Z4P

Especially for publishers

PossibilIT offers publishers all related subscription processes as a solution. This is based on a combination of two world-leading SaaS services: Salesforce CRM and Zuora. This standard combination of ‘Zuora + Salesforce’ is successfully implemented by many companies to manage their subscriptions. Still, this lacks the full support of the functionality required for a publisher. To address this functionality gap, PossibilIT has developed a package called Zuora for Publishers (Z4P), which contains several modules.

We have implemented Subscription Management for the following companies.

A solution with different systems

The total solution can be integrated with the following systems:

External integrations
  • The software can be integrated with external web shops by means of incoming API calls.
  • By importing a CSV file, external marketing agencies can also integrate the system.
  • The data warehouse can be used for reporting and analysis.
Other integrations
  • Party-specific CSV export can be used to integrate with multiple fulfillment parties.
  • This solution also works with payment providers, via inbound/outbound API calls (PSP = Adyen)
  • Integration with the bank (Bank = ING) is possible via incoming/outgoing SEPA files.
  • This is also possible with Gigya, by using a standard Salesforce connector.
Cloud services

In addition, we also configure 2 additional cloud services to implement the necessary interfaces:

  • Payment Gateway: interfacing between Zuora and PSP/Banko with Salesforce Z4P for payment registration and payment matching.
  • Pentaho ETL: Deploy all bulk interfaces from Salesforce/Zuora to other systems.

With this, bundles with magazine titles can be managed. Second, it ensures a short time-to-market for campaign products, including bonuses and/or discounts. Finally. basis management can be done for stock products.

3. Order management (of new subscriptions and one-off products).

With order management orders can be imported from API. Larger orders from CSV can also be imported. Orders can be created manually from Salesforce UI. This module is also excellent for distributing one-off products, premiums and welcome/farewell letters.
