The Infrastructure Pricebook describes the content and pricing for infrastructure services. These services describe the infrastructure that you can assign and activate at particular sites, and how much that costs. The services are set up when your agreement with essensys is negotiated in the first instance and then on an ongoing basis. Once agreed, these services and their prices can be viewed as read-only in the essensys Platform.
Active services from the infrastructure pricebook can be assigned to occupiers or the operator at a site:
Occupiers can be assigned services under Occupier > <occupier name> > Services.
The operator can be assigned services under Account > Services.
Important: Assigning a service may not activate that service for immediate use. To use a voice service, for example, the voice service or services must be assigned to the occupier or operator, and the contract that the service is billed against must have started.
Accessing the Infrastructure Pricebooks
In the main menu, click Operations.
The Operations page opens.
Select the <Site> whose infrastructure pricebook information you are interested in.

Tip: You can filter the view to show only those services that are currently active, or that are currently inactive (that is, that were sold in the past, when active, and are still in use). The drop-down list that controls this is present at the top-right of the page.
