What is the purpose of the call costing subroutines
you provide, for Single Site databases?
facilitate implementation, we developed sophisticated
pricing subroutines that accept call detail data,
manipulate our database and return call costs. This
represents a "plug and play" approach to call rating
that removes the need for our clients to have technical
staff to maintain rating software, or support staff to
troubleshoot rating questions or problems.

country, important for in-country sales), Non-Standard
Weekends (such as Thursday/Friday or Friday/Saturday in
Persian Gulf countries), Rating in Fractional Seconds,
Precise Local Calling Identification, Pulse Rating,
Surcharges, Wireless and Wireline terminations

Exactly what is a 'Single Site' database?
It is a pre-calculated, compact
database that provides rating from a single individual
point of origination. These products have the rates from
an origination point pre-assigned to all possible call
destinations, based on distance or rate bands. All a
user has to do is look up the call destination by digits
dialed, and all the rating information they need is
there, ready to use.
What types of Single Site databases do you offer?
Our Enhanced Database has full destination and rating
information. It can be customized with contracted or
negotiated rate plans. We also offer a Basic Database,
with reduced rating at reduced cost, and a Location
Database, with precise call jurisdictions identified
where the users maintain their own rating.
We cover numbering plans, local calling areas, and
rates and tariffs, available as standalone databases or packaged
together with rating software.
