Description

The Billing Area SSMT content category can be used to assist in managing the entries in the Billing Area dictionary. The Billing Area dictionary in most cases is provided by the PMS and in some cases kept synchronized via dictionary interfaces with the PMS. It is almost always the case that the entry code, name, and mnemonic values for your billing area entries will need to match what is in the PMS or centralized billing system.
