Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Accumulus® Corporation announced today that Exit Games, a leading provider of cross-platform real-time multiplayer game engines, joins a growing list of online businesses that use Accumulus to successfully automate and manage recurring online transactions, such as billing, payment and provisioning, and grow subscription-based revenues.
With offices in Portland and Hamburg, Germany, Exit Games is the creator of the popular cloud-based gaming service, Photon Cloud, which has become the standard multiplayer gaming platform for global game developers to create true cross-platform connected experiences. With over 38,000 developers using Photon for game development, Exit Games wanted to focus on its core gaming technology rather than spend time and resources building a subscription billing system in-house.
When it came to billing for the Photon Cloud service, Exit Games had a number of core requirements: 1) complete automation of the subscription lifecycle from signup through provisioning, payment, dunning, access suspension, and cancellation; 2) the ability to support multiple subscriptions per customer and link those subscriptions to information kept on Exit Games servers; and 3) a way to offer multiple pricing tiers and make it easy for their customers to experience the power of the Photon Cloud at any stage of the games life-cycle.
Accumlus’ comprehensive suite of subscription commerce management solutions have been successfully deployed to meet the requirements of Exit Games and support the complete subscription commerce lifecycle. Accumulus provides subscription-based online businesses with a full range of the industry’s most innovative solutions for managing subscription commerce, including comprehensive management capabilities for very complex metered or tiered usage pricing models, support for multiple divisions, and custom integration.
Working with the Accumulus team, Exit Games provides a fully integrated recurring billing solution as part of Photon Cloud.
“We worked closely with Exit Games to implement an automated subscription commerce management solution that seamlessly integrated recurring billing and manages all the complexities of Exit Games’ subscription lifecycle,” said Christian Dreke, CEO and Co-Founder of Accumulus.
Today, customers can log in and update their payment information, view subscriptions, as well as past statements. The system also has the flexibility to manage multiple subscriptions, pricing and promotional offers.
“Automation of the entire subscription lifecycle is an important part that allows Exit Games to offer the Photon Cloud services on a large scale and at affordable price points,” said Chris Wegmann, CTO of Exit Games. “Exit Games can also view how customers utilize the various offers and how customers change between tiers over time. It’s a win-win for our company, as we grow, and for our customers.”
