According to the report, “Customers praised the maturity and flexibility of Aria Systems’ platform (e.g., monetization models, integrations, user personas) to work in their complex enterprise environment along with the close services/support relationship to ensure the platform addresses the customer’s current and near-future needs.

Finally, the report noted, “Aria Systems has the trust of its customers and several capabilities that make it a platform for their future, including dunning, data streaming, online learning, marketplace support, wide variety of integrations, microservices-based architecture, no-code workflow tool, and the support of Aria Systems’ deployment on Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Network platforms.”

Vendors included in this IDC MarketScape are those targeting enterprises with complex billing needs, more than half of whom are still using legacy ERP, spreadsheets, and outdated manual processes. As these enterprises adopt recurring business models, they not only require enhanced billing capabilities but also the ability to efficiently manage the entire lifecycle process to ensure customer happiness. Since its inception, Aria has been providing Active Orchestration as an underpinning of its technology for customers spanning multiple industries, elevating the role of a billing system to that of a central hub in customer ecosystems.

“It is an honor to be named a Leader by the IDC MarketScape in the areas of billing and subscription management,” said Tom Dibble, President & CEO, Aria Systems. “We believe this latest IDC MarketScape report reaffirms the power of Aria’s cloud-native SaaS subscription and usage billing platform to support large B2B, B2C, or B2B2X companies that have complex business models and need a robust, scalable, and resilient solution that can monetize those models at scale, no matter what the future brings.
