As a result of the acquisition Cloud Nation now provides a complete suite of subscription and recurring billing solutions to serve the SMB market worldwide
According to Tom Poole, President of Cloud Nation, “The subscription economy is absolutely exploding. We actually started using Subscription Bridge a number of months ago within Cloud Nation and liked it so well we pursued it as an acquisition. The platform itself is an extremely powerful and flexible tool that helps companies large and small convert their strategy from a one-time purchase scenario to a subscription based revenue stream. Projections are that over 40% of technology offerings will be sold through a subscription model by 2015. Cloud Nation is in the position to enable technology partners with the ability to embrace the new subscription economy today.”

The simplicity of its architecture allows us to customize and brand it for individual companies rapidly without custom code. Our ability to integrate with popular products such as QuickBooks (NASDAQ:INTU) and Salesforce (NYSE:CRM) make it a clear choice for companies interested in quickly and cost effectively embracing a pay as you go strategy.”
