Major Modules:
Application Modules


Offering Management
Offering Management/Packaging is a tool that enables the marketing department of a Service Provider to address the requirements of the subscribers as a whole. Packaging helps in reducing churn and provides the Service Provider with options to create and launch competitive services and bundles through an intuitive GUI. The flexibility of providing different products and services to different sets of direct and indirect subscribers and packaging such products and services as product packages and product plans form the core strengths of this module.

The system supports defining promotions or special offers to customers/ prospects. The system maintains records of all types of packages, plans, promotions offered by the Service Provider.Promotional offers may be defined for certain limited time period for the customers.

The Unicorn Packaging module provides the Service Provider with the facility of defining plans, products, components, discounts, unit credit and packages that can be attached to the service(s) being offered. The operator is able to define the charges (Recurring, Non-Recurring and Usage) to be considered while defining the plans, products and packages.

Customer Care
A Customer Care system allows a Service Provider to build and maintain a satisfying relationship with customers and enables the Service Provider to acquire and retain customers. Unicorn Customer Care module provides an effective solution to boost the productivity of the CSRs through the accurate capturing of information and generating quality responses and actionable reports. This module in Unicorn provides for registration of customer names, creating new customer accounts, registering online customer complaints and providing service numbers to the registered customers. In short, the Service Provider can access the complete detail of a registered subscriber from the system.
Unicorn supports N-level customer hierarchy. There is no inherent limitation in the system as to the level of customer hierarchy it can support. The entire customer hierarchy is displayed on the left panel of the screen in an inverted tree-like structure which allows the users to have single view of all the customers.

The Customer Care module is part of the core Unicorn system and fully integrated with all otherCRM modules such as Prospect Management and Marketing, Service Provisioning, Service Order and Work-flow Management, Account Receivables, Trouble Ticket Management etc.

Service Provisioning

The purpose of Service Provisioning is to activate/de-activate customer services rapidly across multi-vendor and multi-technology network elements. The service activation or deactivation requests from other modules such as customer care, inventory, credit control and fraud management can be serviced by this module. The rule based activation module is flexible and can easily be configured to service any new request with ease.

Service Order & Work-flow Management
The Order Management System is an aid to the automated management of business processes. The system provides an environment for creation and monitoring of instances of multiple work-flows and assigning human and material resources to the atomic activities constituting the work-flow. It has a set of default service orders with specified order types.
The module assists in streamlining service operations. It can be configured to check for valid allocations of products/services through the interface with Packaging and generate appropriate actions. It checks for serviceability of all service requests entered in context of availability of order items or feasibility of implementing the request in an area.

Trouble Ticketing
The trouble ticket system acts like an organizational chart, coordinating the work of multiple people who may need to work on the problem. The trouble ticket system assigns a ticket number for each complaint logged and this number is provided to the customer for future reference and for tracking the status of the problem.

The trouble ticketing system provides a GUI to enable the CSR to log a complaint. The system acts as short-term memory about specific problems for the operator as a whole. It provides a complete history of the problem, so that any user can understand the problem and take the next appropriate step without having to consult with other users who have worked on it. The module helps in scheduling the trouble tickets by assigning priorities, keeping track of current trouble tickets as well as calling additional staff if required. The module is also integrated with the mailing system so that e-mails can be sent to engineers working on the trouble ticket as and when required.

Web Self Care

Ushacomm's Web Self Care is an innovative, customer-centric, web-based application that acts as an interactive tool for subscribers to manage their account. Offering a direct link to billing and customer care facilities, Web Self Care enables the consumer to explore the offerings and services; engage in online purchase; book and monitor service problems; view and download bills; and make on-line payments.

Web Dealer Care

Web Dealer Care provides a web interface to the Dealers/CSRs so that they can manage customer’s subscription / payments / queries independently.. The access control mechanism of the WDC allows Dealers/CSRs or resellers only to view and manage their respective accounts/customers.

Our Roaming module offers full TAP 3 support; advanced pricing and re-pricing facilities; TAP and RAP generation; and reject file-processing capabilities. The solution works seamlessly with the pricing and tariff plans of a third party billing system to process roaming usage records in the VPLMN, and generate TAP 3 files.
