Rainmaker Announces Availability of ViewCentral 7.0 SaaS e-Commerce Solution for Selling and Managing Customer Education Revenue
CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Rainmaker Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:RMKR), a leading global provider of ecommerce solutions and telesales services that drive more revenue for clients and their channel partners, today announced the general availability of its next generation ViewCentral 7.0 SaaS e-commerce solution for selling and managing customer education revenue.
Rainmaker's on-demand ViewCentral solution helps companies maximize the revenue and profits from the sale of paid customer education programs. ViewCentral automates the online sales, marketing and administration of classes, allowing companies to sell more classes and e-learning courses while minimizing administrative costs.
Among the enhancements in the 7.0 release are two industry leading modules designed to help clients drive more revenue from their customer education programs. The new Subscription Management (aka Library Card) module allows companies to create packaged all-you-can-learn subscriptions. This is especially appealing to those clients seeking to grow their e-learning revenue. Clients can grow revenue while reducing their delivery costs by switching more of their customers to online classes.
The second key module is a real-time dashboard that compares a company's key metrics to industry averages. This enables clients to compare their training sales metrics with industry trends, helping them focus their training e-commerce efforts on activities that provide maximum ROI. For instance, a company would be able to see if their percentage of online training is above or below industry averages. And how their class fill rates compare. Identifying how you are doing compared to industry trends can provide key insights of areas of opportunity for additional revenue growth. These features are unique in the industry and will help to further extend Rainmaker's lead in the external LMS and e-commerce for customer education marketplace.
Rainmaker's CEO Michael Silton said, "Driving more profits from paid customer education is a key goal for today's leading companies. And these companies' customers expect to both buy and receive their training online. ViewCentral 7.0's new modules for education subscriptions and for industry comparison dashboards continue our industry leadership of providing unique capabilities to help companies grow their revenue online."
