Zuora integrates Microsoft products to deliver agile solutions to customers


Cloud-based subscription management Zuora will integrate Microsoft products to its platform as part of a multi-tiered agreement with the tech giant.

Zuora says these new integrated solutions from Microsoft will deliver finance teams more agility, power enhanced subscription analytics, and make it easier to deploy and adopt technology.

Zuora is collaborating with Microsoft to:

Run applications on Microsoft Azure for enterprise flexibility and scale.
By deploying new customer workloads on to Azure, Zuora will be able to quickly and securely adapt its workflows to the changing business landscape and enterprise customer needs.

Connect Zuora Revenue with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance for agile, enterprise revenue recognition.
Integrating Zuora Revenue with a bi-directional connection to Dynamics 365 Finance will allow joint customers to easily close deals for even the most complex business models, and enhance overall customer experience.

Embed Microsoft Power BI Reports into Zuora applications to generate new insights into the subscriber experience.
Zuora Billing, Revenue and Collect will embed Power BI’s interactive reports and visualisations to give customers a single view of their subscription, collections, and revenue recognition processes.

With this insight from Power BI, Zuora customers will be able to optimise the subscriber experiences they’re delivering to drive recurring revenue growth in the Subscription Economy.

“Zuora customers work on a massive scale but need to deliver top-quality customized experiences to each individual subscriber,” comments Zuora chief product and engineering officer Sri Srinivasan.

“These new integrations between Zuora Revenue and Microsoft will deliver incredible agility into the tools that finance professionals use globally, offer new insights into subscription and revenue recognition analytics, and provide cloud infrastructure that scales to support the world's largest companies,” he adds.

Zuora Revenue streamlines the revenue recognition process and enables businesses to customise the software to their individual business and reporting requirements.

Integrating Zuora Revenue with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance will give Microsoft customers access to the enterprise revenue recognition application—fully integrated with the Microsoft tools they use every day.

“Zuora supports the ever-increasing demands on automating revenue recognition and adhering to standards such as ASC 606,” explains Microsoft general manager business applications group Toby Bowers. “This integration will rely on the flexibility of the cloud and our solutions like Microsoft Azure, Power BI, and Dynamics 365 provide the intelligence and agility for our customers looking to solve these complex revenue challenges.”

Zuora will continue to evolve its offerings and expand its technical and business relationship with Microsoft into subscription management.

Zuora Billing, Revenue and Collect will embed Power BI’s interactive reports and visualizations in the next few months. The additional integrations of Zuora with Microsoft are planned to be available for Zuora’s early adopter program in early 2022.
