Voice plans

This is the home of your voice services you will provide to your customers.

Why use Voice plans in Splynx?

We can provide two main reasons using Splynx for voice plans:

  1. Charging customers monthly fees for voice services such as VOIP, Toll numbers, Number rentals or Mobile plans.
  2. Processing of VOIP CDR's. Splynx can automatically or manually process the CDR's from Voice platforms, attach calls from CDRs to corresponding customers, create transactions for voice service usage and make one common invoice for Voice and Internet services.

To configure a voice plan, navigate to Tariff plans → Voice and click on Add plan button at the top right of the page:

You will be redirected to the add plan page where you can create a new voice plan by filling in the following parameters:

  • Service description - the description of the plan.
  • Price - the price for the service.
  • Type - the options are VoIP, Fix or Mobile.
  • Partners - the partners this plan will be available to.

Once the voice plan has been created, it is possible to edit or delete it with the icons found in the actions column of the voice plans list: edit.png or delete.png.

It is also possible to view a statistical graph of traffic for this plan with the use of the graph graph icon in the Actions column. This button will present you with the following window:

The graph can be filtered to display statistical data by hour, day, week, month or year:

After creating a voice plan, you can assign it now as a service to a customer. For this, navigate to Customers → List, select the specific customer, open their Services tab and click on Add service button at the top right of the page:

In the list of voice plans, under the actions column, there is the following icon: Voice pricing.

This icon refers to the rates and prices of voice services according to preconfigured/loaded rates tables for CDR's.

Another option is updating the name and price of a plan. Sometimes a business needs to increase/decrease price for plans or change the description, and in Splynx you can do it by clicking on Edit edit next to the tariff plan. The following window will open with the additional toggles under the description and price fields:

edit_plan

If you need to change Service description or/and Price but you do not want to overwrite the changes (if any) in description and price made in customer services subscribed to this tariff plan, enable Update description in existing services (meaning if they are the same). If the description and price are not the same, they will remain unchanged for such services.

In case you need to change Service description or/and Price even for all services subscribed to this tariff plan, enable Force description/price update, if the service description/price is not the same. Please be careful with this option because all the previous changes made in services subscribed to this tariff plan will be overwritten!
