Auto-provisioning of Service
From user registration to order checkout, the front-end integration (WHMCS) will handle everything including online payments.

It is a very common business model to charge bulk clients differently or providing choices for clients to select different packages as per their requirements and budget. With WHMCS and ICTBroadcast integration business, owner/system admin will be able to design and offer multiple packages according to their own business model. While creating new packages admins can decide available resources from ICTBroadcast and their limits for the package buyer. further admin can decide subscription time duration and define subscription cost. following is a list of features that can be customized from package management.
Just like VoIP providers, ICTBroadcast's admin can already define multiple rate plans to offer bulk users a comparatively lower call cost. Now with WHMCS integration admin can link these rate plans with subscription packages. A user subscribing to a specific package will be charged only according to that rate plan. All outgoing calls will be billed accordingly.
No. of Channels
The package can specify the allowed number of concurrent channels. the number entered in this field will serve as the upper limit for outgoing concurrent calls. At any given time in ICTBroadcast users will not be able to cross that limit regardless of the number of active campaigns.
Free Credit / Minute
Who does not like free credit? everyone does. With ICTBroadcast admin can assign free credit/minute quota with selected packages. depending on the package this quota can remain or get reset after each renewal / monthly payment.
One Time Cost / Setup Fee
Everyone likes free signup or pay what they need. but some time admins are required to apply some upfront cost on new signup to meet their business cost. With WHMCS it can be achieved with a one-time fee option.
Renewal and Recurring Payments
Alternatively to a one-time fee. admin can also define packages that are required to be renewed after a specified time period (monthly, quarterly, etc ...). for those packages system will automatically generate invoices and remainder emails will be sent to the client before the due date. In case the client fails to pay his/her dues their service can be suspended and their subscription can be revoked after the specified number of days.
Account TopUp ( prepaid credit )
Different than listed packages sometime clients are required to refill/recharge their account. for that purpose admin can create separate top-up packages. on purchasing such a package user's account will be credited in ICTBroadcast accordingly.
Package Upgrade / Downgrade
If the client wants to change his package, either he/she want to upgrade it or downgrade. he can request the admin to switch their package with the selected one. ICTBroadcast will adjust this change accordingly while keeping all user data intact.
