Aria’s Media and Publishing Suite addresses the specific needs of traditional media companies embracing digital business models
San Francisco, CA – November 8, 2018 – Aria Systems, the leader in helping large enterprises grow subscription- and usage-based revenue, announced today that it has launched the Aria Media and Publishing Suite (AMPS), enabling traditional publishing and media companies to more effectively monetize their content with a wide variety of subscriptions and consumption-based models across both print and digital channels.
In the media and publishing industry, the transition from print to digital continues to accelerate, fueled by the growth of mobile and internet usage. As consumers opt for flexible digital offerings tailored to their individual preferences, businesses that offer traditional print media products are seeking to transform their businesses and introduce a range of streaming content and multi-media services.
AMPS is designed with the unique subscription and customer management requirements of media and publishing companies in mind. With this industry-focused solution, companies can manage the entire life cycle of both digital and traditional print subscribers in a unified environment while accelerating revenue growth through new digital content and bundled print offerings.
“Even as content providers in the media and publishing industries migrate to digital models and introduce new high growth digital content offerings, the traditional print side of their respective businesses remains a core element in serving their customers holistically,” said Tom Dibble, President and CEO, Aria Systems. “AMPS is a collection of applications designed exclusively for media and publishing companies. The platform can flexibly integrate into existing legacy systems, resulting in a single solution capable of handling product bundling, complex recurring billing and customer life cycle management.”
With AMPS, content providers and publishers can manage distribution calendars and schedules, run promotional campaigns, offer discounts, bundle products, handle payments and manage customer access rights for both digital and print content products, all with simplicity, more granularity and control. The applications sit seamlessly between the Aria billing and monetization platform and existing legacy systems.
AMPS is deployed at Amedia, a Norwegian publishing company with more than 60 regional publications across the country that reach millions of digital and print subscribers daily. Amedia is now able to centralize billing and subscription management for all print and digital properties on a modern technology platform, giving the company the flexibility to provide subscribers with customized pricing and product bundles, unified invoicing and a better customer experience.
“The Aria Media and Publishing Suite extends Aria’s billing and monetization platform to meet the needs of media companies like ours,” said Haakon Johansen, Vice President Consumer Markets at Amedia. “We can now expand our product portfolio by offering new and unique experiences and services to both our digital and print subscribers.”
