San Francisco, CA - Jun 19, 2013
Subscription billing expert Aria Systems today announced its further expansion into Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Enterprise market in support of the next stage of the company’s global growth strategy. Enterprise adoption in EMEA is mirroring trends in North America, where a recent Incyte Group study found nearly one half of all businesses (46.7 percent) are currently operating, developing, or investigating recurring revenue-based offerings. Aria has already established an industry leadership position in Europe with brand name customers including Telekom Denmark, Issuu, and Eniro, among others.
With this expansion, enterprise companies in the telecommunications, technology and media industries, in particular, can benefit from greater access to Aria’s cloud-based billing solutions to meet their subscription billing and management needs.
“Aria Systems delivers a high performance, cloud-billing solution that enables recurring revenue initiatives worldwide, which is perfect for meeting global demand for a truly enterprise-grade and highly configurable billing platform,” said Riccardo Vicari, VP of Enterprise Sales for EMEA, Aria Systems. “Our ability to offer any recurring service in multiple currencies and monetization options gives global companies the flexibility to create and launch new products without limitations.”
Aria recently appointed Vicari, a long-time billing expert, as VP of Enterprise Sales for EMEA to lead the company’s expansion in these regions. The EMEA markets are a key driver of the 35% annual growth rates projected by analyst firm IDC for the global cloud billing market. Based out of Aria’s new European headquarters in London, Vicari is responsible for increasing adoption of Aria Systems’ cloud subscription billing platform among enterprise companies across EMEA.
“We are excited to be expanding our presence in EMEA, ” said Tom Dibble, President and CEO, Aria Systems. “Our revenue growth in both North America and Europe has more than doubled over the last year, and we anticipate this momentum to continue as we strive to make global enterprises successful with their subscription commerce businesses.”
