Subscription Management and Cloud Financials Leaders Join Forces to Solve Complex Recurring Billing and Revenue Recognition Challenges
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ProformaTECH 2014 – Zuora and Intacct today announced the availability of a pre-integrated cloud connector that eases the integration between the best-in-class billing and financial management applications of the two companies. These capabilities allow companies in the Subscription Economy™ to easily automate and streamline complex order management, billing, payment, and revenue recognition while gaining real-time visibility into key financial and business metrics. The joint announcement was made at the 2014 ProformaTECH Conference in Las Vegas.
Subscription-based businesses struggle with systems that are typically ineffective for managing the demands of high volume recurring billing, and often don't support pricing flexibility and mid-term subscription changes. The Zuora-Intacct Connector alleviates these challenges for subscription businesses with two features that are unique in the market. First, companies have the power to automate the subscription revenue recognition process based on bookings data, not just billings data. Second, companies have the total flexibility to amend subscriptions midstream and have those changes automatically managed by the billing and payment processing engines, as well as reflected in their financials and business metrics.
Additional benefits of the Zuora-Intacct Connector include:
Beyond the Outdated Suite Approach to Business Software
Fast growing subscription-based companies using software suites are experiencing the limits of using a single system for critical business processes. The connector allows companies to easily keep pace with changing business requirements using flexible and powerful best-in-class solutions from Intacct and Zuora. There is no need for companies to lock themselves in to the lack of depth from limited, monolithic suite technology when they can instead take advantage of the best in subscription management and the best in financial management to meet the commerce, billing, and finance demands of a subscription business. Web APIs make integration in the cloud simple and fast for a best-in-class approach.
Instead of facing limits from their business systems, companies can amend and change subscriptions without having to cancel and re-enter a new subscription, and have the new information update their revenue recognition schedule – whether based on bookings or billings. In addition, with accurate customer data being passed automatically through the connector, companies don't need to hire additional staff to handle the increase in transaction volume when the business grows. Furthermore, with accurate, real-time business metrics, companies can track true buying behavior in their customer base and optimize their subscription offerings.
