When it comes to billing and customer management solutions different companies will have different requirements. But whatever the size, revenue, or target market of a company, all of them need reliable subscription billing and management to automate operations, accelerate revenue capture and increase profits.
Aria Systems, a company that provides cloud billing and subscription management solutions, realized this need. For this reason, the company recently announced that the Aria (News - Alert) Subscription and Billing Platform now delivers more than 99.99 percent availability for its customers, the company stated in a press release.
Aria's complete platform allows customers to manage their Cloud Services, right from calculating the bill to receipt of payments across their customer base. Fully supporting the payments and collections process, Aria cross-checks entitlement information with customer charges, calculates the total bill, applies the appropriate taxes and generates invoices.
To allow new features and customizations, Aria uses LiveRelease technology, which gets rid of scheduled system downtimes. This helps the companies to save money lost in downtime for system upgrades.
“Uptime for any system is important and when that system is mission critical, for example a billing and payment system, it is essential,” said Oleg Ganopolskiy, vice president of Product Operations, Aria Systems. “Even short periods of downtime or ‘brownouts’ can be disastrous, especially if those ‘down minutes’ result in missed payments, lost sales or untracked usage of a product or service -- which basically equals lost revenue.”
In other news, Aria Systems recently announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies industry leadership and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Aria Systems was selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
