Multiple Entities

Hi

 

We are planning to implement multi entity. Have couple of questions with the new feature.  

 

 

With new zuora multi entity feature can we share the accounts / payment methods/ contacts data between the entities?

Also Is there a way to use seperate payment gateway by entity? For new sales we can pass the gateway info, but the problem is for renewals (payment runs).

How do we recognize therevenue by entity. 

 

Please advise. Thank you.

 

Thanks,

Uday

Re: Multiple Entities

Hello,

 

Here is the article that lists how multi-entity works. 

 https://knowledgecenter.zuora.com/BB_Introducing_Z_Business/Multi-entity/A_Overview_of_Multi-entity

 

This keeps all business operations separate, including revenue, however, you will be able share products and accounting periods across entities. 

 

Here is the article on sharing products and accounting periods across entities:

Please contact support if you would like to have this feature enabled on your tenant.

 

Thank you,

Monique

Re: Multiple Entities

Hi Uday,

 

To your first question, currently we only support object sharing of product catalog and accounting periods.

 

To your second question, payment runs are naturally separated by entity. You can setup different gateways in each entity and run the payment run separatelly.

 

To your third question, revenue recognition is also naturally separated by entity, so when you log in into an entity, you will only see the revenue recognized in that specific entity.

 

Thanks,

Re: Multiple Entities

Thanks Bin. Is there plan to extend the object sharing to Accounts, Contact and Payment methods? If not that will add so much of duplicate data.

Re: Multiple Entities

Hi Uday

 

I do understand your concern about adding duplicate data. We do have that enhancements in our roadmap. However, I am not quite sure about the detail plan yet. Your best bet would be to suggest these features in the subscription management ideas forum here: http://community.zuora.com/t5/Subscription-Management-Ideas/idb-p/Subscription_Management_Ideas. You can reference this post in your idea. And our product manager would connect with you from there.

 

Thanks,

Bin
