build vs buy

Enterprises face the dilemma of whether to build their own app to support specific functionality without compromise, but risk a design that, over-time, may not meet their evolving needs; or buy an app to leverage best-of-breed features that have evolved across multiple scenarios and achieve results much faster, but limit important and strategic initiatives by driving business processes.

BillingPlatform is changing the way enterprises operate, allowing them to leverage the best of both worlds through an easily customizable cloud app, with powerful out-of-the-box features, that evolves with changing demands.

The Dynamic Cloud Platform

The platform is based on what’s called ‘metadata-driven architecture’. What this essentially means is that the system’s data model is describable so that it can be infinitely extended and leveraged for easy and robust configuration of business rules, workflow, reports, dashboards, rating, invoicing, APIs, Formulas and even programming.


It also means that the core platform itself can be infinitely extended so that it will never become legacy and can always take on a life of its own within your specific organization without altering the platform’s core functionality.

The benefit is that you get a system that is always new and always conforms to your way of doing business on state-of-the-art infrastructure that can leverage todays cloud ecosystem.
