Bill and recognize revenue however you want natively in NetSuite.
ZoneBilling is a native SuiteApp, built for NetSuite meaning that all of ZoneBilling's functionality rests within the NetSuite platform and is operated directly out of your NetSuite interface. Bussinesses can use our powerful API Wrapper as part of ZoneBilling's Integrate features to connect to 3rd party applications, such as CRM, CPQ, and tax software like Avalara. Because ZoneBilling is built natively in NetSuite ERP, businesses see savings in time and total cost of ownership as the need to maintain multiple sets of data, systems, internal resources, and processes are eliminated.
With ZoneBilling, businesses are able to manage everything from simple, fixed recurring subscriptions to complex contracts with multiple billing scenarios, such as usage-based licenses, services fees, inventory, price tiering, and more. Businesses move to ZoneBilling because they know that their relationship with customers is always evovling and so will the way they bill, meaning flexible solutions inside an ERP provide the scalability needed for growth without sacrificing the functionality for innovation.
Many businesses manage revenue and billing separately given the complexity of requirements at both ends of the lead-to-revenue process. ZoneBilling allows you to bring both simple and complex billing and revenue directly into NetSuite by taking advantage of ZoneBilling's innovative architecture and NetSuite's powerful Advanced Revenue Management (ARM) functionality. Together, you have the ability to automate everything from order to ledger without losing any visibility or risking compliance.

Billing and revenue software you won’t grow out of
It’s cool. We’re skeptical, too.
Can it really handle our billing and revenue? We’re pretty damn unique.
How am I supposed to find time to use another system when we can just use Excel?
What if some automation error comes back to bite us down the road?
If you can dream it,
you can bill it
How does ZoneBilling work?
Create your subscription
Each Subscription is configured by adding a variety of Subscription Items to match the elements of your contracts, whether a recurring usage-based license, a single-time implementation fee, or hardware rentals.
You can deeply customize your contracts at the Subscription, Subscription Item, or even Charge-level for maximum control, giving you almost limitless options to grow your business. Plus, template common subscriptions or contracts to make billing new customers a breeze.
Use custom data for dynamic rating
We do this by using custom records to capture critical customer data points you'd like to use in your pricing model. Our powerful API Wrapper allows you to pull this data in and mediate it automatically.
Then, leveraging the power of Saved Searches we can query those records and perform additional formulaic calculations on the data to process it for Invoicing. We call these Rate Plan Search Maps.
Build your invoice and bill customers
Taxes can be calculated leveraging native SuiteTax capabilities or through SuiteApp partners such as Avalara. Users can then easily navigate between the contract or subscription and the invoice for checks and balances, all completely in NetSuite.
ZoneBilling also utilizes features like Billing Profiles to determine if any unique delivery requirements should be applied during the invoicing process, like consolidating fees across multiple accounts onto a single invoice record or breaking up fees from a contract across multiple bill-to entities.
Automatically apply adjustments and renew
To do so, you can leverage your CRM/CPQ to send renewal contracts into NetSuite or let NetSuite auto-renew contracts for you. ZoneBilling supports evergreen, extensions, new contract lines, and even entirely new subscriptions.
If needed, create renewal templates to schedule uplifts, change terms, or (de)escalations in quantity, price, discounts, or usage rate. And with our custom integration with the Bureau of Labor, you can store CPI rates within NetSuite.

How does ZoneBilling connect to NetSuite?
ZoneBilling is a Native NetSuite SuiteApp, and this means ZoneBilling is entirely inside the walls of NetSuite. There is no integration or third-party system. Having an all-in-one solution allows you to eliminate the added costs and chaos involved with a multi-platform approach, eliminating reconciliations between billing and ERP systems.
How Does ZoneBilling Access Usage Information Managed in Proprietary Software?
Does your consumption or usage activity live in a system outside of NetSuite? No problem. An integration can set up your proprietary system to send usage data to NetSuite, giving ZoneBilling seamless access to that information. This data transfer can happen in one of three ways: ZoneBilling API Wrapper, CSV upload, and manual entry.
Can ZoneBilling Handle Usage-Based Billing?
Do you only think of fixed recurring billing when someone mentions subscription billing solutions? You’re not alone. Although fixed recurring subscription billing—think Netflix—has gained popularity (for a good reason, but that’s for another post), SaaS subscription companies offer different subscription products and services, including usage-based subscription billing.
Does ZoneBilling handle different billing cadences such as monthly, quarterly, and annually?
Any way you can bill, Zone can, too. Complex scheduling requirements? No problem. ZoneBilling’s native functionality is flexible, handling multiple billing cadences, including monthly, quarterly, and annually based on your calendar or anniversary.
