Aria6 Features  

Revenue Recognition for Partial Payments (DEV-4543)

This feature enables the recognition of revenue when a payment, in any amount, is applied to an invoice line item. If a transaction is voided, the balance is reversed based on the amount that was originally booked, and the line item is marked as voided. 

Revenue Recognition profiles that are not on payment deferral recognize revenue with the full invoice amount when the profile event is triggered.

If a payment is not yet applied to specific invoices then that payment is not used to drive revenue recognition. If a payment is in any way unapplied from the invoice, revenue that has been recorded is reversed to deferred revenue.  If a payment is applied again, then the revenue is subjected to the same consideration as an initial payment application and may therefore differ from the original application.

Recurring service revenue is recorded over the passage of time. With the cash basis deferral option set, revenue remains deferred until partial payment is applied. Once applied, revenue may be recorded up to the lesser of the payment amount or the scheduled amount that is in the past.   

Paymetric Payment Gateway Integration (DEV-5242)

Supported payment methods include:

  • Visa

  • Discover
  • Tokenized Credit Cards

Supported currencies include:

  • U.S. Dollar
  • Canadian Dollar

Rate Schedule Enhancements (DEV-5288)

This feature improves rate schedule functionality by providing the ability to:

  • Specify an optional rate schedule start date and end date for all services on a Master plan and/or Supplemental plan. This provides control over when a rate schedule is available for assignment for both new and existing customers.

Note: If a rate schedule’s availability expires and it is already assigned on an Account’s plan, then the account continues to be charged based on the assigned rate schedule and it does not automatically roll over to a different rate schedule.

  • Specify a secondary default rate schedule for an existing default rate schedule that is scheduled to expire. If a default currency rate schedule’s availability expires and a secondary default rate schedule is not specified, then a default rate schedule is not available for assignment for that particular currency. 
  • Specify and queue future rate changes for a particular rate schedule. If the rate schedule being changed is already assigned to an account plan, then the new rate takes effect as of the Future Rate Change Start Date and any invoice that is generated after the rate change is based on the new rate for the entire billing period. 

Note: Rate schedule modifications apply for the entire billing period to any recurring services and usage services that are rated during invoicing, regardless of when the modification occurred within the billing period.

In addition, when bill lag days are considered, the current rates on the account, or from the rate schedule on the assigned plan, are used. 

Accessing this Functionality

Getting Here: Click Products > Plansselect a plan > Rates
                        -or-
                        Click

Note: Refer to the Aria6 API Release 6.39 Release Notes for API-related changes as a result of this improvement.

Improvements to Aria Tax Configuration Interface (DEV-5299) 

This enhancement improves the load time of Aria tax sets by displaying only the name of each tax set upon clicking the Internal Values tab. This is beneficial to users who have a large number of tax sets created for a given Aria tax configuration, as the system previously timed-out when attempting to display each tax set and its configuration details.

Accessing this Functionality

Getting Here: Click Configuration > Integrations > Taxation Configuration

  1. Select an existing Taxation Configuration that uses Aria as the Method Type.

  1. Click the Internal Values tab.

Selecting a tax set displays its configuration details:

Selecting the tax set again collapses the configuration details:

Copy Configuration Performance Enhancements (DEV-5557)

This enhancement improves copy configuration performance when importing large sets of data. Previously, if an XML data file was very large, the copy configuration process timed-out prior to successfully completing the import. 

To address this issue, Aria now imports large configuration data sets by dividing the import process into smaller, more manageable chunks of data until the import is complete. This process occurs in the background and does not affect your ability to perform other functions in Aria. 

Note: If you are working with a large data set, do not close your browser window or logout of Aria until the XML file retrieval is complete. If the Import Status of the import job displays “Reading export configuration”, the retrieval is still in progress.
