I am the Founder and CEO of OneBill Software Inc. and lead a team of 120+ employees across our offices in the US, Canada, UK, India, and Australia.
What was the objective behind coming up with this software?
Prior to starting OneBill in 2009, I worked for Portal Software, where we developed a billing solution for On-Premise deployment only. However, I found that as businesses were increasingly moving into the cloud world, they were not open to investing millions of dollars to obtain a software license and then spending a few million more dollars on implementation costs to deploy the actual billing solution that meets their requirements. This created a significant barrier to other smaller service providers accessing a solution. So, I saw an opportunity to provide a flexible cloud-based, OSS/BSS solution for businesses of all sizes with varying needs.
Moreover, while there were other billing solutions out there offering cloud-based platforms, they were yet to infiltrate complex verticals such as Telecommunications. Furthermore, these other solutions were focused on the billing needs of those offering purely subscription-based services.
How is your software beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other software alternatives available in the market?
Most cloud-based billing platforms that exist in the market are highly focused on subscription-based or recurring billing. While this was one of the dominant pricing strategies 10 years ago, we are finding a shift where consumption-based billing will be the ‘go to’ tactic in the market. According to OpenView Partners, 45% of SaaS businesses adopted usage-based pricing in 2021 (versus 34% in 2020) and it is predicted that 56% of companies will be using this strategy by 2023.
Through the OneBill platform, businesses can easily deploy consumption-based, subscription-based, rule-based, volume-based, overage-based pricing, one-time, and even a hybrid of all of the above. Therefore, we find a lot of businesses that have complex pricing strategies generally approach us for our expertise in this area.
What industries do you generally cater to? Which industries in general are highly benefiting by using your software?
We have customers from 14+ industries using OneBill. However, our center of gravity is definitely in servicing the SaaS, Telecommunications, Logistics, IoT and Enterprise markets. As mentioned above, the industries that get the most value out of OneBill are those that have a monetization strategy based on a hybrid business model, a combination of subscription and metered usage of their product or service, and have complex pricing structures.
What are the key features of your software that makes it stand apart from your competitor products in the market?
There are 3 features that particularly differentiate OneBill from other competitor products in the market. Firstly, we have developed a proprietary Service Delivery Platform that enables our billing platform to create and automate workflows to activate any downstream systems, so that a product or service order can be orchestrated and fulfilled. Secondly, our advanced Usage Rating Engine is able to compute layers upon layers of detailed usage data (e.g. minutes, volume, etc.) and accurately apply it to a customer invoice. Lastly, through our Channel Partner capability, businesses are empowered to set up multiple tiers and levels of partners across varying geographies, configure unique product catalogs with local currency pricing, automatically ingest and convert a high volume of usage rating data files into error-free invoices, provide partners with the ability white-label and bill-on-behalf-of, streamline and accurately manage tax compliance and reporting, support flexible settlement definition (including fixed cost, revenue share, profit share and more), and manage the settlement of commissions in real-time.
What is the customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
Within OneBill, we measure customer satisfaction based on how much we are able to automate their end-to-end revenue management without any leakage of revenue so that they can maximize their margin without leaving money on the table. We have a customer success team in place that is dedicated to ensuring that customers are satisfied with their OneBill experience. This involves conducting quarterly calls with these customers, gaining their feedback through a satisfaction survey, and also being responsive to any issues that may arise.
Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what is the percentage of repeat customers that you have?
No, our customers are not repetitive. They usually engage in long-term contracts with at least a 2-year term.
Does your software product provide any resource or knowledge section for its users? If yes, what kind of material is provided to your users to help them get acquainted with your product?
Yes our platform has a knowledge base of written content that users can access and also video tutorials. The written content has been formatted so that users can easily search on a key topic and navigate to the answer they need.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We have a Service Level Agreement in place with each customer where they can escalate issues based on four levels of severity. For example, for a small request that has a minimal business impact, we have a ticketing system where customers can raise an issue and a member of our team will contact them within 40 hours. On the other side of the scale, if the issue is mission-critical from a business impact perspective, our technical team will respond to the customer within 4 hours and have a dedicated team member working through the issue with that company daily, for as long as it takes to find a resolution.
What has been the revenue for your product for 2021?
Where do you see your product in the next 10 years?
Our vision is to see OneBill adopted in other industries where we currently don’t have a strong presence but have the need for our expertise in consumption-based billing. These include industries such as Membership, Retail, and Lease Management. Furthermore, in considering our long-term innovation pipeline, we would also like to assess how emerging technologies such as Blockchain and Biometrics could play a role in enhancing our solution.
