SAN FRANCISCO, CA — June 18, 2009 — Zuora, Inc., the fastest-growing on-demand subscription billing and payments service, announced that its customer, the GigaOM Network, successfully deployed Zuora to manage GigaOM Pro, its subscription research offering.
Zuora made it possible for the GigaOM Network to quickly begin offering annual subscribers access to all GigaOM Pro content, including reports and analyst insights with fresh, original research on emerging technology markets and trends. By leaving subscription billing and payment operations to the experts, the Giga OM Network is able to focus on providing timely and affordable research to its subscribers, saving them from purchasing pricey reports that come out six months after a trend has hit the market.
“We are focused on providing timely, relevant analysis and insights that are easy to access. Zuora has provided us with a great billing service to support our online market research portal,” said Paul Walborsky, CEO, the GigaOM Network. “We were able to have the whole system up and running with a fast, flawless implementation that took less than two weeks.”
“The big question in the media industry today is how to deliver high-value content online. The GigaOM Network is clearly at the forefront of this discussion and a perfect example of a media company strategically embracing the Subscription Economy. We’re ecstatic to be working with them on their premium, subscription-based research offering,” said Tien Tzuo, CEO, Zuora.
In April 2009, Zuora launched Z-Billing 2.0, the most powerful and customizable on-demand billing platform available anywhere. Z-Billing is the first billing application designed specifically for subscription companies, giving them the flexibility and power to create, manage, and grow their business. Within one year of launching, Zuora completed its suite of products, including Z-Payments, a complete payment solution built for subscription businesses that includes the ability to accept PayPal payments; Z-Force, the first billing and payment system fully integrated with salesforce.com and 100% native to the Force.com platform; Z-Commerce, the Business Cloud developer platform; and Z-Commerce for Facebook.
Zuora has more than 100 customers, including CVSDude, Marketo, Box.net, and Sun Microsystems.
