Billing Concepts’ (BCI, Booth 612) has enhanced its BC BETI product with a least-cost line-level information package. The new query provides BC BETI customers with the operating company number (OCN) and On-Net status — whether a telephone number is LEC-billable — at a cheaper rate than traditional line-level queries, says the company.
Customers can obtain traditional line-level queries, name and address information, as well as information from BC BETI’s historical data repository. As the largest LEC clearinghouse, Billing Concepts accumulates a wide range of historical information at the ANI level, including LEC adjustments, customer service adjustments, LEC write-offs, high-toll activities and other information.
"Our historical data gives us a strong competitive advantage because this information cannot be obtained from any other source. That, combined with our excellent customer service, will continue to attract new customers," says Don Philbin, COO of Billing Concepts. "BC BETI customers can reduce their uncollectibles by as much as 70 percent, saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars. Now, with the introduction of this new low-cost query, we expect them to see even more savings."
