Integration is Key for Successful Recurring Revenue Management, Says Aria e-Paper

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

With more industries expanding their business models to include recurring revenue options, top-level managers that want to create or keep a competitive advantage are faced with logistical system integration questions and concerns that might slow down or prevent a smooth transition to supporting these new revenue streams. They realize that recurring revenue businesses built on subscriptions, tiered, freemium or pay-as-you-go models demand capabilities that their existing systems may not have been designed to accommodate. Recurring revenue management expert Aria Systems offers strategic advice on how to get the most benefit from existing systems when buying and integrating a recurring revenue solution in its latest e-paper, “Recurring Revenue: Why Integrating with Existing Systems is Key to Success.” This valuable e-paper is available free of charge to interested businesses at Aria’s website.

“Recurring revenue is transforming markets everywhere,” said Jon Gettinger, senior vice president of marketing at Aria Systems. “This transformation sets up the opportunity to disrupt a marketplace. However, existing business systems may not always be fully prepared to handle this transformation.”

Gettinger said Aria’s latest e-paper covers some of the challenges to overcome in adding a recurring revenue management system to business systems already in place. In addition, it presents some of the additional functionality new recurring revenue businesses will need.

“It’s important to leverage existing systems to lessen the disruptions to overall business operations,” Gettinger observed. “Managers must move forward without interrupting established systems such as finance and accounting that have made the business successful in the first place. In many instances, the business is still paying for these systems, so total cost-of-ownership is an important consideration when buying a recurring revenue management solution.”

The e-paper also provides a list of twelve questions that should be examined before making a final decision on a recurring revenue management solution. Once the questions have been considered, the manager will have a good understanding of the correct recurring revenue management system to purchase.

“If you put in the right system, you can disrupt your market without disrupting your business,” Gettinger observed. “And that is what recurring revenue is all about.”

To better understand the system considerations required when adding a recurring revenue option to your business, consider downloading the newly released e-paper, “Recurring Revenue: Why Integrating with Existing Systems is Key to Success.”

Author Reveals Thoughts through Book of Personal Commentaries

gI_101483_John%20Hester
Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) October 22, 2014

Commentator and author John Hester gives his say to issues that plagued and continue to plague the world as he unveils “A Collection of (Mostly) Rather Eccentric Commentaries and The Night the Tet Offensive Began” (published by Xlibris).

War in the Middle East and in Europe; the fight against deadly viruses (Ebola and the likes); and economic struggles due to inflation are just some of the issues that the world faces today. And in almost all of them, the US is involved in one way or another. How much strain do they cause the nation? Hester offers his unique opinions and perspective on the various matters, may it be political, social or economical, within this thought-provoking text.

In its entirety, this notable read houses a collection of some of the commentaries Hester wrote in his editorial-page column over his 45-year career. Most of his commentaries were about local matters of specific interest to the community in which the newspaper was located, but all of these are of a more universal scope — allowing readers from all over the world to relate.

About the Author

John Hester was raised in the small central Florida town of Inverness. He graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa in 1965, with a degree in physical education. After teaching school for one year, he served in the U.S. Army for two years, from September 1966 to September 1968. He took basic training at Fort Benning, Ga., was then stationed for 10 months at Hunter Liggett Military Reservation in California and finally served 11 months in Vietnam — the first five months as a clerk-typist at 18th Engineer Brigade Headquarters in Dong Ba Thin, next to Cam Rahn Bay, and the second six months as an information specialist at 937th Combat Engineer Group Headquarters in Pleiku in the Central Highlands. During his time in the Army, he had the Forrest Gump-like experience of witnessing firsthand two major events of the turbulent 1960s: he visited San Francisco several times during the summer of 1967, which subsequently became known as “the Summer of Love,” and he was in Vietnam the night in January 1968 when the enemy’s Tet Offensive began. After being discharged from the Army, he spent a year writing a novel for which he could not find a publisher and then embarked on what was to be a 45-year career as a reporter/photographer/editor for small weekly newspapers.

Barbara Taylor Bradfords Bestselling Romance Novel A Woman of Substance Now in eBook

gI_136878_A-Woman-of-Substance-224x300
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

A Woman of Substance, Barbara Taylor Bradford’s debut novel, quickly became not just a New York Times bestseller, but one of the top ten bestselling novels ever written with over 30 million copies sold. In a deal brokered by her agent Jonathan Lloyd of Curtis Brown UK, and with the assistance of Associate Publisher Roger Cooper, RosettaBooks published eBook editions of eight Barbara Taylor Bradford novels, led by A Woman of Substance.

“I am delighted my North American fans have the opportunity to read A Woman of Substance in eBook format, and that Emma Harte’s rags-to-riches saga continues to captivate readers beyond the printed page,” said Ms. Bradford.

Novels include Hold the Dream and To Be the Best (continuations of The Harte Family Saga), Angel, The Women in His Life, Voice of the Heart, Remember and Act of Will. Secrets of Romance, Bradford’s nonfiction book which includes secrets for bringing romance into the everyday moments of your life, will be the ninth title to be distributed in March.

“Barbara Taylor Bradford has charmed and delighted millions of fans of her romantic novels for over 30 years, and we at RosettaBooks are excited by the opportunity to share these wonderful books with a broader audience through our eBook editions,” said Cooper.

In 1984, A Woman of Substance was produced as a six-hour miniseries, which was nominated for two Emmy Awards. It starred Deborah Kerr, Liam Neeson, Jenny Seagrove and Barry Bostwick. Since then, many of Bradford’s subsequent 28 books have sold more than 89 million copies in 90 different countries. Many have been dramatized, capturing more fans with her engaging narratives and compelling characters.

In 1999, Bradford became the first living female author to be featured on a postage stamp. In 2003, she was awarded a place in the Writers’ Hall of Fame of America, and in 2007, she was inducted into the Order of the British Empire.

In celebration of the season of love, RosettaBooks is treating readers to one free romance eBook every day from now through Feb.14. Three complimentary titles by Bradford include: Remember (February 12), Act of Will (February 13) and A Woman of Substance (February 14).
