TELECOM COST & MARGIN ASSURANCE
Optimise business performance with end-to-end margin analytics and dashboard reporting
To clearly understand the profit margins that are earned through product sales and service usage. Within a telecommunications company it is common for data to be siloed within different departments, consequently making margin visibility a challenge.
The Benefits of Cost and Margin Assurance
Introducing cost and margin assurance is an excellent way to improve telecom business performance and optimise operational profits. With increasing market competition, the best time to assure this aspect of the business is now. To benefit the most from this assurance, the operator must analyse the margins at a more granular level.
The approach to ensuring positive telecom margins is often determined by the risk area or department in question. Whether you are part of a revenue assurance, finance or marketing team, we are confident ImperiumTM can aid your business processes.

Accessing the source data is often considered to be one of the most challenging aspects of deployment. In light of this, Imperium™ includes a dedicated mediation platform configured by our experienced inhouse engineering teams to keep the data extraction setup as simple as possible.

Assure Your Product Margins
Uncover the true profit margins of your tariffs and bundles by utlising margin assurance across your products.
Non-technical users can easily build up an accurate reflection of a product’s margin contribution and understand the real cost of sales. These results can then be analysed and used to drive future business rule optimisations to improve product profitability.
Our solution puts you in control of product margin management, providing a pre-defined yet flexible risk control framework. For example, you can define the KPI thresholds and alerts that should trigger internal action. We offer the following KPIs for each product, for example:
- Margin Score Per Product
- Billing Platform Demographic Margins (Prepaid, Postpaid, Hybrid)
- Average Margin Per User (AMPU)
- Service Type Margin Performance
- Destination Based Margin Scoring

Risk areas include:
- Inter-operator agreements
- Traffic mix
- Preferred roaming partners
- Agile roaming and international call costs
Ensure the profitability of your inbound and outbound roamers by including ImperiumsTM cost assurance module into your risk framework. Gain competitive advantage by obtaining valuable insights about operations and customers.
