SAN FRANCISCO– JAN. 17, 2012 - MuleSoft, provider of the #1 integration platform for the cloud and enterprise, today announced three new cloud integration applications (iApps) for Zuora, the global leader in subscription commerce and billing. MuleSoft will offer these packaged integration solutions for Zuora customers, running on Mule iON integration platform as a service (iPaaS). These iApps will help Zuora’s customers address their most pressing integration problems, including integrating their e-commerce storefronts, tax engines, and accounting systems with the Zuora subscription commerce and billing platform.
Mule iON is a cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that helps SaaS providers and their customers address common cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-premise integration use cases. Mule iON is the easiest way for SaaS providers and systems integrators to solve integration challenges, knocking down the barriers for new customer adoption. With the battle-tested Mule integration technology at its core, Mule iON provides scalability, flexibility, visibility, and manageability that other cloud integration solutions can't.
MuleSoft is offering three packaged iApps to address the integration scenarios most commonly faced by Zuora’s customers:
- Zuora REST Store iApp - a pre-built REST service connector and pre-built common composite services (e.g., new subscription, upgrade, downgrade); integrating e-commerce websites with Zuora can now be done in days vs. weeks
- Zuora iApp for Tax - integrates Zuora with corporate tax applications, including Avalara, Billsoft, and others, dramatically streamlining the process of applying taxes in the subscription invoicing process
- Zuora iApp for Accounting- integrates Zuora with corporate accounting systems, both on-premise and in the cloud (e.g. Workday, Intacct, Netsuite, & Quickbooks Online)
“The appeal of SaaS and cloud offerings like Zuora and Intacct for CFN is that it allows us to focus on delivering high performance solutions to our customers rather than managing internal IT resources and software development,” said Brad O’Brien, COO of CFN Services. “With Mule iON, we can get the most value, in an accelerated timeframe, from both Zuora and Intacct by integrating our subscription management platform seamlessly with our existing financial systems and processes.”
“Zuora’s commerce platform connects the front-end and back-end infrastructure for subscription-based businesses. Integration with other systems, including tax engines, accounting systems, and e-commerce platforms, is a critical element for our customers’ success,” said Guillaume Vives, Vice President of Services of Zuora. “With MuleSoft’s focus on delivering turnkey iApps, not just connectors and the platform, Zuora can get its customers live in days vs. weeks, helping our customers get to market quickly.”
“Like many SaaS applications, Zuora relies on integration with other cloud and on-premise systems to support end-to-end business processes. We are pleased that they have selected Mule iON as the cloud-based integration platform to help them do so,” said Chris Purpura, general manager of Mule iON at MuleSoft.
MuleSoft delivers the world’s #1 integration platform for the cloud and enterprise. Built on the most widely used open source application infrastructure products, Mule ESB, Mule iON integration platform as a service(iPaaS), and Tcat (enterprise Tomcat server) provide an ideal combination of simplicity and power to today’s web applications. The company’s offerings boast more than 2 million downloads and over 3,200 organizations in production, including leading companies such as Walmart.com, MasterCard, Nokia, Nestlé, Honeywell and DHL, as well as 5 of the world’s top 10 banks and over 35% of the Global 500.
