- Why Lotus
Lotus provides a flexible and modular control panel on top of your existing quote-to-cash stack that allows you to integrate data from multiple systems to help you figure out the optimal pricing scheme for your products.
Lotus is self-hostable and extensible, enabling companies to build their own frontend, apps, and integrations for themselves.
How It Works
Lotus manages your billing process from metering to pricing to invoicing. This solves some of the most painful issues when building a system to handle usage-based billing, including:
Real-time visibility of accrued revenue and usage during a billable period
Easily creating complex modular pricing plans, keeping track of versions, and assigning them to customers
Handling complex behaviors like proration, discounts, and plan transitions
Evaluating the effects of past pricing changes on your bottom line, and helping you understand how to optimize your pricing strategy
🚀 Deploy Pricing & Packaging, Any Way You Want
Create and deploy pricing and packaging for your products in a way that makes sense for your business. We can handle a variety of different use cases including:
- Billing models as simple as a flat monthly fee or as complex as your metrics require
- Plans for self-serve, as well as highly customized plans for enterprise customers
- Version Control, Grandfathering, and other advanced features to make sure everyone is exactly on the plan they need to be
🔬 Monitor Your Customers
Lotus provides a powerful dashboard that allows you to monitor your customers and their usage in real time. This allows you to:
- Completely customize when, where, and how you create your customers’ subscriptions
- Manage customer access to your products. Forget about keeping track of which customer is allowed to do what, how much of their allowed usage has been consumed, and when they need to upgrade. With Lotus, you can manage all of this in one place.
- Stop overpaying for subscription management. With Lotus, you can integrate with your existing payment processor to save money on invoicing and billing.
