Vodia multi-tenant Billing with Skyetel

If you are running the Vodia multi-tenant PBX, you can use Skyetel to maintain an accurate call record for each of your customers. This makes it possible to have hundreds of tenants and bill them accordingly based on the tenant domain name on the Vodia PBX.

The Skyetel trunk template is already configured to send the tenant information to Skyetel's network. This means you will need to name the tenant that's on the Vodia PBX phone system to be the same on the Skyetel's administrator portal under tenant ---> manage

Create a tenant on the Vodia PBX

Click on the list of domains then press create a new tenant, we will name our tenant domain "henrylaw.pbx.com"
