Company News

Zuora, the company that defined and continues to lead the subscription billing industry, today announced the availability of its May ’10 release. May ’10 includes enhancements and additions across Zuora’s entire subscription billing product line, including Z-Billing, Z-Payments, Z-Force, and Z-Commerce.

Customers continue to express excitement about each and every one of Zuora’s monthly releases:

“Supporting ACH payments with Chase Paymentech is critical to our business. Zuora listened to our needs and delivered. Thank you Zuora!” says Robert Maynard, Chief Executive Officer, PrivacyMaxx.

Jeff Zie CEO of Moviestorm, a leading provider of digital animation software, says, “It’s amazing how Zuora continues to deliver on this constant pace of innovation month after month.”

“My monthly projections just got a whole lot more accurate with Zuora’s API Support for charge segments,” said Ben Saren of CitySquares.com. “Being able to better calculate today’s MRR or the next services start-date is critical to accurate reporting.”

“We told Zuora we needed support for Litle in order to scale our global business with Z-Billing,” said Owen Tripp, COO of Reputation Defender, the world’s leading online reputation management and privacy company. “They had the integration up and running quickly. Now that is some serious customer focus.”

“Billing with variable upfront costs and changing recurring fees can be confusing to manage. The additions to the Product Rate Plan and Product Rate Plan Charge fields in the API will give us greater flexibility to extend existing Zuora subscriptions and dynamically apply one-off and recurring charges for our customers,” said Roland Flanagan of Online Marketing Group.

Juan Delard, CTO of Quotify/LifeEvents Media, uses Zuora to develop all of the packaging and pricing for quoting and lead generation business and says, “Zuora’s new releases always include something new that helps us improve and simplify our business processes.”

“Zuora is like a giant aspirin. No more payment processing headaches,” said Perry Tancredi, Sr. Director Products, Quova Inc. “My team has more time to dedicate to solving the IP geolocation puzzle, bringing new Quova products to market, faster.”
