Biller-1100 Product Specifications

Computer Chargeback System for the Unisys 1100/ 2200

The Biller-1100 computer billing system produces reports of computer resource utilization for the Unisys 1100/2200 series Computers, and calculates charges for the consumption of those resources. A cost center approach is used to allocate charges for computer usage. Users are charged only for their actual utilization of data processing resources.

Biller-1100 produces detailed listings of all run and file storage activity. Cataloged mass storage, and either cataloged tapes or STAR-1100 owned tapes, are both processed.

Why Biller-1100?

Whether for internal cost center billing, or external sharing of main frame resources, Biller-1100 is easily configurable to suit the situation. Its highly-regarded capability to produce detailed reports takes the guess-work out of every aspect of resource utilization. Reports are easily tailored to focus on one or a group of resources, and can be further categorized by users or projects.

Reports on overall system statistics not only illuminate the cost-effectiveness of current normal usage, but allow you to allocate by need, and therefore set pricing to an equitable advantage--in any world-wide currency. In short, Biller-1100 is indispensable for companies whose main frame usage exceeds the bounds of a single discreet user.
