UTILITY BILLING SYSTEM (SUBS)
SUBS is a Utility billing and management
system for electricity and water companies.
SUBS was developed on a 4GL Relational
Database, Client Server platform and is
suitable for small or large organisations.
The system is centered around a services
table, that allows various charges to
be defined for products. These services
can have range amounts specified, to allow
variable rates for flexiable charging
rates depending upon usage. The services
can be categorised into groups and sub-groups
and services changes can be defined by
rate or set value. This structure allows
different regions to be specified with
different service charge structures.
The module has automatic processes for
the generation of dis-connections, re-connections
and new installation jobs. These are linked
to a job costing module that allows for
large and small projects to be monitored,
analysed and billed.
The system has a sophisticated method
of calculating billings and allows for
estimate reading that can be converted
into actual readings when the meters are
finally read. Meter reading forms are
generated by the system, along with notes
on site warnings etc.
In addition to the head office processing
system, the package has the option to
integrate with a branch database. Data
from head office can be downloaded to
this database, allowing processing to
continue should line links to head office
be out of action. The system also allow
high speed on-line links from remote sites,
via the Internet, should this option be
preferred. All data captured in the remote
database is on sent and captured via transmitted
files to head office and automatically
updates the head office database.
The system has integrated modules
for : Debtors, Billing Processing,
Invoicing, Sales Analysis, Job Costing,
Services Charges, Purchase Ordering, Stock
Control, General ledger, Fixed Assets,
Creditors and Payroll.
