2014 Billing Innovators Summit

The 2014 Billing Innovators Summit will bring together business and finance executives, IT professionals, investors, industry analysts, vendors and media interested in 21st century solutions to increasingly complex billing challenges. A sophisticated and flexible billing capability has emerged as a key, must-have building block of modern technology-enabled enterprise – one that directly impacts time-to-revenue. 

A key driver behind the increased interest in billing is the proliferation of new products and services and the business requirement for flexible, configurable billing solutions that can handle a wide variety of consumption-based and subscription-based business models, among others.

Billing is one function in the middle of the intersection of a business and its customers and is often a source of friction. A success or failure in billing can either elevate or sink a customer relationship, and impact market competitiveness. Business and IT leaders’ perception of billing is evolving from that of a back office “necessary evil” to a key business tool on the critical path to launch of new initiatives and one that has a dramatic impact on time-to-revenue.

Selecting an appropriate billing solution is more complex today, as the number of choices has expanded dramatically. Attending this conference will bring clarity and focus to the challenge of unshackling 21st century businesses from billing systems limitations. This is the only independent conference designed to help companies of all sizes optimize the evaluation, selection, and implementation of billing solutions.
