What is Revenue Management Software?

A typical revenue management system is a piece of software that helps SaaS brands manage subscriptions, optimize their pricing, and forecast their revenue. In short, the goal is to streamline revenue-related processes while maximizing profitability.

Revenue management software usually comes with several features, including revenue recognition—a particular accountancy pain for SaaS brands—pricing optimization, and analytics. Some will provide a comprehensive offering—others will focus on subscription billing, and others on accounting practices.

It’s incredibly powerful, but it’s also pretty complex—which is why I recommend only enterprise businesses check it out.

Why I picked NetSuite: If you can handle the platform’s complexity, this may be the only software you end up using to manage accounting and revenue operations in your business. It provides a complete view of your accounts, helps you automatically recognize revenue, and forecast your future financials. For me, the inclusion of ecommerce and subscription billing functionality to help increase revenue was a major plus.

Features include a full suite of accounting tools, global business management features to handle multiple currencies, a CRM, and specialized payment management features like a dunning system to reduce involuntary churn and chargeback automation. There’s even some pretty detailed reporting functionality.

Subskribe is a quote-to-revenue platform for SaaS businesses. It’s an all-in-one solution for SaaS sales and revenue teams, letting them create custom quotes, go live with custom billing, and then recognize revenue.

Why I picked Subskribe: It’s a great tool for enterprise sales teams looking to go from quote to billing as quickly as possible. The tool’s CPQ feature is particularly powerful. Reps can create complex, multi-year quotes that improve conversion rates, automate their approval workflows, and sync everything with Salesforce and HubSpot.

Features also include a subscription billing management tool. It automatically reconciles payments and recognizes revenue. Multiple billing methods are available and you can even use reseller functionality to grow revenue further. I especially appreciated the automated tax calculations to make sure you remain compliant.

Its suite of applications includes accounting, supply chain management, human resources, project management, and more. But it’s forecasting where the platform really stands out.

Certinia offers a dedicated solution that integrates your CRM, accounting and revenue recognition operations in one place. You can see recognized and deferred revenue at a glance in the tool’s dashboard, and you can even forecast revenue from individual products as well as revenue‌.

Features: The platform consolidates data from multiple sources to automate several accounting processes, including revenue recognition. And the detailed audit trail really stood out as a great addition.

Zuora is a subscription management platform. It’s product offering is aimed at any business model, but it’s a particularly effective solution for SaaS companies looking to grow their subscription-based business through custom pricing offerings.

Why I picked Zuora: Zephyr is Zuora’s subscription experience platform that lets SaaS brands create customized subscription experiences for their clients. If you’ve ever wanted to personalize your customer experience, this is how I recommend you do it. Zephyr lets you create unique messaging for each customer, enrich interactions with first-party data, and, ultimately, extract as much revenue as possible.

Features include a billing solution to help you monitor and manage subscriptions, a revenue recognition tool, CPQ capabilities, and the ability to add multiple different revenue streams to your product. I love that it is a no-code solution, which means it’s easy for anyone on your team to build and manage subscription workflows.

Maxio is a comprehensive financial operations tool that caters to multiple departments (sales, marketing, finance, etc.) as well as different types of businesses (product-led SaaS and sales-led teams).

Why I picked Maxio: The tool boasts a fairly comprehensive offering, but it’s the subscription billing features that really stood out to me. One of the best ways to increase revenue streams is to customize and increase billing options. To that end, Revenue Grid offers loads of out-of-the-box configurations and lets you add additional offerings like usage-led pricing to capture additional revenue.

Features: Billing customization isn’t the only feature SaaS companies will love. There is a dunning system to reduce involuntary churn, chargeback automation, some pretty detailed reporting functionality, and automated revenue recognition.

Revenue Grid is a revenue intelligence solution that increases pipeline visibility and helps your reps complete deals and optimize revenue. Your finance team may not find much use for the platform, but it could be a bit of a game changer if you use sales reps to close enterprise accounts.

Why I picked Revenue Grid: There aren’t many revenue management systems aimed squarely at sales reps, but this is one of the most comprehensive solutions that is. It provides reps with a range of features to help them sell, but the platform’s AI-powered Signals is the one I think is the most powerful. It provides guided selling suggestions (like when to send a follow-up email) that eliminate guesswork and help your team drive through more deals.

Features include automatic activity capturing through Salesforce, performance and revenue reports, pipeline visibility, and sales forecasting.

Integrations are available for a range of sales tools. This includes Salesforce, Oracle, SAP, Zoom, Outlook, and Dropbox.

Prisync is ‌competitor price tracking software designed to help ecommerce businesses monitor and optimize their pricing strategy. It provides real-time pricing data for a host of competitors, allowing you to adjust your prices to remain competitive.

Why I picked Prisync: When a quick Google search helps consumers find the best price for a particular product, having the upper hand over your competitors can make all the difference for an ecommerce store. And with Prisync you don’t have to trawl through your competitors’ sites one by one. Instead, all pricing and stock availability is collated in a single dashboard.

Features include real-time data on competitor pricing, including product descriptions, images, and stock availability. It also includes a range of customization options, allowing businesses to set their own pricing rules and strategies. There’s some reasonably detailed analytics and insights functionality, too.

Comptera lets you set optimal prices in real-time depending on demand and availability.

