Ubersmith, an INAP (NASDAQ: INAP) company and a global leader in subscription business management software, today reported another year of progress, including the addition of new customers in 2017 such as Challenger Broadband, Cytranet, Dikaio Design, Element Critical, Evocative, Micro Logic, Micron21, Nodes Direct, ServOnDemand and Voxtell. Demonstrating global demand for Ubersmith’s product, the new customers are based in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, the U.K., UAE, China, South Korea and Australia.
Ubersmith is defining a new category called ‘subscription business management’ where customers have a single software software for billing and related functionality. That is enhanced with Ubersmith’s partner network that delivers complementary payment processing, technologies and services.
“Companies everywhere are looking for ways to transition from traditional billing to recurring billing models that are often based on consumption, and Ubersmith is delivering a product which excels at these types of billing for SaaS companies, service providers and enterprises of all sizes,” said Kurt Daniel, president of Ubersmith. “Now, we’ve got in place new features and an expanded ecosystem of partners with complementary technologies and services that companies anywhere in the world can leverage.”
In terms of product development, Ubersmith introduced a hosted version of its software software so that customers have the convenience of accessing the software without having to install and maintain it on-premises, which reduces their operating costs. This provides customers the option to use either the hosted version or their own version of Ubersmith software on-premises in their data center.
Additional product features added during the year include: an advanced usage-based billing framework; enhanced SureTax integration; self-service trial and installation of Ubersmith’s software software; an enhanced user interface; and enhanced support for smartphones and tablets. The team also added a new testing partner to complement internal testing of future releases.
To help better serve its customer base, in 2017 Ubersmith launched its first formal partner program with Authorize.net, Braintree, eBridge Solutions, GlowTouch, R1Soft, Schneider Electric, Thought Engineer, Vantiv, Virtuozzo and Wipro added as new partners.
With additional hires in sales, product marketing and business development to support customers and partners, the company grew and moved to a larger headquarters office in midtown New York City next to Bryant Park.
Ubersmith also participated in industry events, including 451 Research Group’s Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit, HostingCon, IMN Data Center & Cloud Services Forum and, for the first time, sponsored WHD.global in Germany and Cloud Expo Asia in Singapore.
