Prior to Nov 2018, there were other plans, TG-4 and TG-24 - all assets on these plans were be moved to the TG-PPM Plan. Generally, the cost to the reseller will be lower on TG-PPM compared to TG-4/TG-24.
TG-Classic, TG-Pro, and TG-PPM are all plans within 'Regular' TG Organisations.
ALR is it's own Organisation type.
Assigning plans to assets
- Go to Admin -> Asset Billing Plans. The user will need the "Billing Plan Manage" permission to access this and manage billing plans.
- Select the assets for which you wish to change the billing plan.
- Click change billing plan and set the plan
Notes for Billing Plan Changes
- Billing plan changes will take effect at the beginning of the next cycle (start of the next month) - the current plan will be used for the remainder of the month.
- The "next" plan, which will take effect next month will be shown in brackets, as <Current Plan> (<Next Plan>). Eg. TG-Classic (TG-PPM).
- The exception to this rule is newly created assets. Any changes made to the billing plan within 7 days of the asset's creation will take effect immediately.
You can view the current message count in the Asset Billing Plan page, Admin -> Asset Billing Plans. This gives the count for the current month. TG will count records only if the asset is set to TG-PPM. There are no overages on this plan, but the count is useful in determining which assets may be better off on the TG-Classic plan.
PPM maximum cost
The PPM plan does not have a maximum cost limit. An asset on a PPM plan that is poorly configured may incur a greater cost than the TG-Classic fee. This is left to the reseller to manage and configure their devices appropriately. Click here for a PPM calculator
