There are many companies that promote cost savings with the purchase of their products. They toss out a variety of numbers with twisted percentages and make promises they could never keep if they wanted to stay in business. ISI won’t make these types of promises and won’t throw around head-spinning numbers. Simply put, implementing ISI solutions will provide organizations a significant decrease in their telecom costs.
The Infortel Select product suite provides companies a means to fully manage their telecommunications system. Utilizing cost reduction might not be a primary selling point with customers looking to buy Infortel® Select, but, in the end, they will surely notice the savings.
Call Accounting & Reporting
At it's core, Infortel® Select focuses on providing a proper reporting engine for the raw data collected from telecom sources that allows companies the opportunity to make proper business decisions in order to save money.
Below are just a few examples of how Infortel Select tackles cost reduction for organizations.
Jurisdiction Summary Report
The Jurisdiction Summary Report is designed to allow users to analyze and plan trunk facilities and trunk groups within a data source by summarizing call activity by each facility. Traffic metrics are broken down by call jurisdiction (local, long distance, international) and provide details on trunk counts, duration, and cost for a specified reporting period. The Jurisdiction Summary Report is useful to help identify routing issues and overflow, carrier bill reconciliation, and provides users an easy way to summarize total activity and cost.
Concurrent Call Analysis
Concurrent Call Analysis provides organizations a way to determine how many people are using the phone at any one given time. This information allows organizations to identify peak hours of concurrent use to determine optimal network bandwidth for SIP trunking based on yearly, monthly, and daily metrics.
Traffic analysis is useful to help organizations determine if they are over- or under-trunked. Utilizing traffic analysis reports, an organization can identify their busy hours and how many trunks were available during those busy hours. From these metrics, they can establish the correct number of trunks needed to handle the busy hours at the grade-service they determine.
Area Code Exchange Summary
Area code reports are valuable tools to provide users information on area codes they are calling or international calls they're making. Reports analyzing call volume by destination enable organizations to effectively plan for future trunk facilities and carrier services, and can help organizations identify where gateways might be needed based on call volume to specific geographic areas. These reports also give companies the ability to detect abuse, misuse, and fraud, and can provide a useful means to analyze calling patterns of specific user groups. Users can choose to organize the reports by area code or exchange. And when ANI is provided on incoming calls, the Area Code Exchange Summary report can summarize incoming call activity by the area code/exchange of origination.
