Service types provide a means to categorize services within the system and are primarily used for reporting purposes. Examples types could be: Data, Voice, Fee, Device, or more granular categories.
In this example we will create a simple service type called ‘Data’ setup as a recurring charge type. This type could be associated with recurring internet/network based services (e.g. cell phone data service).
For more information on the fields presented on the service type screen reference the Service Types screen help article.
