          ===============================================================================

Notes for the above example:

  1. There are 2 accounts using EZ-Backup within this department. The above billing information is for only one of the 2 accounts, IT-ABC1238-_____-6601-___-__________-________. This is reflected by the "# Accounts" item displaying as "2".
  2. There are a total of 120 systems in the entire department, 70 of which qualify for the ">50 Nodes Extra Storage Discount". All 9 systems on this account qualify for this discount.
  3. The department qualifies for a $140.00 credit. This is allocated to each of the 2 accounts within the department, based on each department's relative number of qualified systems. In this case, this account had 0.8% of the qualified systems, so it receives 0.8% of the $140.00 credit, or $10.50.
  4. The department also qualifies for the ">15 GB Extra Storage Discount," so both discounts are shown.
