Enhanced Usage Reporting (EUR)

Today’s business environment demands a Unified Communications (UC) Management solution beyond simple call accounting software. A complete view of usage by specific locations and departments enables the allocation of costs, formation of plans for additional new technologies and identification of system misuse or abuse. Avotus’ ICM EUR integrates, tracks and reports on usage for UC services. UC deployments are expanding rapidly, yet many enterprises may not be aware of significant security and abuse exposures inherent in these deployments. The same UC tools, which enhance productivity, can be easily used to circumvent firewalls and share intellectual property. For over 30 years, Avotus has been providing visibility, data management and savings for corporate voice networks. It was a natural extension to lead the field in developing Enhanced Usage Reporting for UC. Now clients can install their favorite UC platform, in concert with ICM EUR, mitigating these risks and protecting their communications environment.

Providing comprehensive, real-time Call Detail Record (CDR) tracking and call accounting, ICM EUR allows communication managers to gain unprecedented visibility into the full suite of UC features including: Instant Messaging, Presence, Voice, Wireless, and Video Conferencing with one unified tracking and reporting platform.

  • Consolidated billing reports

The concept of Enhanced Usage Reporting

Avotus was among the early developers of call accounting solutions. Activity details of mobile and wireless phones, calling cards, pagers, etc. contribute to call detail information that did not originate in your PBX. VoIP and converged communication provide additional information in their IP-based call detail records (IPDR) that require collection and analysis. Traditional call accounting systems could not provide you with the level of information required to understand what exactly is happening in this new communications environment.

As Avotus believed that the term call accounting did not adequately describe all the new requirements of call accounting solutions, it coined the term “Usage Management” several years ago—a phrase that has been accepted on an industry-wide basis. Avotus has now adopted the phrase Enhanced Usage Reporting as a way to even better describe the services it offers.

Can you track UC Usage and protect your firm?
Lack of visibility, data and analytics allow for employee abuse or misuse of UC platforms.

What is the cost of a security breach?
Internal security breaches cost companies billions each year.

Utilizing Unified Communications solutions for the monitoring of corporate communication assets is a key component of Risk Management.
