all operational and management information requirements. Its unique architecture allows the calculation of multiple charges for each transaction, and the correlation of retail revenues with interconnect cost. As product bundles and their related tariff plans become more complex, this ability to see all revenues and related costs is vital to ensuring a healthy bottom line.
