"Vindicia Subscribe has enabled us to smoothly transition into a subscription billing model, yet still handle one-time payments for specific offerings."
— Steven Flenory, studio director, Major League Gaming
Major subscription-based product launches made it clear that Major League Gaming needed a solution optimized for subscription payment handling, and one that would help retain players and fans while acquiring new ones. They also needed a solution that supported different business models for users who preferred a non-recurring engagement. The overall business challenges MLG was facing before are handling billing for multiple products, reaching a global audience, minimizing PCI burden, and implementing a robust entitlement infrastructure.
Vindicia Subscribe (formerly CashBox) is the ideal subscription billing and payments solution for this company. Vindicia Subscribe improves customer retention via sophisticated retry logic and native campaign management. The Vindicia Subscribe entitlement infrastructure enables MLG to easily facilitate customer access to various business services.
