Rounding Rules

Last Updated: Aug 05, 2020

Rounding Rules are configured in Setup / Usage Rating / Rate Types / Rounding Rules


Rounding Rules permit you to apply minimum and incremental usage rules to usage records when rating occurs. For example, mobility/voice customers could be billed for a full minute for all inbound and outbound calls and billed in six second increments when the call lasts longer than one minute.

The Rounding Rules you create here be selected when setting up usage rates.


Rounding rules can be setup in the system immediately, there are no prerequisite configuration steps.
