What it is
Tariff Suite is a pricing simulation and analysis tool that helps single or multiple play telecom providers to:
- Develop new bundles of products and tariffs
- Define customer retention strategies
- Manage costs
- Analyse margins
Tariff Suite is based on the processing and analysis of real traffic data rather than aggregates.
The goal of Tariff Suite is to shorten the cycle "define experiment (alternative tariffs)/execute experiment (re-rate traffic)/analyse results". This gives operators the precise information they need to react quickly to any developments in the market.
Is my new offer really attractive?
Tariff Suite gives pricing and product managers the ability to benchmark their new offers against the competition by calculating what customers would pay according to different tariff plans.
This enables them to fine-tune the offer by using iterations to produce the best offer for attracting the customer while at the same time meeting the company’s business objectives.
What is the impact of a new offer proposed by a competitor?
Tariff Suite can easily be configured for tariff plans issued by different operators.
As soon as a competitor’s proposed plans are created in the system, Tariff Suite calculates what customers would pay in these plans and the differences in billing charges based on real traffic.
How do I move my customers from old rate plans to new alternatives?
Tariff Suite’s capabilities allow you to calculate what customers would pay for each rate plan/add-on combination available in the company for a specific sales channel.
This makes it easy to analyse alternative bills and decide which new offer should be proposed to the customer.
How do I reconcile vendor bills?
Tariff Suite enables procurement teams to check the bills produced by their service providers. The calculation is based on the traffic details generated by internal logging systems (e.g. switches) or the traffic files received from service providers.
With Tariff Suite it is easy to detect errors in the bills of service providers, such as differences in minutes, the wrong pricing applied, etc.
How do I control and optimize costs?
Dealing with several countries/providers usually means dealing with different and quite complex pricing models.
Once the different models are uploaded, comparing the costs of different service providers with actual traffic becomes simple.
What will the margin look like if I switch provider?
Tariff Suite provides a very clear overview of the impact on margins if all or part of the traffic was switched from one provider to another.
As a result, cost and procurement managers can determine and optimize their purchasing strategies..
