Why Should Billing Support Multiple Charging Models?

February 09, 2013

Industry-specific billing methods, products, and services supported by billing systems designed for a specific purpose and charging model used to suffice for most companies. Now, the pressures of globalization and technology require that enterprises bill “outside of the box” and support ever-changing charging models, products, and services.

This need can be seen within many industries, such as the telecommunications space. Telecommunication service providers face rapid changes in technology coupled with an increasing demand for new products and services at lower prices.


Flexible Charging = Survival

Creative pricing, billing, and rating models that support intense competition globally will define fitness for survival in this brave new world.


For some companies, the ability to bill for multiple charging models means a dramatic increase in sales and marketing opportunities. For other companies, this means the difference between life and death.

Billing systems that silo billing into a predefined structure impede the growth and progression of the enterprise. To compete and stay ahead in today’s global economy, businesses need to be nimble enough to change with evolving customer demands.

While it is impossible to predict with any accuracy the timing and nature of a paradigm shift, it is obvious that they occur with ever-increasing frequency; more often today than in any other point in our history.
