Many Telecom Professionals consider the Rate Comparison as an important part of the "Savings or Reduction Plan" that may be offered to a client. In this section, the focus is on recording and tracking telecom expenses, which all begins with a baseline or Rate Comparison. It is important that you become familiar with the following TelcoMgr features, terminology and concepts:
•Rate Comparison the practice of comparing telecommunication services with one or more competitive Carriers. The comparison may include fixed or monthly recurring charges and/or charges that are incurred on a per usage basis.
•Rate Comparison Templates are a set of telecommunications expense categories for services that should be compared or base-line for expense tracking or comparison over a period of time. The TelcoMgr Template Set simply makes the set or group of expense categories portable from one customer/location to another. TelcoMgr includes features that allow:
•a) A Template set to be duplicated so it can then be modified for a particular customer or group; the original stays intact.
Use the [Duplicate Template] button to duplicate the highlighted record in the Rate Comparison Template table.
•b) A Rate Comparison Template may be copied from the Template Set Table to the Rate Comparison Tab in a Customer/Location record.
•c) Also, a Rate Comparison Template Set may be copied from the Customer/Location Rate Comparison Tab to the Expense Log as many times as needed in order to track expenses over a period of time.
