SANTA CLARA, Calif. (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Bill McNee, Founder and CEO of Saugatuck Technology, said, "The software industry's shift from traditional software licensing to an on-demand model requires fundamental changes to operational functions, such as billing. ISVs in transition to SaaS may overlook the complexity of what is required to support SaaS billing. Even some established SaaS providers do not have adequate systems to support billing and related processes. SaaS and On-Demand Infrastructure billing and payment hubs have moved in to fill the need. Moreover, as billing and payments are outside the core competency of Cloud providers of all stripes, these hubs can provide superior services to a number of different types of cloud-based providers and at a much lower cost to the provider than homegrown systems."
OpSource Billing CLM enables sales and marketing departments of SaaS and Web companies to increase their revenues by quickly and easily changing trials, promotions and pricing, all without requiring IT help. Integrated customer analytics identify purchasing trends, enabling rapid pricing and promotion responses to changing customer behavior. And, self-service rapid response translates into increased revenues. Delivered as a Web service, OpSource Billing CLM is easy to integrate into on-demand applications, taking days rather than months. Additionally, with the integration of OpSource Billing CLM and leading SaaS applications, companies can now pass data directly and securely to third-party systems including Salesforce.com.
Michael Goolden, CEO of L7 Performance Management, said, "Billing is a critical part of conducting business and OpSource's straightforward and intuitive billing application gives us complete, end-to-end billing functionality without having to invest our resources internally. OpSource Billing CLM has enabled us to cut the time it takes to on-board customers, reduce processing costs and provide greater scalability and flexibility, which helps us collect and generate revenue quickly and efficiently."
