IT Services Major Opens New Global Zuora Center of Excellence, Signs Up As Silver Sponsor at “Subscribed 2016” Conference

Sunnyvale - April 5, 2016 - Estuate, a leading global IT services provider, announced today that it delivered its 100th successful implementation of Zuora, Inc.’s SaaS service. It is now one of the leading implementation partners of Zuora® worldwide, and has developed a wide range of add-ons and integrations that extend the value proposition of the Zuora service for companies of every size - from small businesses to large, global enterprises.

Estuate has formed a new Zuora Center of Excellence featuring certified consultants and a revolutionary new global delivery model that promises to speed up implementations and deliver unbeatable value at an extremely low Total Cost of Ownership. The new Zuora Center of Excellence was launched in the first quarter of 2016.

"Estuate continues to blaze new trails with Zuora in the Subscription Economy®,” said Robert Hildenbrand, Zuora SVP of Global Services. "We are highly impressed by Estuate’s razor-sharp focus on delivering reliable results to our customers. They have developed an impressive set of add-on products that extend the value of the Zuora service and shorten the time-to-value for our customers, a win-win-win for all. Their new Zuora Center of Excellence takes this commitment to the next level, and our customers will benefit from the efficiencies of the Global Delivery model and accelerating pace of innovation from there.”

Estuate’s value-added solutions include:

  • Custom web portals: Prepackaged web storefronts with integrated billing functionality that can be rapidly deployed across multiple platforms.
  • PayPal integration: Enables PayPal as a payment option for the customer shopping cart, making it easier for customers, reducing shopping cart abandonment, and enabling customized marketing campaigns.
  • Single sign-on (SSO) integration: A closely-knit SSO solution with the Zuora storefront that integrates with the existing identity provider (IdP) solutions (OKTA or similar) and provides seamless authentication with other web applications.
  • Dashboards: Readymade and customizable dashboards that provide a unified view of data across Salesforce and Zuora.
  • PCI-compliant credit card data migration: Enables PCI-compliant credit card data migrations from legacy billing systems to Zuora.
  • DocuSign integration: Out-of-the-box integration with DocuSign that enables the sales representatives to send out a quote to the customer and receive an electronically signed document online.
  • Landing page customization: Enables vendors to quickly build pages to capture credit card information or ACH information on a secure webpage hosted on the customer portal, eliminating the need for manual data capture over phone or email.
  • ACH payments in Z-Quotes: An out-of-the-box option for sales representatives to capture the customer’s credit card information while creating quotes though Hosted Payment Pages (HPM).
  • Reseller portal: Enables resellers to sell vendor solutions on a subscription model through a vendor-controlled portal.
  • Quote rules engine plugin: Enables calculation of software license as a percentage of total charges and add-ons.
  • Hybris integration: Enables vendors using the Hybris e-commerce platform to build rich subscription pricing functionality.

“This is yet another instance of extraordinary results from a team committed to extreme service,” said Prakash Balebail, Founder and CEO. “We have gone from zero to 100 implementations in less than two years, making us Zuora’s number one implementation partner worldwide. This is a result of our investment into building our Zuora expertise to create an unprecedented ecosystem of value-added solutions, and a focus on delivering real solutions to vexing business problems. We will not stop here - we continue to expand our portfolio of solutions, and I am looking forward to great things from this team.”
