Aria Systems and NetSuite Partner to Deliver Usage-Based Billing on SuiteCloud Platform
NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), a leading vendor of cloud computing business management software suites, and Aria Systems, Inc., a leading provider of on- demand billing and subscription management solutions, today announced a partnership that offers Aria’s usage-based billing functionality as an integrated part of NetSuite’s core billing engine. Developed using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud platform, the new billing solution from Aria Systems is designed to address the needs of companies that are currently offering subscription-based products or looking to expand their current business with new subscription-based revenue streams. In particular, businesses that bill based on usage such as online data storage, ad space, pay-per-click and minutes used are particularly suited to benefit from the new integrated solution.

As NetSuite’s preferred solution for high-volume usage-based billing, Aria’s Billing Platform has been tightly coupled with the NetSuite business management software suite using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud platform. The combined solution provides easy-to-use subscription management capabilities for administrators as well as a seamless and intuitive experience for NetSuite users. The first phase of the integration, available now, automatically synchronizes customer information between NetSuite’s native billing engine and the Aria Billing Platform. The Aria Billing Platform manages billing processes centered around usage-based billing and updates NetSuite with payment information as payments are received, including detailed invoice information. The integration optimizes workflow around usage billing scenarios, reduces costs for joint customers and minimizes the risk of errors associated with manual processes. Additional phases of integration have already been defined based on early customer feedback and are currently under development.
“Usage-based billing is playing an increasingly important role in the strategies of companies across many different industries,” said Ed Sullivan, CEO at Aria Systems. “Given their global reach, huge installed base, and market position, we’re very pleased to be partnering with NetSuite to offer a complete SaaS-based solution to provide usage-based billing to support subscription-based businesses.”
“NetSuite has a strong offering for technology companies that have a particular need for the usage-based capabilities that Aria brings to the table,” said Evan Goldberg, CTO and founder of NetSuite. “The Aria Billing Platform provides the functional breadth, product maturity, and SaaS-based delivery model that we look for in our SuiteCloud developer partners and serves as a great addition to NetSuite’s built-in billing capabilities.”
