We send invoices monthly. Invoices are sent out at the beginning of the month. This means you will receive 12 invoices per year from Ambs Call Center.
Work-time minutes are calculated when our staff is working on your account. Taking incoming calls, dispatching calls, account changes, account maintenance, and on-call changes.
The D.I.D. telephone number is the telephone number we provide for you to call forward your phones to. In some cases, you may simply refer your customers to call this number directly.
You will only see this appear on your first invoice. This amount is the pro-ration of the amount of days service that were provided to you in the previous month.
You will also see the full amount for your monthly plan appear on this invoice as well. This is because we bill for the upcoming month’s service base rate and the previous month’s usage.
Patch minutes are calculated when a call is connected to another telephone number. The amount of time the call is connected is counted as patch time. An example is when we connect a customer to you on your mobile phone.
The invoice due date is the 25th of the month.
If the payment for an invoice isn’t received by the due date of the 25th a late fee is automatically applied.
The invoice will have a ‘PAID’ watermark in the middle of the invoice.
