Budget Control

The smart and simple way to define your phone budget.

With Imagicle Budget Control, you can intelligently assign a budget for the calls of each user, department and cost center. You can receive notices when the spending budget is exceeded and lock the phone, to prevent unauthorized calls. This is the ideal complement to Imagicle’s billing solutions.

Complete telephone budget management per user, cost center or department.

Easily assign a budget for your employees

Assign a weekly or monthly budget to each user, cost center (e.g. a specific subsidiary) or department, based on analyses of previous periods. The budget is automatically renewed for the next period, and if you wish, you can also decide to assign any savings from the previous period as a credit to the next one.

Real-time notices of cost overruns

When the budget is reached, or a certain threshold exceeded, Imagicle Budget Control immediately sends an alarm e-mail.

You can also automatically receive an e-mail with a practical summary of budget use at the end of the period and be notified if, for whatever reason, a phone is not locked properly.

Expense Management

Monitor your telephone expenses, keep tabs on telephone use and keep everything under control. Plus, thanks to Imagicle Budget Control you can also check your available credit in real time.

Analyze past budgets to optimize future ones

Thanks to pre-set, ready-to-use reports, you get a complete view of budgets assigned, cost overruns and savings, evaluating changes over time, both at a company level and department, cost center or user level.

Automatically lock phones when the budget has been reached

Thanks to its integration with Imagicle Phone Lock and Billy Blue’s 4, you can automatically lock phones when the budget is reached, avoiding uncontrolled increases in telephone spending. This prevents users from making outgoing calls except to numbers defined by the administrator (e.g. emergency numbers).
