Top-Ranked Cloud Billing Company Enables Greater Speed and Frictionless Billing for Unparalleled Customer Experience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 23, 2016) - Aria Systems, which helps enterprises grow subscription and usage-based revenue, today announced that Pitney Bowes has selected Aria's cloud-based monetization platform as the key billing and monetization component of their new Commerce Cloud Platform. The Commerce Cloud enables speed and agility across the full commerce continuum, ranging from digital to physical, including: shipping and mailing, customer information management, location intelligence, customer engagement, and global commerce.

With the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud, businesses of all sizes can now securely access -- either through PCs, mobile devices, connected metering devices, or via APIs -- a full range of shipping, mailing, ecommerce, location intelligence, customer information management, customer engagement, and payment solutions.

Aria's cloud billing and monetization platform enables Pitney Bowes to quickly update Commerce Cloud solutions and provide frictionless billing for those offerings to meet the rapidly changing demands of today's businesses. In head-to-head tests against a competitor, Aria demonstrated that it could accelerate the go-to-market timing of new products by a phenomenal 700%. What was once a 14-month delivery process was effectively shrunk to just a few weeks.

Enterprises like Pitney Bowes rely on Aria's cloud-based monetization platform to take billing and monetization management out of the traditionally lengthy IT queue, and place it in the hands of the business owner. The Line of Business can then make changes in days, instead of months or even years, to quickly cater to customer demands for new connected service offerings with superior flexibility. For Pitney Bowes, this means the Line of Business can launch new offerings and services in a fraction of the time, without tying up internal IT resources.
