Save Time & Money
How much time an organisation can save using TALISMAN is hard to quantify. The most obvious way in which time is saved is in the automation of processing of the providers’ billing
Our existing customers benefit from huge time savings in this area. TALISMAN processes and verifies billing against historical data, allowing subsequent reporting. Clients can then approach the supplier with unresolved errors well-before payment becomes due.
Cost apportionment is also a task that is typically tedious for companies. TALISMAN categorises component costs into rentals, call charges, maintenance and non‑recurrent for assignment to charge codes.
Retaining attribute information such as user, location, purpose and cost-centre, rather than devolving this to the supplier is a key benefit. For example, a cellphone and its number may be re-assigned several times; this is held and updated within TALISMAN and the supplier no longer needs to be appraised.
Overall, we expect TALISMAN to reduce the time expended in reporting, collating and general management of telecoms issues within the organisation by at least half.
TALISMAN'S ability to interface and interpret the billing systems from your company's telecoms suppliers allows far greater control over your budget
TALISMAN provides you with an informed link with suppliers billing, ensuring that upon receipt of a bill:
- The integrity and basic additions are checked
- Each billed item is validated against information held on the database relating to previous billing
- Exceptions are reported on those bills which are unacceptable and the reasons why, together with those which are outside the accepted range
- A report and file can be produced for your company's General Ledger system, identifying charge codes together with the amounts to be charged against each one.
