ZUORA'S LIMITED AVAILABILITY PROGRAM HITS THE COMMUNITY.jpg

 

Our Limited Availability Program (L.A. Program) is a great way for Zuora to test our new features with real customers in their real environments before it’s released to the masses. Not only does it help us make Zuora great, but it also gives an exclusive group of customers a unique opportunity to help improve a product that they use day-to-day, for a community of equally-invested users.

 

Quality is the primary objective of our L.A. Program, but we also focus on the following:

  • User Experience Improvement.  We want to make sure that everything performs as expected.
  • Product Readiness. Everyone uses Zuora differently so testing our product on highly targeted users (e.g. Reporting or CPQ) helps us determine if Zuora meets their requirements.
  • Bug Identification. By providing real-world usage in different scenarios, our product team is able to discover bugs that they wouldn’t have been able to discover on their own.
  • Feedback Collection. Any usability challenges user’s face will be reviewed and analyzed by the product team.

I have subscribed to the Weekly Billing LA program. My reason for wanting to participate, is so that Invoca can offer more to our customers and be the best that we can be. We've had customers ask about weekly billing and would like to implement this as soon as possible. We love Zuora and would like to utilize it as best as we can.

We'd like access to the MRR Trend Report and MRR Change Reports. We've been working with Zuora for about year to get the functionality these reports provide and just found out about them last week. It would greatly improve our operating effeciency.

@Benno - you can send a request to support@zuora.com to have those two reports enabled, and our team should be able to turn it on for you pretty quickly.

We would like to part of this program. We currently are in dire need of the ability to close accounting periods and reverse IIAs within those closed periods. We requested this feature and were told it was turned on, only to find out later, it was only to adjust in current accounting periods (a feature we already had).
