Orb

Power Orb’s scalable usage-based billing with a streaming Segment integration.

  • Define value metrics on top of flexible events—Stream raw usage events to Orb as they happen, tagging them with labels relevant to billing. Using our extensible query engine, define any metric that makes sense for your business.

  • Encode flexible usage-based pricing models—Drive revenue growth with pricing levers like volume discounts, prepaid credits, and adjustable minimum commitments. 

  • Calculate real-time invoices and trends—Billing doesn’t need to be a one-time data pull. Monitor real-time account patterns and set anomaly alerts. 

  • Orchestrate price changes and contract renewals—Automate updates to your monetization. Schedule future price changes for customer cohorts with date-based and balance-based triggers.

  • Experiment with pricing—Test out alternate revenue strategies and model price change scenarios. Use our back-testing capabilities to compare scenarios against historical usage data.

Orb

Orb offers a highly scalable, accurate usage based billing platform for managing dynamic monetization schemes that rely on maintaining and calculating customer usage. Orb supports flexible metrics for billing based on usage events of any format, and automatically handles invoicing, tax, and payments. Orb allows you to experiment with new pricing models and schedule price and contract changes for customer cohorts. In Orb’s dashboard, you can see real-time views of usage and stay ahead of the curve on revenue forecasting and financial planning.

Define a billable metric over event properties. In addition to its native UI toolset, Orb uniquely supports SQL-based metrics. These metrics will be used to compute billable totals for your customers.

Using the billable metrics you’ve created, define a pricing plan based on different usage-based models as well as fixed fees, discounts, trial periods, and contract ramps.

Orb

Orb’s segment integration sends events directly to Orb and automatically attributes usage events to customers with active subscriptions. Use the configuration in Segment to map properties, automatically transforming them to fit Orb’s event schema. Leveraging Segment’s historical replay minimizes integration work with Orb to a few clicks and allows you to capture customer usage immediately. Segment’s ongoing integration with Orb will ensure that your customers are billed accurately every month without having to worry about building in-house reporting infrastructure.
