Release 5.5 SP2 Now Available
We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of Service Pack 2
for Rodopi OSS Version 5.5. In addition
to the standard bug fixes and refinements, SP2 offers the following new features:
- New report management User Interface for easier publishing of custom reports in Rodopi
- Scheduled billing – generate bills according to a set schedule each month
- Support for advanced tax module – external lookup for specific tax treatments
- Improved customer portal - easier to use, and easier to configure and customize
Advanced Tax Module Now Available
Rodopi now offers extensive support for the complex tax requirements brought about by such services as Voice over IP. Now customers
may use external tax applications from Vertex and CCH, in addition to an Advanced Tax Module
(ATM) from Rodopi. For
customers requiring sophisticated treatment of taxation on a per service and apportioned basis, the external lookup and third party
integrations increase flexibility and facilitate compliance. The ATM is ideal for applications in which detailed tax rules are required,
but the range of tax methods doesn’t warrant a third party rate subscription. An included tax journal provides an audit trail and
reporting of applied taxations.
In our ongoing effort to increase our customers’ competitiveness and add value to their investment in Rodopi, we’re proud to
announce the addition of the following strategic partners
to the Rodopi ecosystem:
||Igneite – Integration and implementation consulting services for IP services billing and customer management
||Incognito – Advanced CPE provisioning including DOCSIS and SIP devices
||Stratus® – VoIP and triple play services for broadband operators
