Argos phone tracking leverages existing Argos concepts to track and assign costs to telephone activity. Your phone switch or PBX system is represented in Argos as a device, similar to the way a printer or copier is represented.
Where print and copy activity is paper-based and priced by page count and page size, phone calls are duration-based and are priced based on minutes. Argos uses a special phone call media type for this purpose.
Argos determines whether a call was local, long-distance, or international by analyzing call logs and then applying a series of rules based on the location of the user. Argos uses the concept of office to determine a user's location.
