Streamline Your Billing Migration

Image
Making the switch to a new billing system doesn't need to be painful Today's communications service providers are looking to improve the customer experience in effort to grow revenues. However, many CSP's are struggling with antiquated billing systems. These complex and disparate software systems can be expensive to operate. They often lack the flexibility required to handle modern product and service offerings.
Although a desire to replace these old systems exists, telecoms are reluctant to tackle such migration projects due to the scale, effort and resource dedication required.

TimelyBill has addressed these concerns by utilizing a time-proven implementation process to streamline billing migration.

Implementation phases:
Phase 1 – Data CollectionPhase 2 – Data Conversion / System ConfigurationPhase 3 – Admin TurnoverPhase 4 – User TrainingPhase 5 – Go Live While our process is "tried and true", it's important to stress that it requires a logical stepped pro…

Things to Look for When Selecting a Telecom Billing Software Vendor

Image
Billing for telecom is a complicated process. If accounts and services are incorrectly billed, it can lead to lost revenue. The ability to produce both accurate and timely invoices is paramount. The software platform you select should be able to produce precise billing information every-time.

Geocoding Addresses in TimelyBill

Image
What is geocoding?
Geocoding is the process of transforming a postal address to a spatial location on the Earth's surface. The resulting locations are output as  numerical coordinates with attributes, which can be used for mapping or spatial analysis.

Why implement geocoding?
Locations need to be accurate so that telcoms can determine what services are available to a given house or business. An incorrect address could lead to wrong assumption that customer is not in a service territory.  It could also lead to repair troubles or difficulty in installation of new equipment or services.

The TimelyBill approach?
TimelyBill first verifies a customer location by matching it with a USPS standardized address.  Next, our integrated FCC geocode lookup tool provides the coordinates as well as the census geographies (state, county, tract and block) associated with address.
