Dear Leigh,
Thanks for you answer, So you recommend radiator?
What about analyses, you know always thinking about billing systems with

You always have problems with operators and they make lots of exceptions,

And if you have time would you please tell me more about your load
I am really confused really with designing and analysing this project :(
