In business finance, achieving operational efficiency is akin to striking gold. Repsly, a Boston-based retail execution platform that powers field teams in over 80 countries worldwide has done just that by integrating Chargebee’s RevRec into its financial processes. We sat down and talked to Roza Anthony, the controller at Repsly, who shared her transformational experience that sheds light on the power of the right tools in streamlining business operations.

From revenue recognition complexity to clarity

Before the switch to Chargebee, Repsly grappled with the challenges of using multiple systems for revenue recognition. The process was cumbersome and fraught with manual tasks, making the monthly closure of books a daunting task. The pivotal moment came when Repsly embraced Chargebee’s all-in-one system, which promised—and delivered—a smoother, faster, and more efficient method of managing revenue recognition.

The pain points

The need for change was driven by Recurly’s inadequacies, which, despite claims, fell short of delivering a robust revenue recognition solution. The addition of another layer to compensate for this shortfall did little to alleviate the complexity. This frustration led Repsly to seek out Chargebee, a decision that would significantly streamline their financial operations.

A new era of efficiency

Chargebee’s billing system has been a game-changer for Repsly, offering unprecedented flexibility in scheduling invoices and subscription changes. This has enabled Repsly to align its cash flow more accurately with customer actions, a previously unattainable advantage. The capability to retroactively adjust subscriptions ensures that financial transactions mirror customer usage, enhancing both accuracy and satisfaction.

Quantifiable revenue recognition gains

Switching to Chargebee decreased the time Repsly spent on revenue recognition by 50 percent. What once took three to four days a month now takes a mere two days, effectively halving the time spent on revenue recognition. This significant reduction in time and effort underscores Chargebee’s efficiency and intuitiveness. Repsly looks forward to even greater improvements with the upcoming Product Catalog 2.0.

Loving the change

Repsly’s enthusiasm for Chargebee is palpable. The system’s ease of use, combined with the flexibility to tailor it to Repsly’s specific needs, has made It an invaluable asset. The system’s intuitive nature means less time fighting with technology and more time focusing on what matters most—growing the business.

Defining efficient growth

For Repsly, efficient growth means being able to quickly and easily support customer needs. Chargebee plays a crucial role, enabling the company to adapt swiftly and effectively to new demands. This agility is essential in today’s fast-paced market, where responsiveness can set a company apart from its competitors.
