Next-Gen Billing Goes Beyond Subscriptions

Apr 21, 2020 2:30:00 PM

Is your system ready for pay-per-use and other models?

Subscription billing has taken our economy by storm, and probably you have also embraced the subscription economy. With the anything-as-a-service, it was paramount to ride the recurring revenue wave and to make your products and services available as a subscription. But has it delivered to the promise? And have you seen the results from your subscription billing? In this blog, we discuss the limitations of subscription billing and where to go from here.

Next generation billing models, such as ay-per-use

The rigidity of subscription billing

Anyone who has a gym subscription will instantly recognize the issue with recurring revenue. You either paid too much or way too little. Similarly, how are you sure you have optimized your recurring revenue? And how will this evolve in the future?

A modern billing system will be able to adjust seamlessly to your current and future billing needs.

From Subscription to pay-per-use

Subscription billing extended to agile billing

Recently, one of our clients told us their clients were asking them to adapt to their new reality:

“Our clients love our product, but the usage of it varies wildly during the year. As they charge their clients after they delivered, our monthly fee is either too high and eats up a lot of the cash flow, or too low in relation to the usage.” Your subscription model is too narrow for us. We would love you to adopt a model that reflects “pay-per-use”.

Agile billing: flexible billing to fit your needs

Flexible future billing

How can you keep and optimize your recurring revenue beyond subscription billing? By adopting a future proof agile billing system, that -no matter what happens- can cope with the business models you apply to meet your future demand from your clients. Sounds complex? That is what Good Sign has been doing since it was founded, helping clients deal with complex contracts to meet the most demanding situations.
