Aria vs Stripe

  1. True payment processor portability
    Aria supports concurrent integration to multiple payment processors in a single Aria deployment. Aria manages electronic payment detail in its PCI level 1 compliant encrypted database, to allow clients to manage payment costs across various payment processors.
  2. Support for complex business models
    Easily offer subscription, non-subscription and usage-based offers in an open product catalog, while enforcing sophisticated rules for allowability, exclusions, grouping, hierarchy, and more. Support complex account structures for B2C, B2B, and B2B2X business structures.
  3. Enterprise level service
    Aria’s clients are not just nameless companies in a sea of self-service customers, staffed with IT coders integrating to an API through a self-service portal. Aria provides white glove service for onboarding and go-live, enabling business users to configure to their business goals.
Payment processing

Accepts wide variety of payment methods, including credit card, direct debit, ACH/e-check, B2B Net Terms, lock box, and alternative payment methods like ApplePay.

Payment processor portability

Aria supports concurrent integrations to multiple payment processors in a single Aria deployment. When Aria is managing the electronic payment details in our PCI level 1 compliant encrypted database, this “processor portability” allows the Aria client to optimize the use of specific payment processors to manage overall costs by region, payment methods, and payment processors.

Supporting business complexity

Easily offer and bill for both subscription and non-subscription offers in an open product catalog, while enforcing sophisticated rules for allowability, exclusions, grouping, hierarchy, and more. Support complex account structures for B2C, B2B, and B2B2X business structures.

Managing diverse subscriber relationships

Your subscriber relationships can be complicated, involving multiple departments, divisions, locations, and payment methods. Customers demand account relationships and payment relationships in complex ways like parent-pay, child-pay, sponsored, pooled usage, or touching large numbers of devices/fleets of vehicles where consumption and payment are not the same.

Serving enterprise level needs

Enterprise level service from a team of experts who provide best practice guidance and operational excellence vs only self-serve and self-integration.

Rating sophisticated usage

More than simple metered billing of rate x price. Expand your offers, customer base, and total available market, with the ability to apply sophisticated usage ratings to your offerings, to trigger notifications, and drive action based on usage data. Tracking customer activity by analyzing usage, even when there is no charge associated with the usage, is important for Freemium adoption and monetizing new offers. Load usage data from a variety of sources, frequencies, and volumes, each with different processing requirements

Automating dunning and collections

Manage fully customizable schedules for sending customized notices, apply late fees, limiting services/pausing access. Do so for different cohorts such as payment method (Credit Card; ACH; Contractual Terms with Checking lock-box), by products deployed, or by geography served.

Orchestrating your business

Your recurring revenue billing doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It touches many parts of your business and many existing systems. Update and synchronize data, automate business processes, and engage customers, without creating custom code that must be maintained. Increase customer satisfaction and lifetime value as you watch out for our customers and your business, actively orchestrating interactions and revenue moments.

Integrating via APIs

Stripe offers a developer-friendly API-first integration capabilities, sample code, and SDKs to get up and running quickly. Aria Systems offers this as well, and API-access to capabilities outside of payments.

Integrating to ecosystem

Aria Systems integrates to legacy systems and modern public-cloud solutions for CRM, CPQ, ERP, Tax Processing, Usage Processing, Physical Delivery, and legacy systems in specialized verticals.

No-code configuration

Remove manual intervention from business processes, such as spreadsheet manipulation, or direct management of billing and invoice runs. Incorporate your company’s unique processes into your monetization platform with a workflow engine operating on the same enterprise-grade infrastructure and SLA.

Data feed to data lake

Recognize a strategic imperative for data to drive action, which demands that data from multiple systems and sources are integrated. Not another BI tool. Go beyond standard reports via an always-on feed of data into your data lake to merge with other data sets where you can perform advanced analytics like machine learning and artificial intelligence. Data-repository agnostic – choose whether to push to brand-name or proprietary data lake.
