A majority of SaaS businesses, especially those that are not heavily sales-driven rely on smart lead-gen tactics. It’s step zero in a long customer lifecycle from becoming a prospect to a happy recurring customer. But what are leads, if you can’t act on them contextually, by nurturing them meaningfully, and maximizing revenue?


That’s where Leadinfo comes into play. What makes Leadinfo special is that they cater to a much bigger audience, making it a very high-growth segment. Their customers range from Heineken, the popular Dutch beer brand, to Lime Technologies, Creditsafe to Exact Software, and hundreds of marketing agencies that cater to mom-and-pop stores — thanks to the rapid digitalization of businesses, especially with a pandemic in the scene.



“If you're in a growth phase, optimizing billing is crucial, along with building international payment features. My advice for startups? Bring in Chargebee from day one to save time and boost growth.”

The Challenge


Everything else worked like magic, except for their billing operations. Prior to Chargebee, the team at Leadinfo would manually handle their subscription management and recurring billing. More specifically, they would:



  1. Sign up each customer manually

  2. Send invoices manually by means of macros, spreadsheets, and PDFs

  3. Struggle with international expansion due to limited pricing experiments

  4. Spend a lot of support bandwidth on handling nitty-gritty such as pricing changes, trial management, payment follow-ups, answering customer queries around billing and invoicing, etc. 


What followed was a lot of data errors, limitations in faster growth, and a series of operational nightmares. 



The Solution


The team at Leadinfo immediately identified the need to fast-track their growth by automating the mundane — this automation included the signup process, invoicing and payments collections, and localization to aid faster global footprints. 


  1. With Chargebee’s robust APIs, Leadinfo is able to integrate its software to give customers a uniform experience and a single seamless flow. 

  2. The team at Leadinfo also iterates on pricing frequently with Chargebee’s flexible pricing and product catalog. These changes help them optimize their pricing and stay informed on customer cohorts that are performing best through Chargebee’s Subscription Analytics platform – RevenueStory.

  3. They are also integrating with PayPal along with credit card payments through Stripe, and are offering localized pricing to facilitate wider streams of revenue globally. 


Simply put, they have separated the billing from their actual application as their code base becomes more and more complex, to avoid messy fixes. This abstraction has helped them scale and grow their footprints internationally. 



The Results


With Chargebee handling their entire subscription management and billing operations, the team is now able to focus on more important metrics such as improving customer experience and growing their net retention rate, growing their Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) by offering add-ons, along with identifying newer ways to serve a global customer base. Automation has helped them grow 3x from their previous growth rate.



Post-Chargebee, they have grown 200% with hundreds of new SMB and enterprise customers signing up per month. They improved their ARPU by 25% during this period as they moved upmarket. The team is constantly finding new ways to grow as they continue to discover more capabilities from Chargebee to facilitate that growth.

I appreciate how easy it is to update prices with Chargebee. Previously, with hardcoded pricing, it was cumbersome to update prices and wait for a release, only to repeat it a week later. However, Chargebee allows us to quickly modify prices and see the results in real time.
