We've released a new update (v4.82) of our popular Telecommunications billing, reconciliation and rating system, Dynasoft TeleFactura:

New features and modifications include:

* Credit limit settings is now inside the customer accounts
* Ability to mark invoices as paid in customer's invoices screen
* Credit card holder name has been separated into first and last names, year of expiry date is now only 2 digits (YY)
* The credit limit functionality has been extended further: we have moved the settings screen from under the settings menu to each customer account so these can be set for each customer
* It is now possible to send the credit limit alert to the customer's email and BCC addresses, not just to the billing company
* Invoices can now be marked as paid simply by going to the customer invoices screen and by right-clicking over an invoice. A payment line is then added to the customer's billing table
* Credit card holder's name has been split into first and last names, expiration date is now set using YY format instead of YYYY
* It is now possible to modify the recurrence when adding system-wide various items to a customer
* The credit limit functionality has been extended with a new settings screen under the settings menu
* Ability to use price plan with no recurrence but where minutes used still have to be tracked
* New call categories that include call types similar to call groups
* Type of cli added (similar to branch/dpt) but added via config screen
* Various items: 2 boxes added: supplier reference and supplier type
* Ability to show distributor name instead of number and sort by name in the drop-down box in the clients' account screen
* Add tick box to disable zipping of invoices when they're sent by email
* Add option for ability to add a zero in front of numbers in the config screen
* New financial screen for customers and move credit limit on a this new screen, log who changed credit limit
* New web browser added with standard controls (back, forward, URL box..) and ability to assign 5 urls via vpn accounts screen
* New option in billing screen to bill without the voice calls
* All billing options have been moved to a separate screen accessible from a button at the bottom of the screen
* Code for the Web Access has been modified so if you are using it, we recommend updating it's files with the one included with this update
* Ability to override all settings in TeleFactura via 2 new fields in the CustomersData table: FieldDataGlobal and UseDataGlobal. CustomersData is where most of the settings in the configuration are kept. You would set settings the user cannot modify by entering values of the parameters you want to use in FieldDataGlobal and by setting UseGlobalData to 1. Any other value in UseGlobalData (eg, Null or 0), would make TeleFactura behave as before, ie the values from the other field called FieldData would be used. The user can still modify the configuration and if he does, then these settings are kept in FieldData. However, TeleFactura will use the values in FieldDataGlobal instead if you set UseGlobalData against the parameters you need to 1. FieldDataGlobal and UseGlobalData can only be modified from the db.
* Add the customer number in subject line when sending an invoice
* Show entire description and name fields in new text boxes in the various items when user selects a name and description
* When adding a cli to a customer account, show all customers who already have this clis not just the 1st one found
* Ability to modify all fields when adding a general various item from within a customer account
* When doing a search in the main contacts screen one had to enter the full string that is searched. This has been changed so user can now do a partial match
* TeleFactura is better able to detect CLIs that are part of a range when the user adds such a range
* Added in billing screen new option to prevent TeleFactura from managing the various items and voice price plans itself. Certain scenarios like advance billing and then preventing TeleFactura from showing these already-billed periods are not supported if this option is ticked.
* Ability to save voice, data and various items separately in a file of the format selected by the user. This is done via a new drop-down box where the user selects the parts in an invoice he/she wants to show in the config and customers' screens.
* In the customers' billing tab: ability to right-click an invoice and mark it as paid
* Support for cdr files with format for duration hhmmss
* Option 'Optimise for big cdrs' in the billing screen has been removed. All automatic mode billing is now optimised by default.
* Various items and voice price plans: if the user has not clicked the option to include a bill run in the customers' billing these will now always show. If the option is clicked the behaviour is as before.
* Various items: the beginning of a various item can now also be prorated. See Configuration screen, options IV tab, point 36 for new options.
* Voice price plans: the number of minutes/calls can now be prorated not just the plan's dates. See Configuration screen, options IV tab, point 36 for new options.

* When the user adds a voice price plan to a customer account, they can associate the CLIs that fall within this plan. A new option has been added to either apply the plan to all these CLIs or each CLI separately. See Configuration screen, options IV tab, point 36 for new options.

* Various improvements:
- Captions on the customer details tab are now correctly aligned with their matching text boxes

- When screens that cannot be maximised are closed, the underlying screen is now maximised
* Various bug fixes:
- Distributor commission bug fixed
- Displaying the invoices summary part by department/branch now correctly shows the sub-totals
- The payment line added to the customer's billing payment now supports comma as the decimal separator

* We now offer a dozen different software versions and levels of service to better serve our growing customer base, including a Software-as-a-Service or ASP version where you only pay fees based on billable minutes submitted for processing. We throw in a Web server and the Web Access customer portal. More on this here: http://www.dynasoft.net/telefactura_telecoms_billing/services.html
