It so happens that I run my own ISP and all we have is RadiusNT. Thus, I was
forced to develop a web-based billing system that takes care of the issues I
posted below.

My system works by having a "bonus hours" and "bonus month" field for each
customer record. The "bonus hours" are added (at no charge) to the standard
hours for the given "bonus month".

However, my billing system has no payment tracking system yet. And since I
am now acting as a consultant for another company, I recommended they use
Emerald instead.

Here in the Philippines, ISP's do lots of promo's like giving away free
hours. I hope the Emerald developers could come up with a solution to this.
