We have seen cloud based subscription service  providers have new billing and revenue management processes that typically go beyond the  capabilities of their current financial infrastructure. Each account requires a recurring bill that accurately presents charges for past transactions, current services, and future subscriptions. Integration with metering is essential to operating at scale. Revenue accounting policies must be enforced throughout the process.  Otherwise, revenue items, especially overage fees, can easily fall through the cracks. However, capital expenditure (CAPEX)  and Operational expenditure (OPEX) and time to market are the key challenges for these service providers.

SURE! is an ideal solution to address all the above challenges. SURE!  provides a single On-Demand Billing Platform that drives service bundling, metering, billing and accounting directly from customer contract and usage data.
