Monitor Business Health And Performance

Subscription metrics are incredibly hard to get when your customer data is buried everywhere. Zuora provides key subscription metrics right out of the box and allows you to drill into the underlying subscriber behavior driving key outcomes such as churn. Zuora is the only solution that combines your financial data with your subscriber behavior data. With Zuora’s analytics capabilities, you can:

  • Intuitively customize reports
  • Save, schedule, and share reports
  • Monitor the health of individual subscribers
  • Group subscribers by common traits and behaviors

"When we were looking to implement Zuora, the main goal that we needed to solve for early on was scalability, to be able to support tremendous growth in a short period of time."
