Asterisell is a cost effective product that generates cost and income. Here, the term Income is what your customer pays to you and the cost is what you pay to other vendors in order to route the customer call. However, it is not so efficient to manage the routing of calls.

Then the vendor can inspect calls with associated incomes from customers and expenses due to other vendors.

For the programmer, it is a PHP web application that uses the symfony framework and reads Call Detail Records from a CDR table where Asterisk write info for every call.The use of an object-oriented design permits to extend the software adding new features.
