In addition to billing, via different rate, you can set trunk for different numbers, that is, the system will call different numbers to choose according to match the corresponding outbound trunk.Besides outbound billing, astercc also provides the rates for agent when answer inbound calls.
System rates the system buying rates, this is generally used to bill system outbound cost.
Rate of the system sales to team rates, or the cost of team, it can be used for billing on the team.
For the above two rates, we can see the following options:
For example, we can set all the teams all use the trunk A, local call, $0.2 for the first 3 minutes, after that $0.1 per minute:
prefix: default, destination: local call, Length: 8, connection rate: 0.2, initial duration: 180, billing block: 60 , the rate: 0.1, the team: not selected, trunk: A
In customer rate, besides same parameters in the system rates and the team rates, there is a “group account”, that can be classified into a group of some devices in the reunification of rate management, if no account group is selected, means that the rate can be used for any devices.
Rates are for agents answer incoming calls and billing, so dont have prefix and number length. By agent rate, you can pay your agent based the calls he answered, this is often used for part-time agent.
