Rates Analysis Form

Rates Analysis is an advanced feature of the JeraSoft Billing Rates Management Module. It allows you to analyze and compare rates within the JeraSoft Billing web interface without the usage of any third-party software.

Accessible columns in the report

The list of additional columns include:

  • Sources Volume - calculated based on Summary Report.
  • Sources Quality - calculated based on Summary Report. Quality parameters for traffic - ASR and ACD -  are available per row.
  • Master Volume - calculated based on Orig-Term report.

  • Master Routes - shows how many accepted routes there are according to the Routing Plan on the selected master entity. When clicked, prompts you to the Routing Analysis for the respective case.

Note

A master filter must be selected for any master-related output columns.

Info

By default, the system takes statistics for the last 7 days. You can alter this value by specifying a Volume Interval filter. 

Order bySelect parameters to sort already grouped data in columns. Here you can sort data from highest to lowest values (or vice versa) and select different values
Type

Choose a format of the report from a drop-down list: 

  • Web
  • CSV
  • Excel XLSx

If CSV or Excel XLSx type has been selected, an additional Send to field will be displayed. In this field, you can specify emails of the clients, to which the current report in the selected format will be sent.

Currency

Specify the currency of the report. All values will be automatically converted to the specified currency in the report

Dst Code Deck

Select a code deck from a drop-down list. All codes in the following report will be presented according to the specified code deck

(warning)   Attention

This field is not mandatory by default. However, it is required if you have any destination name-related filters and/or Group by Code Name.

Group by

Select a grouping option from the following list:

  • Dst Code - aggregation by default output
  • Dst Code Name - grouping by rate rows with the same names and rates for all codes in each rate table

This option is intended to simplify grouping, the system will automatically group data in specified columns. If certain termination entities will have different prices within the same Code Name, the rows will be displayed separately.

After clicking the Query button, the system will form a list of rates with prices for each destination. The appeal of rates is visualized as a heat map for convenience. The darker the red - the least profitable, the brighter the green - the more, respectively.

Screenshot: New Report Query form

After a template has been created, a new Load Query button will be added to the section. By clicking it, you can select report settings to be filled in from a list of templates for rates analysis.

Export generated report

You can export report data either in .xlsx file or .csv that would contain currently presented data. Click the Export to XLSx or Export to CSV button above the report output to download a file of the respective format.

Sharing a Report

Each time you get a report output, the system generates a unique link in the format of "/view?id=<uniq-string>". It allows sharing data between the users, even if they belong to different resellers (the feature works similarly to Share by Link in Google Drive). 

The link refers to the report data valid for a specific moment.

Example: When you send a link to a report, you ensure the recipient would see the same data as you do. If you change data in the system (for example, perform rerating), the previously copied link to the report will display data valid for the moment of generation (even though the actual data is now different).

You can also view the additional information about the generated report by hovering over the Info icon, which is located under the Output section:
