Docs for all releases
The Routing Plans section is available if your JeraSoft Billing includes the Routing Module. To access the Routing Plans section, please log in to your system and go to Routing > Routing Plans.
This section allows managing your routing rules for customers, providers, and destinations. Each routing plan should be assigned to a respective customer (originator) for the proper work of the routing process.
You can combine both routing rules (dynamic and static) while creating a routing plan, also assign separate rules to each destination. Here you can find a list of created routing plans.

|General routing plan information
|Title of a routing plan
|Define the reseller/owner of a current routing plan
Additional Routing Plan
|Specify a DR plan, which will be additional for a current plan
Select a Code Deck if you wish to have names of your code to be specified in the Code Name field
Define the company or companies, which will have access to this routing plan (also this restriction will be extended to their sub-companies).
If there is no specified company, the following routing plan is available for all companies.
|Select the company or companies, which will have a limit in termination for vendors who use it (sub-companies are not included)
Rooting Loop Protection checkbox
Excludes originating client from the list of terminators. If it is unchecked, it will be possible to route calls between different accounts of the same client.
It is enabled by default.
|Options of rules processing
Select a hunting mode (the way how rules will be executed). They are as follows:
By default, the longest only option is set.
Specify a method of routes sorting in a routing table. The options are:
By default, the by code/appeal option is set.
Define if the system should check whether Customers' increments proportionally overlap Vendors' increments:
|Define a Profit Margin value for a current rule here. It can be specified either as a percent value (e.g., 16%), or in a system currency (e.g., 5 for 5 USD).
Determine the number of allowed routes for the same vendor to use (if a vendor has multiple accounts). You can set the limit only for accepted account routes, not including the accounts blocked by the term groups. If the field is left empty, the number is unlimited.
Routing Rules tab
Once a routing plan has been created, routing rules are to be determined (see screenshot below). To do that, click on a routing plan's name and you will enter Routing Rules tab, then, click the Add rule button and fill in the following fields:
Screenshot: Routing Rules tab
|Define a priority of rule execution if two or more rules have similar code or code name specified
Enter a code, which will be used in a current routing rule, use * as a wildcard.
|If you have a code deck assigned to this routing plan, a corresponding code name, specified in the Code field, will be displayed automatically. If no code deck is attached, the field will remain empty.
Select a type of routing for a current rule:
|If you selected static type, you may specify a termination client/account here; if you selected dynamic type, specify routing policy for the current rule
Define a Profit Margin value for a current rule here.
A number of additional parameters available by clicking the icon (see screenshot below)
You can specify respective originator tags here. If nothing is specified, it works for all.
|Here you can add terminator tags that will be used for terminators. If nothing is indicated, it works only for terminators without tags. Please note, this parameter is available only for dynamic rules
|Specify a time profile from the list
Here you can determine if a Rule will expire or not. If a date/time is specified here, the respective Rule will stop working after said timestamp. It will be removed from the Routing Plan completely after the next run of Dynamic Routing Manager.
If empty, the said Rule will work indefinitely.
If the Expiration Date will be set for the past, it will be highlighted in red to draw attention that it's not in use. With the next run of Dynamic Routing Manager, the said Rule will be removed.
Define the percentage or proportion amount of traffic, which will be sent to a respective vendor who participates in balancing
Please note that after changing balancing value, you will need to restart the Traffic Rules manager or wait till its next run.
Among the rules of the same priority, balancing will not be performed if the value is 100 or more in the Balancing field.
To balance routes equally among, say, three vendors, you can set Balancing to 33/33/33 for them OR 1/1/1 OR 99/99/99, etc.. As long as the values are equal and strictly less than a 100, the system will balance traffic between them accordingly:
|Set minimum and maximum length of destination number that will be matched by this routing rule
|Specify minimum ASR (successful records percentage) value to reject the routes that don't correspond to it
|Specify minimum ACD (in Service units) value to reject the routes that don't correspond to it
|Limit capacity for the current rule (leave blank for unlimited)
|If this field is checked, this means that rule search will be stopped when matched with the current one and all the consecutive rules will not be executed for a current call. The logic will be respected even if the rule marked with "Stop Hunt" will be rejected due to some reason during routing.

The Import/Export tab allows a user to either upload desired routing rules (choose a file on a computer through a form and click Process), or download current routing plan rules in a .csv file by clicking the Process button (see screenshot).
