SaaS Industry Pioneers Combine to Deliver Pre-Integrated, One-Click Solution Between Billing and Accounting Systems
BERWYN, Pa. - (06/17/2008) Boomi, the market and technology leader for on-demand integration, today announced that it has partnered with Zuora to enable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) integration for Zuora's on-demand billing application with financial and customer relationship management (CRM) applications. Zuora is embedding the Boomi On-Demand℠ offering to provide its on-demand Z-Billing users with the ability to integrate with any SaaS or on-premises application directly from the Web without the burden of installing integration software packages or hardware appliances.
Using Boomi On-Demand, Zuora's customers can integrate Z-Billing with QuickBooks, for example, by simply selecting the prepackaged integration from a menu, and the integration is complete. There is no data mapping, coding, software downloads or hardware purchases. If the end customer wants to integrate Z-Billing with other applications, the integrations are built, deployed and managed by Boomi On-Demand using only a browser. Connections are built visually with familiar point-and-click, drag-and-drop ease. No coding is required, and implementations are accomplished with exceptional speed and at a fraction of the cost of conventional integration solutions.
"Partnering with Boomi is a natural fit for us, as Zuora's Z-Billing platform and Boomi On-Demand are built specifically to serve the complex needs of the SaaS industry," explained Tien Tzuo, Zuora's CEO. "The subscription model is advancing quickly in many industries and the Zuora team has been working in this paradigm since its inception. With the introduction of Boomi On-Demand into the SaaS world, integration is removed as a barrier for adoption and companies of all sizes can join the subscription-model revolution."
"Zuora understands the SaaS market like few others – many of their executives were on the team that built salesforce.com from the ground up, and now they're again pioneering the industry with the introduction of cloud-based billing," said Boomi CEO and president Bob Moul. "It's particularly gratifying to be selected as the SaaS integration partner for a visionary company in this market. We look forward to working with Zuora to help drive the growth of the SaaS industry by eliminating the challenges of billing and integration."
By delivering integration on-demand, Boomi has redefined the economics of purchasing integration capabilities. For the first time, companies can pay by connection and not for an entire integration software suite. Companies can employ the capabilities and functionality of sophisticated enterprise integration software at a fraction of the cost.
Zuora, Inc. is a Redwood City based company created to support the growing subscription market with a complete solution that is flexible, powerful, and integrates with the entire company infrastructure. The platform created by Zuora changes the way subscription businesses manage and sell to customers, as well as allows them bring new products to the market in less time, and with less hassle.
