How Cloud, SaaS and other Providers Can Profit From Subscription Billing
Wednesday September 28, 2011 12:00pm ET/ 9:00am PT

A Webinar about how companies building subscription businesses can build personal and sustainable relationships with customers, as well as long-term profitability and loyalty, will take place September 28th at 12:00 EDT.

Yankee Group Analyst Susan McNeice will join Chris Couch COO, Transverse, Susana Schwartz, Transverse and and Chris DiMarco, TMCNet Editor, to discuss how businesses can evolve beyond simple payment gateways toward "Dynamic Revenue Management," which turns billing into a strategic asset capable of moving customers through the 5 levels of the “Subscription Maturity Model. Learn how each stage moves companies toward true Personalization and micro-segmentation of customers for individualized services.

The panelists will define and educate listeners about the critical elements of Dynamic Revenue Management, including:

  • Sophisticated, real-time rating engines;
  • Rapid-fire analytics capable of converting flat data into dynamic sources of information;
  • Business-friendly front-ends and dashboards that empower business users to make decisions without having to wait for IT resources to free up.

Additionally, participants will learn why the on-demand, software-as-a-service model for Dynamic Revenue Management can help companies achieve personalization without multi-million-dollar price tags, vendor lock-in and integration headaches, or need for coding and management of licenses, upgrades and changes.

See how companies of all sizes can cost-effectively rate and bill large amounts of usage events, as well as support bi-directional Advice-of-Charge and Entitlement functions, and requests from 3rd party systems.
