An adjunct rating and charging solution is provided for those customers who have existing infrastructure in place and are not able to deploy a solution that can handle rating or charging. There are several motivating factors for this:
A customer may need to get up and running quickly in order to compete effectively. The adjunct solution addresses the time to market issue by providing a subset that can be deployed more quickly. This allows the LogiSense Billing rating and charging engine to process new lines of business quickly and feed charge data back to a pre-existing billing system.
The customer may already have an existing billing solution that is entrenched in the business but there are gaps in their current offering that need to be addressed. For example, the solution may not have a flexible usage rating engine, or the ability to charge usage data at all. The LogiSense adjunct solution can address these needs by supplementing their existing solution with the pieces that are required. Even if the customer may eventually decide to migrate to the LogiSense platform, this approach allows them to address time to market issues by addressing their feature gaps in the short term with the adjunct solution.
