CASHBACK identifies problem areas in the end-to-end billing cycle and provides a clear picture about how to enhance performance. It helps you eliminate revenue loss during xDR processing in the rating & billing chain.
In an increasingly complex and competitive market, the ability of your network to generate maximum revenue is key to success. Losing any transaction record during processing from generation in the Switch or other Transaction Platforms via Mediation to Rating/Billing is nothing less than throwing away hard earned revenue. This is particularly important at a time when margins are shrinking and competition is becoming more intense. Without clear and accurate data about your overall billing cycle performance effective and target oriented counter actions are not possible.
CASHBACK processes input data from almost any xDR or transaction-stream. It compares and reconciles input streams, computes matching rates, and displays discrepancies via configurable reports and graphs. All this functionality is offered within an easy to use environment. xDR streams can be configured, data can be filtered, xDR attributes be translated, and results are shown in configurable detailed reports and graphs. Long-term statistical analysis supports your overall optimisation process as well.
CASHBACK delivers end-to-end control of your billing chain, and provides a true picture about processing quality. Detection of billing problems is quick and precise. Graphical representations of potential processing problems are provided, to make quick identification of problems and counter-measures easy and intuitive.
Built for flexibility CASHBACK comprises a core system, with case management, rule definition, reporting, traffic trend comparison and alerting, mediation rules etc, complemented by individual modules that focus on particular revenue assurance process areas.
