ServiceSource Drives Recurring Revenue for SaaS Companies With New Subscription Lifecycle Management Solution

Companies Using the ServiceSource Solution Benefit From Reduced Churn and Improved Customer Loyalty

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/08/11 -- ServiceSource®, a global leader in cloud-enabled service revenue management solutions, today announced the availability of its Subscription Lifecycle Management (SLM) solution. The SLM solution drives incremental revenue for SaaS companies by increasing customer adoption, reducing churn, and expanding customer relationships and loyalty.

The SLM solution helps SaaS companies maximize revenue throughout the pivotal points of the customer lifecycle by understanding and addressing the needs of end customers. ServiceSource's decade of experience with increasing renewal rates and customer loyalty for leading software companies is the foundation for its SLM solution innovation to help customers retain and grow business in the competitive and fast-moving SaaS industry.

"SaaS companies face unique challenges in retaining and expanding customer relationships in today's increasingly competitive environment," said Mike Smerklo, chairman and CEO of ServiceSource. "Our Subscription Lifecycle Management solution not only helps SaaS companies drive adoption of their solutions to retain existing customers, but also drives up-sell and cross-sell throughout the entire customer lifecycle, capturing significant new revenue opportunities."

The threat of revenue erosion is a side effect of rapidly evolving SaaS offerings, which has made it difficult for SaaS vendors to scale operations and dedicate the resources necessary to drive customer adoption of solutions and functionality. Additionally, with fragmented customer data spread across disparate systems, gaining full insight into customer information and behavior is challenging. ServiceSource's SLM solution delivers valuable benefits to companies throughout the customer lifecycle by addressing these issues with an end-to-end cloud-enabled services solution. ServiceSource automates the subscription renewals process with an integrated suite of cloud applications and a high-touch renewals sales team, offered as a managed service.

The Subscription Lifecycle Management solution:

  • Takes a best-in-class approach to renewals
  • Dedicates focused and trained resources to driving adoption as well as cross-selling and up-selling
  • Improves customer management by providing one accurate source of global customer lifecycle data
  • Provides unparalleled visibility and control into renewal opportunities, quoting and performance

With Subscription Lifecycle Management, SaaS vendors can increase product usage, reduce customer churn rates, improve up-sell and focus their sales efforts on acquiring new customers. With a fully equipped recurring revenue data intelligence engine, purpose-build cloud applications, and renewals sales engine, the cloud-enabled service provides companies with proactive tools to solve challenges across the customer lifecycle.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
