Biaas’ Global Numbering Range Management database is a directory of the dynamically changing numbering plans of all the countries and territories in the world.
GNRM™ holds all the numbering plans required for the successful management of outbound international voice dialling, including:
- International fixed line destinations (Category CC)
- International mobile destinations (High Level Category M & Detail Category MD)
- Open international premium & non-geographic destinations (Category IS)
- National dial codes & National regulated rates
Clients provide Biaas with a live extract of their numbering plan configuration extracted directly from their retail voice billing system. Biaas then conducts a comprehensive audit of this configuration against GNRM™ and advises clients about all the required changes to ensure accurate billing in line with the published tariffs. Biaas customises the GNRM™ output to individual client’s pricing, tariffing and bundle plans in order to identify the immediate margin recovery opportunities.
Pricing and Assurance Services
Biaas has applied its expertise in pricing and assurance analytics within the telecommunications market to numerous other industries where there is a similar High Volume Transactional Processing (HVTP) environment.
Pricing Managers in any industry where millions of daily transactions are processed all face similar key financial challenges:
- Ensuring accurate pricing for all transactions
- Maximising the financial margin on every transaction
- Implementing robust price change control processes
Getting any of the above only partially correct will lead to significant margin erosion, which will adversely impact profitability. Given that pricing errors can often be difficult to detect, it is important that companies work with experts to recover their lost profits.
Biaas has a track record of working with financial, pricing and assurance teams to implement correct prices, to accurately measure margins, and to enhance the change control process in HVTP environments.
The quantified business impact for our clients is in excess of £100 million in terms of recovered margin. Biaas’ Pricing & Assurance Services are tailored to meet the industry-specific requirements for each client.
As a telecoms company you can improve the quality of your fraud detection rate with Biaas GNRM™, which is a powerful tool that uses real time information to battle International Revenue Sharing Fraud (ISRF).
The GCFA Global fraud loss survey for 2017 estimated that losses totalling $6.1 billion were the result of of IRSF. The good news is that this type of loss to telecommunications operators is easily preventable with Biaas tools that can be implemented into the FMS or Network.
By targeting numbers that generate revenue for the fraudster, Biaas has developed tools that disrupt IRSF on 4 levels:
International Unallocated Destinations
Through configuring FMS and Network alerts with FNRM™, operators can prevent IRSF fraud that channels calls to unallocated ranges in expensive country destinations (as well as higher cost numbers in non-expensive countries). Biaas continually researches and updates its list of IUDs to enable clients to act fast and be effective against IRSF
Invalid International Terminating Number String lengths
Configuration of FMS and Network alerts, through the use of Biaas FNRM™, can Identify destinations with incorrect prefix string lengths that are regularly routed to in the process of IRSF frauds. Biaas has a track record of keeping one step ahead of the fraudsters
to inform clients of what digit string lengths should be.
Higher Cost International Destinations
By utilising FNRM™ an FMS can discover the higher cost destinations that are often targeted in IRSF frauds. Through the maintenance of comprehensive lists and constant updates, Biaas can help to inform telecommunications operators and make these numbers more visible, decreasing the threat of IRSF.
IRSF Test Numbers
FNRM™ is a tool that enables FMS to identify the IRSF test numbers that are frequently used by fraudsters. Biaas tools help the operator to identify test numbers and take preventative action before fraud can occur.
