Webinar - TMC and Transverse Present a Webinar on How To Profit from Subscription Billing

NORWALK, CT (August 22, 2011)  TMC – a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online – and Transverse – a leader in on-demand subscription billing – today announced a Webinar event, “How Cloud, SaaS and other Providers Can Profit From Subscription Billing.” The panel discussion will go live on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 at 12:00 PM EDT / 9:00 AM PDT.

The complimentary Webinar will reveal how companies building subscription businesses can move toward personal and sustainable relationships with customers, and hence toward long-term profitability and loyalty.

Yankee Group (News - Alert) (News - Alert) Analyst Susan McNeice will join Chris Couch, COO of Transverse; Susana Schwartz, former B/OSS Editor; and Chris DiMarco, TMCNet Managing Web 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. “We will define the critical elements of Dynamic Revenue Management for achieving personalization and profitability,” said Transverse CEO James Messer (News - Alert) (News - Alert), referring to:

  • 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.

He added that participants will learn about 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. Learn 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.
