Chargebee
Well-suited:
  • In a B2B set up - Post achieving some scale and having outgrown Google Sheets/ Excels. Won't add much value if you are dealing with fewer than 400-500 invoices a year.
  • We haven't explored their B2C subscription management side - but that is one of the key strengths of the platform.

Oracle Customer Care and Billing is well suited for smaller to mid size companies. I don't believe that it is structured in a way, currently, that is easy to use for larger utilities. For smaller to mid size utilities, with less data and customers, Oracle Customer Care and Billing will perform quicker and appear less cluttered. The utility I work at serves 600k+ customers.

Cons
Chargebee
  • It wasn't allowing us to add a one time purchase without making it an ongoing subscription with only one payment. They may have fixed it very recently but that was a big pain from a reporting perspective (it was including one time purchasers as subscribers)
  • Email automation is not very robust. Difficult to customize triggers by subscription, you have to send the same message to all subscribers for a specific action
  • Wish it had a way to write off and cancel the subscription of customers who haven't updated their cc info. That can be a long painful and very manual process. And if that feature is available somewhere they don't do a good job of making that clear.

  • As much as I believe CCB is a user-friendly interface, I also believe it has room to be even simpler and easier to use and navigate.

Usability
Chargebee
It's very easy to use once you know what you're doing. I found it very straight forward once I got the hang of things and was able to create plans easily for my business. I was also able to just charge my clients right away easily. Refunding was also easy when needed.

Previously, my company was on an aging mainframe system. The cost and effort to move to Oracle Customer Care and Billing, as well as integrate with the Oracle Utility MDM and MWM modules, was done out of necessity but also larger external acceptance and innovation. By this, I mean that Oracle's product line was growing quicker with newer features than the competitor we weighed (SAP).

Return on Investment
Chargebee
  • It was a step in the right direction compared to ReCharge
  • It had negative impacts on our revenue before we had our developers put some work into improving its capabilities with our website and software
  • Now, we are seeing some positive results (after some costly updating from our end)
