Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting and Zuora, collaboration in the field of business transformation consulting for a subscription business model

We will provide a full array of services from the development of new business based on a subscription business model and formulation of business strategy to the design of operational processes, design of system configuration, and system implementation and deployment.

Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting LLC (“DTC,” headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo, CEO: Sooyoung Song) and Zuora Japan K.K. (“Zuora,” headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo, President: Junichiro Kuwano), the Japanese subsidiary of Zuora, Inc., the world leader in subscription management platforms, will collaborate in order to begin offering consulting services for furthering business transformation on the basis of a subscription business model.

 

A subscription business model is one in which goods and services are offered through regular purchases or use, allowing business operators to earn sustained revenue. From digital content offered in the form of regular purchases or use to management services in which devices and support services are packaged together, this type of business model is rapidly expanding into a wide range of industries, covering both goods and services. Through revenue stabilization, businesses can provide their customers with new value and convenience, resulting in sustained relationships with customers, which in turn provides opportunities for improving the earning power of businesses.

 

Targeting businesses aiming to switch over to a subscription business model, DTC and Zuora will be working together to offer a full array of consulting services, including not only the design of services taking into account customer needs, competitiveness, and customer journeys, but also the design of subscription management operations for efficient and flexible conduct of business, implementation of systems, and even the mind transformation away from traditional views on conducting business.

 

Drawing on knowledge and experience earned by making full use of the global Deloitte network, which includes 240,000 professionals in 150 countries around the world, DTC is the market leader in business transformation consulting across industries. We provide support from the concept formulation stage all the way to implementation and deployment, engaging in services such as the development of new business based on a subscription business model, formulation of business strategy by involving the client’s stakeholders, design of operational processes for efficient operation for a subscription business model, and overall system design with a view to integration with existing systems.
