Aria Systems Offers Unified Channel Billing

A breakthrough for businesses using a recurring revenue model to sell products and services through channels

"The development of Aria's Unified Channel Billing capability has been driven by real world customers' needs," said Aria Systems CEO Tom Dibble. Aria has announced Unified Channel Billing, which provides channel businesses with the capability to easily set up and manage billing and reporting systems across distribution networks with any level of complexity.

With Aria's Unified Channel Billing capability, 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.

Previously, a disconnect has persisted between recurring revenue businesses and channel marketing. Channel businesses typically rely on CRM solutions to automate partnerships with wholesalers, distributors, ISVs, VARs, and other resellers, but this approach is oriented toward individual transactions. As companies increasingly strive to develop ongoing relationships with their customers, channel businesses face many difficulties for building recurring revenue streams. Relying on partners for billing and reporting creates exposure to delays and risks of inaccuracy. Aria's Unified Channel Billing was designed to eliminate these barriers.

Unified Channel Billing provides end-to-end SaaS billing and reporting across business partnerships with any level of complexity. All the advantages of a recurring revenue strategy are now available for channel businesses, exclusively from Aria Systems.
