Subscription Client Case Study:

Integrating Existing Data

Client Challenge

Our client, a European-based cloud hosting company, needs to be able to quickly and easily validate that each customer has an account before allowing them to make a purchase. They also need all customer information to be kept current in their Salesforce account without having to invest considerable time and resources into manual updates.

Our Global Subscription Capabilities

  • Hosted Sign-Up Process

    We help you acquire new subscribers by supporting various sign-up scenarios: trials, discounts for designated periods and direct payments (bypassing a trial entirely). Alternatively, you can integrate your existing sign-up process with our subscription platform for use with free trials.

  • PCI Compliance & Data Security

    Your subscribers share personal information – we keep it safe. Our hosted sign-up process is fully compliant with PCI DSS standards and other industry regulations for data transfer and security.

  • Single Sign-On (SSO) Technology

    Using SSO technology, we enable you to grant your customers access to all authorized subscription applications and resources through a single point of authentication.

    Set your own pricing parameters or leverage our built-in GeoIP detection technology to display prices that resonate with customers in each region.

  • Optimized Customer Experience

    With our extensive portfolio of languages, currencies and payment methods, we ensure a fully optimized customer experience proven to increase conversions.

  • Reporting & Analytics

    Through A/B testing, advanced segmentation and extensive reporting capabilities, you get access to the most up-to-date insights – like churn rate, trial conversion rate and customer lifetime value.

  • Centralized Customer Database

    We provide you with real-time visibility into all aspects of your subscription business by consolidating customer data from your CRM, ERP, email platform and other business systems.

  • Customer Self-Service

    Using “My Account” functionality, your customers can upgrade or downgrade, change their billing information, update their personal data and more. You can also drive more revenue by displaying targeted banner ads to your customers on their account page.

  • Interactive Analytics

    Our in-depth analytics don’t just inform your subscription billing strategy – they take action. Automatically issue notifications for subscription events like:

    • Sign-up welcome
    • Trial expiration
    • Payment expiration reminder
    • Autorenewal reminder
  • Real-Time Marketing

    The rule-based engine in our subscription billing platform triggers emails, in-app notifications and banner ads with messaging and promotional offers to build customer relationships.

Subscription Client Case Study:

Billing Subscribers

Client Challenge

Our client, a Polish file sharing service, had just launched their subscription offering by selling gigabytes of data that renew every week, month, quarter or year. But our client discovered that some customers wanted to buy only a set amount of data at a time, either as an add-on to their subscription or as a one-time purchase. They needed a billing solution to support these complex scenarios.

  • Intelligent subscription billing that knows when to securely bill each customer, for how much and via which payment method
