Aria Systems Invites Condé Nast to Discuss Recurring Revenue Models

‘With Aria they can test & play with as many pricing models as they choose to make their recurring revenue business profitable’

Recurring Revenue expert Aria Systems commends Condé Nast's decision to launch a new division for online shopping and kindly invites the publisher of the world's top magazines to a conversation about all the possible recurring revenue models they could employ to ensure success. Recent news reports said the publisher's U.S. and international units would start up the London-based division in January 2014.

Those same news reports reported the publisher wants to tap into the exploding enthusiasm for online shopping globally.

"We welcome Condé Nast to the brave new world of online retailing, the fastest growing sector of recurring revenue," said Tom Dibble, President and CEO at Aria Systems. "We invite them to talk to us about how to get to market quickly and find the model that will work best for their business."

"There is often uncertainty in picking the right system to effectively enable their new recurring revenue ventures. Many companies quickly overcome their uncertainty resulting in great financial success, including our long list of brand name clients," Dibble added.

The privately-held publisher is already getting well acquainted with the world of online retailing.

So far in 2013, Condé Nast has made four sizable investments in ecommerce-centered websites, including a $20 million investment in Paris-based luxury e-commerce website Vestiaire Collective and a $20 million investment in high-end fashion retailer Farfetch.com. The company's German division purchased a 26 percent stake in Monoqi, a website for selling contemporary furniture and interior design, as well as increasing its to 46 percent its position in RenéSim, an online purveyor of luxury jewelry.

"Because the new division is still in the formative stages, with many possible directions to take, Condé Nast should consider cloud-based third-party services that allow testing of various models to bring more dollars to the top line as well as bottom line," added Dibble.

Aria's list of clients includes numerous Fortune 500 companies with highly visible brand names as Pitney Bowes, AAA NCNU, Experian, Red Hat, Ingersoll Rand, EMC, VMware, and HootSuite to name a few.

"We're experienced with helping big enterprises get to market quickly. With Aria they can test and play with as many pricing models as they choose so that they can make their recurring revenue business profitable as soon as possible," said Dibble.
