San Francisco—July 16, 2013—Aria Systems now provides Unified Channel Billing for businesses selling recurring revenue products and services through channels. Aria Unified Channel Billing provides channel businesses with the capability to easily set up and manage billing and reporting systems across distribution networks with any level of complexity.
“The development of Aria’s Unified Channel Billing has been driven by real world customers’ needs,” said Tom Dibble, Chief Executive Officer, Aria Systems. “Our goal was to create a seamless connection between the domains of channel distribution and recurring revenue, with appropriate controls, transparency and privacy. This key offering will help enterprises gain all the non-linear benefits of multi-tiered distribution for their recurring revenue products and services.”
As companies increasingly strive to develop strategic ongoing relationships with their partners and end-customers, channel businesses may face many difficulties in building scalable recurring revenue streams. Solely relying on channel partners for billing and reporting can create exposure to delays and errors. Aria’s Unified Channel Billing is designed to eliminate these barriers.
With Aria’s Unified Channel Billing, the entire billing process up and down each channel is automatically managed, controlled, monitored and reported for each entity in the chain. Suppliers gain full transparency for billing in the downstream direction. At the same time, resellers can anonymize data in upstream reporting to retain control of their proprietary customer and pricing information. Unified Channel Billing provides the resilience to support long term-channels as well as the flexibility to quickly adapt to short-term opportunities.
