Billing Cycle Determination in Provider Order
In CRM, the Billing Cycle can be created as shown in below cust path. The Billing Cycle must be created first in the CI[convergent invoicing] and then uploaded to the CRM system.
Then the billing cycle can be assigned to the product in CRM. Once it is assigned to the product, this appears in the provider order item.
Alternatively, the billing cycle can be determined based on a rule. Once the rule is defined it can be assigned to the product. Either Billing Cycle or Billing Cycle Determination rule can be assigned to the product.
Create a new rule.
Here we can assign either a billing cycle or cycle determination rule in the product.
If no billing cycle/ billing determination rule is defined, then the billing cycle field remains blank in the provider order item.
It is even possible that you don’t assign any billing cycle/billing cycle determination to the product but define a default billing cycle determination rule. Then this default billing cycle is assigned in the provider order item.
In the billing cycle determination, it is possible to assign a determination class to derive the billing cycle dynamically and also set the billing cycle as editable on the UI, so that user can set any billing cycle manually on the UI.
Here below is the sample implementation class.
