Voice / VoIP Billing & RatingEmerald Professional and Enterprise editions provide the basic and advanced features necessary to enable prepaid and postpaid billing of voice services.
- Call Rounding Many per-call rounding options are available including rounding up, down, nearest, 6 second, 18/6, 30/6, 60/6 and 60 second rounding.
- Time based rates Bill customers at different rates depending on the time of day, day of week, week of month and holidays. Emeralds "slot-less" design provides for any number of time based rates without limits. Overlapping time specifications are automatically resolved by determining the most specific match for the situation.
- Voice Rating UI Rate tables consisting of phone numbers, prefixes and suffixes can be inputted or imported each with separate per minute pricing, bong charges or static per call pricing for information services.
Rate grouping allows many rate tables to be virtually merged together for billing purposes. Overlapping rate table matches are automatically handled by selection of the most specific and relevant match.

formats and data fields are configurable through the Emerald rating UI.
