Manage Customers and Help Them Succeed
The IoT is not only changing the way we work; it’s also changing the way your customers want to consume your offerings – flexible and tailored to their needs. Subscription or usage-based monetization models are becoming more important. In order to succeed, you’ll want to better understand your customers and know what they are entitled to use versus what they are actually using. The Flexera IoT Monetization platform enables you to truly understand the customer lifecycle and to act accordingly. Benefit from actionable insight based on accurate entitlement and consumption data – for your SaaS, on-premises or embedded applications.
Differentiate Through Premium Features
"One size fits all" does not work anymore. IoT solutions are made of various components and features. Enabling and disabling features on demand and monetizing premium features separately are inevitable parts of any IoT offering.
The Flexera IoT Monetization platform enables you to implement flexible product packaging and premium feature options. You will also be able to track usage and find out what features are being used on which platform and how much. Based on that data, you can determine customer value and make strategic decisions about future development. No need to guess what’s the killer feature anymore – you’ll know it.
Manage the IoT Ecosystem
No-one is doing IoT alone. Every IoT solution combines multiple components and involves a longer supply chain of manufacturers and software producers that contribute to a complete solution. The Flexera IoT Monetization platform enables you to connect to your customers, supply them with updates and manage all licensing, entitlement management and analytics processes within your ecosystem.
