SAN JOSE, CA, September 17, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — As a part of their continued efforts to bring value to their customers, Scio Consulting (http://www.sciodev.com) and Aria Systems (http://www.ariasystems.com) announced a strategic partnership to offer enablement services for independent software vendors (ISVs) looking to bring their products to the on-demand business model by using Aria’s A+ Billing and Customer Lifecycle Management Platform for subscription businesses.
Aria Systems is the market-leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based on demand and subscription billing services. Aria’s payment solutions help software companies to increase profitability, boost customer adoption and control billing costs while maintaining focus on their core value proposition.
Scio Consulting provides SaaS enablement services to ISVs by leveraging SaaS business and technical expertise, agile development practices and cost effective delivery from its nearshore development center in Mexico. "Previously, when building a SaaS applications for our customers we had to build the functionality from scratch for handling billing and payments, on-boarding, provisioning and user management," said Guillaume Gros, Technical Director for Scio Consulting. "By leveraging Aria’s customer lifecycle management solutions, we can now focus development resources on the core application, reducing time to market and total development costs for our customers."
"We are excited to partner with Scio, as they are clearly a company that shares our enthusiasm and vision around enabling subscription based business models," said Tom Dibble, Vice President of Business Development at Aria Systems. "Software companies that want to "SaaSify" their software offerings can rely on the Aria and Scio’s partnership to get their offerings in production quickly and cost effectively. Whether launching a new subscription based initiative, or scaling an existing one, the combined expertise of Aria and Scio will provide tremendous value to our respective customers."
"At Scio we have been helping companies to bring SaaS applications to market for years, utilizing .NET and open source technologies such as Java and PHP," states Luis Aburto, CEO of Scio Consulting. "Initially, there were no Cloud solutions like Aria’s that could be leveraged, so everything had to be custom-built on every project. When Cloud-based solutions for customer lifecycle management started to appear we began evaluating alternatives. We concluded that Aria Systems provides the highest value and flexibility. Nowadays, instead of building custom pricing and billing engines for our clients, we recommend leveraging Aria’s solution and we help our customers to integrate their on-demand products with Aria, for a fraction of the cost. They receive more functionality and greater flexibility for facing changes in pricing or billing models in the future, all while saving in development and operating costs. Everybody wins."
