I think that some steps in several procedures could be automated. The overall experience with Zuora is good. It can be linked with other CSM platform and this helps a lot the customer support in providing a efficient and quick reply and issue solution to customer. A more intuitive layout may help in following all the necessary procedures in a quicker manner.

I feel like Zuora does exactly what it was created to do, at least for my organization. We mainly use Zuora as an invoice management system, and it's not a hard system to use to do that. The only reason I can't give a higher usability score is because of the amount of button presses it takes to perform a simple task.

I had 20+ years of accounting experience before taking on the revenue role. I had several things to [learn] but was able to easily master the software in a matter of weeks. Zuora is our preferred billing platform that we currently use - very efficient and much more automated than our other platform/process.

The business of Subscription Management, including taking on Financial functions, is complex by nature. Zuora has done a great job of logically separating data and functions into easy to understand components, and that logical organization flows into the usability of the system.

You're basically able to do what you need, but sometimes it seems as though the interface was designed by a space alien from a different galaxy. A space alien who is, on its home planet, an expert at interface design.

With power comes complexity. Zuora Insights is the nuclear weapon of software sales, but like anything that powerful, it has a bit of a learning curve. Once you get used to the interface and terminology, it becomes second nature.
