2020 leverages cleverbridge to accelerate global expansion and transition to a SaaS business model

Partnership with cleverbridge provides robust foundations for 2020’s digital transformation strategy

CHICAGO (March 25, 2021) – cleverbridge, an online global billing solution for digital goods, online services and SaaS companies, has expanded its partnership with 2020. 2020 is the world’s leading provider of applications and enterprise solutions dedicated to interior design, space planning, and furniture manufacturing.

With hundreds of thousands of customers, 2020 relies on cleverbridge to provide the support, technology and expertise used as part of the transformation of its transactional business model.

Since launching with cleverbridge in 2016, 2020 has progressively digitized its operations and transitioned from a perpetual license business model to a SaaS business model. After years of successfully utilizing cleverbridge’s commerce solutions to enable online sales, 2020 looked to cleverbridge to help further accelerate the migration of its perpetual installed base to subscription licensing.

The expanded partnership is three-fold and includes implementing renewal automation processes, onboarding new products, and expanding into additional countries – three extremely powerful catalysts for growth and increased revenue.

“With our strategic initiative to accelerate our transition to a SaaS business model and our objectives to expand into new markets with new subscription products, we need a robust e-commerce solution provider with the expertise to manage subscriptions and automate renewal flows, while also providing full international coverage,” said 2020 Vice President of eBusiness, Marketing and Customer Success Ken Short. “We feel cleverbridge is the right partner to help us achieve our objectives.”

Renewal Automation
2020 will migrate maintenance and support renewals from a manual process to a completely automated subscription renewal process using the cleverbridge platform. This migration will enhance efficiency and provide an enriched self-service customer experience.

New Products & Global Expansion
Due to the success 2020 has already experienced with cleverbridge’s automation, retention and payment acceptance rates, the company will migrate additional subscription products to an auto renewal process this year and expand its e-commerce operations to new regions such as EMEA and Asia Pacific.

cleverbridge handles international payment processing, provides localized checkouts in multiple languages, and manages tax and compliance to make it easy for 2020 to share innovative products with customers across the globe.

“We have an incredibly collaborative relationship with 2020,” said cleverbridge Vice President of Global Accounts Kerry Dean. “Our team is thrilled to continue to help them navigate the complexities and challenges of global selling to expand their market share, build strong customer relationships, and grow recurring revenue.”
