BillIntelligenceProcess and normalize invoices from any operator with ease 

The European market is a very challenging environment for multinational organizations taking on a Telecom Expense Management initiative. The multitude of operators, countries, languages, currencies, organizational size and other variables are counterproductive to execute telecom expense management projects and tedious for even the most advanced ICT departments.

Recognizing these complexities, Convergence has invested over a decade in software development to address the challenges of the European market.

Convergence BillIntelligence™ addresses the need for central processing of invoices coming from many countries and operators, in as many languages and a variety of formats.

To allow management to have a central view of their telecom expenses services have to be mapped to a common denominator, a common language and classification is required, while maintaining full access to the original invoice data.

BillIntelligence™ captures billing data from EDI, XML, XLS, CSV, TXT and other electronic formats, processes the billing data, maps data down to the CDR level to a common format, provides in normalization, data transformation, data mapping and language translation and produces output to any database or any alternate file format.

Convergence BillIntelligence™ now allows large organizations to get control of the high volumes of the most complex monthly recurring invoices and process those invoices electronically, thus reducing time spend on cost allocation, enabling detailed control and integration of billing data for auditing, expense management and reporting.

BillIntelligence™ also provides in the Intelligent Bill® standard invoice output format, providing a SBO – Standard Bill Output to Rivermine, thus allowing invoice load to Rivermine through a single format.

BillIntelligence supports more than 250 electronic billing formats from over 100 communications carriers in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), the USA and Asia-Pacific. BillIntelligence™ allows to integrate and standardize billing data from telecommunication bills for electronic processing in financial systems such as Oracle Financials, SAP, Lawson, Microsoft Dynamics, Sage and others, in Telecom Expense Management solutions such as Rivermine and TEM analytic applications such as Convergence TEMExpert and third party TEM applications.

Billing streams are received directly from carriers or through electronic billing presentment and payment (EBPP) carrier platforms from OB10, Certipost, Isabel, Zoomit, Paynet, Deutsche Telecom, Postfinance and e-bill platforms worldwide.

Supported e-bills include invoices from AT&T, British Telecom, Bouygues, Belgacom, Cable & Wireless, Colt, Deutsche Telecom, Eircom, Equant, France Telecom, SFR, KPN, Mobistar, Orange, O2, Portugal Telecom, P&T Luxembourg, Sita, Sprint, Swisscom, Telecom Italia, Telefonica, Telekom Austria, T-Mobile, Tele Danmark, Telia, Teliasonera, Telenor, Vodafone, Verizon and other operators in over 50 countries.

New e-bills are easily added to the portfolio within days, through application of Convergence’s RBI – Rapid e-Bill Integration methodology as they become necessary.

P
rocessing of telecommunication invoices has always been a painstaking and resource intensive task for large telecom users, limiting the visibility and their ability to get detailed insight in telecom expenses. Problem solved.

BillIntelligence Automation

BillIntelligence Manager provides as a standard in one system batch, which allows to bring multiple tasks to be executed in one command.

BillIntelligence Automation however allows - based on preset conditions - to launch multiple batches and even drives automatic report generation.

This allows for complete automation of the processing cycle: from collection and processing of the electronic invoices, population of the analytic database with billing data and enrichment information from the TEM system till distribution of individual reports to your users.

A onetime configuration hence makes sure every manager for each billing or calendar period is automatically informed about call behaviour and expenses in his department and/or cost centre.

Each individual user will be informed of calls made in the previous period and associated costs.
File exports for cost allocation or split bill charge through may be distributed to finance and/or HR.
BillIntelligence Automation produces printable information, export files in PDF-, XLS or TXT format, or as a XML record set for distribution via the internet or intranet.

With BillIntelligence Automation you have a real single keystroke automation solution.

Technology enables TEM

There is no Telecom Expense Management initiative that can do without TEM Technology. Telecom products and services represent a mission-critical support function that will continue to grow more complex in terms of technology, functionality and pricing and require automated management. Telecom Expense Management technology delivers the information you need to manage your telecom spend and avoid unnecessary expenditures with integrated analysis of your inventory, equipment, contracts, vendors and billing. And as TEM has evolved far beyond just checking phone bills, technology becomes ever more important to support people and processes executing TEM business functions. Today, TEM Technology implies an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-type integrated software application that delivers Total Telecom Service Lifecycle Management (TTSLM) for communications resources, a proactive method of managing the internal service delivery and service support processes of your organisation.
That’s why Convergence’s ERP level TEM solution is based on the technology of the world’s most famous provider of TEM technology, Rivermine Software, the result of tens of millions of dollars in development investment. Convergence’s proprietary software enhances and complements Rivermine to address the specific needs of the EMEA market and a geographically dispersed user community. The Convergence TEMPOR and TEMPOR Enterprise portal enable collaboration across geographies, customer teams, telecom suppliers and the Convergence Managed and Professional Services specialists. BillIntelligence normalises, translates and enriches incomplete billing data and TEMExpert Business Intelligence provides dynamic web analytics down to the call detail record level. This technology today brings TEM within reach of any size organization, with any telecom provider, in any language, anywhere.
