SaaS (News - Alert)-based billing and customer management solutions vendor Aria Systems, Inc. has opened a new office in San Mateo, Calif., following what it calls “the growing demand” for its services.
The announcement about the new office in the Silicon Valley comes almost a month after Aria (News - Alert) Systems entered into a strategic partnership with Scio Consulting to offer enablement services for independent software vendors.
The global economic downturn does not seem to have had any ill-effect on Aria because the firm says more and more industries are considering using “Billing in the Cloud.” Media, Penn.-based Aria says it now serves in excess of 10 million transactions around the globe each month.
Aside from SaaS and media, Aria has expanded its product offerings to new industries such as renewable energy utilities, insurance companies and cloud service providers, company officials said.
Aria executives claim their payment solutions help software companies to increase profitability, boost customer adoption and control billing costs while maintaining focus on their core value proposition.
“The economic downturn has been a catalyst for accelerating SaaS adoption,” said Edward Sullivan, Aria’s CEO. “New companies and industries are now beginning to see the clear advantages of leveraging the cloud.”
Also, Aria Systems has announced several partners that have become proficient at deploying and integrating its Subscription Billing platform.
Since 2003, Aria has managed over one million accounts in more than 195 countries. The key driver behind its expanding business is the Billing Platform, an on-demand tool that helps companies reduce operating costs.
Aria has recently raised $10 million from Rockefeller family-backed investors Venrock, saying it will use the money to strengthen the workforce.