Competera is a cloud-based revenue management system that provides a range of pricing tools to help SaaS and ecommerce brands maximize their revenue and stay ahead of competitors. It’s not an all-in-one solution like some other options on this list, but it excels at the couple of things it does.

Why I picked Comptera: To put it simply, this is the software to use if you want to optimize your product pricing. The tool uses a huge number of data points (things like competitive data, seasonality, the weather, inventory levels, shopping history, elasticity, you get the picture) to create an optimal pricing structure. If that weren’t enough, it even lets you change how prices are calculated to achieve goals like getting rid of stock or recovering previously lost margins.

Features: Comptera’s main feature is its pricing platform that I’ve described above. But it also offers competitive data analysis that lets you compare your pricing to your competitors, and pricing automation, which automatically suggests prices for products.

Integrations: Competera integrates with a variety of other software solutions, including ERP, CRM, and ecommerce platforms. Some of its integrations include SAP, Magento, Salesforce, and Oracle.

Pricing: Pricing upon request

Sage Intacct is a cloud-based financial management platform, similar to QuickBooks. Any business can use its accounting platform, but it’s particularly popular with SaaS CFOs owing to its in-depth reporting functionality.

Why I picked Sage Intacct: Reporting and forecasting is a major part of revenue management, and this is where Sage Intacct excels. The platform makes it easy to account for over 500 billing scenarios and track over 200 reports. And these are exactly the kind of revenue metrics investors expect to see if your SaaS is looking for funding. Almost all of these reports can be automated, meaning your finance team has to do very little to project revenue or budget for the year ahead.

Features: As a high-end accounting platform, Sage Intacct has a bunch of heavy duty features your finance team will love. This includes automated revenue recognition functionality, compliant revenue management, and spend management. You can also use the tool to manage subscription billing.

Integrations: There are more than 350 integrations for Sage Intacct, including every major CRM, ecommerce platform, business management, and payroll tool.

  • User-friendly dashboards
  • Automated reconciliations


  • Steep learning curve
  • Lack of customer service

12. SubscriptionFlow - Best for freemium subscriptions

A screenshot of SubscriptionFlow's platform
You can easily extend and customize freemium and trial offers using Subscription Flow.

SubscriptionFlow is a subscription management platform that uses AI to automate and optimize most parts of the subscription billing process. What that means is that you can automate subscription cycles, take the best actions to limit churn, and generate real-time insights

Why I picked SubscriptionFlow: The software is a pretty robust all rounder for managing SaaS subscriptions, but it has a standout freemium and trial feature. It offers a lot more flexibility when it comes to creating trials compared to other systems, and automates a lot of the process. Subscribers can extend their trial with a single click, for instance, and they get automated reminders to upgrade. The software also lets you track trial usage and use that data to incentivize upgrades.

Features: In addition to it’s freemium and trial offerings, SubscriptionFlow handles recurring billing, lets you offer metered billing, automatically retries failed payments, and has some pretty in-depth reporting and analytics tools.

Integrations are plentiful. SubscriptionFlow integrates with platforms like WordPress, Shopify, and Webflow, as well as all major accounting systems, CRMs like Salesforce and HubSpot, and marketing platforms like Mailchimp.

Pricing: From $149 per month for three users

Free trial: Demo available


  • Clear user interface
  • All-in-one subscription billing solution
  • Awesome support


  • No sandbox area for testing
  • More documentation would be useful

Other Revenue Management Software Options

Here are a selection of other revenue management systems that didn't make my top 12, but are still worth checking out:

  1. GoCardless - Best for processing payments
  2. RevenueCat - Best for managing in-app purchases
  3. Planhat - Best for customer success management
  4. Stripe - Best for revenue recovery
  5. Recurly - Best for global businesses
  6. Paddle - Best for cross-border tax management

How I Selected the Best Revenue Management Software

Want to know how I selected these revenue management systems? Let me explain. I’ve used my RevOps experience to analyze how these tools stack up against the following criteria:

Core Functionality

Revenue management systems serve different purposes for different teams and different types of companies. Most aren’t all-in-one solutions, which means I looked for tools that did at least one following functions really well:

  • Revenue recognition
  • Price optimization
  • Subscription management

Key Features

To deliver the functionality I outline above, each of the revenue management systems had to have at least a couple of the following features:

  • SaaS accounting tools: SaaS businesses face several accounting challenges. Where applicable, these tools should make it easy for companies to accurately recognize their revenue and abide by specific accounting standards like GAAP.
  • A range of pricing models: There’s more than one way to price a monthly subscription. That’s why I’ve prioritized software that has a range of built-in pricing models and makes it easy for businesses to combine or switch between them
  • Billing automation and revenue recovery: Optimizing revenue is as much about invoicing as it is about setting the right price. Revenue recognition software should completely automate the process of sending invoices and recovering payments, while also offering tools like payment retries to reduce involuntary churn.


As your business grows, your revenue management software should be able to handle increased data volume and complexity. It should also be easy to customize to fit your evolving business needs.


SaaS billing systems are complicated. That’s why I prioritized tools that fit neatly into your existing setup.


Revenue recognition systems need to generate a positive ROI, otherwise what’s the point in them? I’ve selected tools with a wide range of price points, but I believe they all offer value for money.
