I entered the Internet industry a decade ago and today, I do 90% of my shopping online and a few years ago, I decided to get rid of my television and cable service. However, thanks to live streaming video over the Internet, I can still watch the latest episode of Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor and also get real-time access to live events.
Today, I am happy to share how Ustream, the leader in live Internet video, has used Zuora to rapidly expand its offerings to its millions of users across the globe. If you haven’t heard of Ustream, Ustream enables anyone with a camera and an Internet connection to start broadcasting to a global audience of unlimited size in less than two minutes. You can watch live events from Apple’s iPad2 launch last week to the protestors in Wisconsin or President Obama’s latest Whitehouse press conference.
With Zuora’s online billing solutions, Ustream has launched multiple products in a matter of weeks. And more importantly with each new product, Ustream was able to get to market faster without having to do any coding or development work. For example, after the initial product launch, it took Ustream only two and three weeks to launch additional new products, including adding enhanced online billing capabilities for its customers such as the ability to check usage data online, download invoices and review billing account information.
Thank you Ustream for providing a great service! The team at Zuora looks forward to your continued innovation and new products!
