Digital River to Enable Subscription Billing for Siemens CAD Software

Sept. 23, 2013

Recently, Minneapolis-based e-commerce solutions provider Digital River said it has been chosen by Siemens for technology that manages subscription sales and billing of its product lifecycle management software. The Siemens unit, based in Plano, Texas, will make its Solid Edge computer-aided design (CAD) software available to customers on a subscription basis in the U.S., U.K. and Japan. Digital River will supply Siemens with its online smartChannel solution which it said will enable its software customers to make automatic monthly payments using standard online payment methods including credit cards or PayPal.

“More merchants are making B2B a top commerce priority and successfully involving their channel in their direct online selling experience,” said John Strosahl, an executive vice president with Digital River. “Siemens recognizes the importance this strategy can play in growing their Solid Edge business on a global basis while delivering best-in-class customer service at a local level. We are excited to work with this brand leader in building a progressive and seamless multi-channel experience.”
