Rev Your Engines: NetSuite's Advanced Revenue Management Solution

Two of the most common discussions in business today are the new ASC 606 Revenue Recognition standard and the desire to move to (or include) subscriptions as part of any monetization strategy.  The key to a successful business system supporting both of these needs is the acknowledgement that they are, in reality, part of a single process.  NetSuite’s Subscription Billing and Advanced Revenue Management solutions were each built to be world class in their own right – but they were actually built from the ground up, in unison, designed to work seamlessly together. Come hear about the capabilities of these solutions, and see how subscriptions and revenue management were meant to be more then just integrated, they need to be built together to act as one.
