ZIRA Financial Settlement Solution Process
Automated Invoice Assurance
Enables operators to automatically upload statements/invoices from all their wholesale partners, in multiple formats (pdf, excel and image). Loading is performed at the item level for statements and with multiple validations and checks. All invoices are reconciled with internal readings and discrepancies are automatically visualized at the item level. Discrepancy tolerance and management approval workflow are available options.
Convergent Multiparty Settlements
Enables the operator to drive next generation partner management by providing multiparty settlement for content providers, centralization strategies and MVNO coverage. By fully supporting business convergence, all wholesale services (voice, IP, capacity, roaming, content services (IoT)) can be settled within one statement. For effective data consistency, the settlement status is automatically reflected to all related inbound & outbound statement providing revenue share functionality, credit and debit notes generation & handling, deposit status tracking, while also supporting multicurrency.
Covers end–to–end dispute workflow until resolution. Partial dispute functionality ensures cash-flow consistency by being able to split the invoice in two parts so non-disputed items can be sent immediately for further processing. In the case of prolonged disputes, CDR reconciliation functionality is available as final dispute resolution method while other resolution outputs are credit note, debit note, adjustments and re-issuing of new invoices.
Collections and Payments
Ensures all invoices are either collected or paid supporting multicurrency payment methods, conversion rates and partial payments/collections. It is fully bi-directionally integrated with ERP through journals and retrieves payment status from ERP to ensure full data availability within a single place. In addition to live operational data, ZIRA Settlement provides snapshots data for financial, reporting and audit purposes such as Accrual/Actual Revenues & Expenses, Collections, Payments, Setoff and Earned/Unearned through a fully featured sub-ledger and configurable mappings.
ZIRA Settlement is supported by a comprehensive and fully configurable reporting management module that is a frontend application used for presentation, preview, data analysis and monitoring of data collected and generated within the system. It provides multiple options for outputs: multidimensional cubes, pdf reports, excel reports and dashboards like pie, bar-char and many others – that are also available on tablets and smartphones.
