Customers have changed. They’re looking for new ways to engage with businesses. Consumers today have a new set of expectations. They want outcomes, not ownership Customization, not a generalization. Constant improvement, not planned obsolescence. 

In the old world (let’s call it the Product Economy) it was all about things. Acquiring new customers, shipping commodities, and billing for one-time transactions. But in today’s new era, it’s all about relationships. More and more customers are becoming subscribers because subscription experiences built around services meet consumers’ needs better than static offerings or a single product.

Our vision is “The World Subscribed” where one day every company will be a part of the Subscription Economy® (a phrase coined by our CEO, Tien Tzuo, and author of the best-selling book Subscribed).

The Team 

Modern finance leaders are looking for new ways to strategically advise their business and ultimately scale revenue growth. But as they adopt increasingly complex pricing models incorporating a mix of subscriptions, one-time, and usage-based offers, their financial close process has become more resource-intensive, prone to human error, and can span weeks. 

With Zuora Revenue, businesses can not only automatically recognize, reconcile, and analyze revenue in real-time, but they can accurately close the books as early as Day 0, while easily forecasting their revenue targets.
