Dealing With Revenue Churn And Subscription Renewal

Across a wide spectrum of service providers the single most important challenge is to consolidate revenue stream. In hindsight, it means firm control on subscription renewal. Many enterprises have built significant switching costs. A high switching cost serves as a penalty for being unfaithful to the existing service provider. Consumers have become smarter. They do not want to be with a brand where they lose the option of switching. So they straight away reject service providers who incorporate switching costs. There is a smarter way to handle subscription renewal.

Service providers can make use billing analytics to track consumers. Recurring billing for an old customer indicates brand loyalty. Coupons and discounts can be offered to customers depending on the volume of purchases made. The case history of every customer is auto archived in the invoicing software. With recurring purchases, there are recurring payments and the customer moves up the loyalty ladder. The software shows the different grade of discounts he is eligible for.
