Drexel Hill, PA (PRWEB) June 3, 2005
Today Aria Systems announced that McAfee Broadband, the company defining the next-generation of wireless Internet, has selected Aria Systems' innovative AriaCoreÂ solution to rapidly solve complex recurring billing and receivable management requirements for McAfee's suite of wireless Internet services. By using the AriaCoreÂ platform's customer relationship management (CRM) features to upsell products and services and give customers total account management through a Web-based self-service control panel, McAfee Broadband will increase revenue opportunities, strengthen branding, and boost customer loyalty.
McAfee Broadband, founded by antivirus pioneer John McAfee, is testing its next-generation wireless Internet service in preparation for a national rollout. Prior to rollout, McAfee needed a complete, reliable, end-to-end recurring billing system that could be deployed in weeks, seamlessly integrate with existing enterprise systems, and scale effortlessly from hundreds of regional testers to millions of paying clients. Aria Systems' AriaCoreÂ platform fulfilled all of these needs better than any other product currently available.
ÂIn just a few weeks, Aria Systems gave us an infinitely scalable solution with every traditional billing feature we needed, and the advanced CRM abilities we wanted,Â says Andrew Jahnke, President and CEO of McAfee Broadband, in Woodland Park, Colo. ÂNobody else comes close to Aria's experience in telecommunications, Internet, and e-commerce billing. Off-the-shelf software required us to change our business model; Custom-programmed solutions take months to build, test, and debug; and canned shopping cart applications simply don't scale, and can't handle complex recurring billing requirements. Only Aria Systems was able to give us an on-demand, cost-effective, customized service that promotes our brand, sells more products and services, and measurably increases customer satisfaction.Â
Every customer, charge, invoice, and payment that passes through McAfee Broadband's account setup, service provisioning, and accounting systems is quickly and reliably processed by Aria Systems' AriaCoreÂ platform. It is a scalable and infinitely customizable, on-demand service that is easily incorporated into any enterprise environment. The AriaCoreÂ platform requires virtually no capital investment in computer hardware, maintenance fees, or upgrades Â ever. Aria's solutions work seamlessly and securely with clients' existing computer systems and software, because they're built on OracleÂ, Linux, and other open, industry-standard technologies. AriaCoreÂ is also secured by SunGardÂ, a global leader in integrated IT solutions for financial services.
ÂWe're thrilled that McAfee Broadband, a company that's leading the way to the wireless Internet era, has chosen our AriaCoreÂ solution,Â says Edward Sullivan, President and CEO of Aria Systems. ÂAriaCoreÂ embodies our years of experience solving the toughest recurring billing requirements for leading companies in telecommunications, financial services, Internet gaming, publishing, entertainment, franchising, fund raising, and more. It was built from the ground up, and is continually refined, to help any business sell more products and services by enhancing traditional billing functions with the power of proven customer relationship practices.Â
