Explo, a leading provider of customer-facing analytics for various platforms, has been leveraging Octane for the past two years. In this case study, we sit down with Jacob Katz, Finance and Operations Associate at Explo, to gain insight into their experience with Octane and how it has positively impacted their business operations.
Explo had entirely manual processes for managing its billing.
It was a multi stakeholders process that included getting usage from product teams, working out invoice schedule with finance team and chasing down payments.
- Manual Billing Processes: Explo had been manually handling subscription billing, from customer creation to invoicing. This process was time-consuming and prone to errors.
- Lack of Automation: Without an automated system, the team had to dedicate significant time to set up and manage customer accounts, leading to delays in getting paid.
- Limited Visibility: The absence of robust analytics tools made it difficult for Explo to gain insights into their revenue data and usage patterns, hindering their decision-making process.
