Digital items can be set to run for a fixed duration or indefinitely. A minimum commitment may be established to ensure that any substantial costs for creating the advertising be recovered. Items can be renewed, upgraded, downgraded or cancelled (at conclusion of commitment period). A one-time item like a setup charge may also be automatically associated.
DIAD and SFA can automatically send and receive data with a variety of third-party systems via established APIs. This eliminates duplicate entry into multiple provisioning systems and reduces errors. Digital products can be set to begin billing when provisioned and DIAD can signal external systems to cease fulfillment when items have reached a conclusion either normally or due to non-payment.
Sales credit can be recognized on a month-to-month basis or annualized (and the decision between the two may be based on advanced payments made). Commissions may be split between multiple sales reps. Items that continue to run on a perpetual basis following its minimum commitment may be set to pay at a lower commission rate thereby incentivizing the servicing of the account for renewals and upgrades.
