Subscription Based Usage
From its inception, Athene was created to support subscription based usage of centrally
operated software. This forward thinking functionality allows subscribers to
receive unprecedented business advantages including:
Business collaborations using subscription based Internet applications produce
impressive cross company efficiencies and improve business effectiveness.
- The ability to partner with customers and suppliers by sharing the same
business information and tools. This yields operational efficiencies that can only
be achieved by collaborating across company lines. A true sense of cooperation is created
within each business situation. It's all about working together.
- Personal use of state-of-the-art business tools without the cost
of ownership. In exchange for low periodic subscription fees, businesses
can use a powerful business application without the cost of owning it. Collaborating
business groups all benefit and can even jointly fund their related business efforts.
- no servers
- reduced IS staff
- no purchase risk
- avoid obsolescence
- pay only for use of needed features
- leverage the service provider's strengths while focusing on core business
- Improved methods for communicating and managing business needs.
Each subscriber can have their own usage agreement. Usage agreements are defined using
Athene's Customer Administration tools. The customer folder contains the contractual
terms of usage including length of subscription, fee schedules, and included features.
The customer folder also contains an automated billing and invoicing engine with payment
ledger. Using Customer Administration tools, subscribers can even set-up their
own customers and cost centers.
