Unique Tariff table feature;

Prepago allows you to format your Prepay tariff table by customer types, allowing different rates, and charges.
The most complex tariff options are available; based on usage, by percentage, any taxation and levy basis and format.
The system allows you take a tariff table and "publish" it to your customers phone app and warn in advance of a change in pricing.
As the Prepago system is a prepay control system, it does not allow sethistoric pricing. All tariffs are set up from the start with a "forward" looking date range in the future - it may only be an hour in the future.
