Leading European media and publishing company commits to multiyear contract expansion to add additional lines of business following the successful consolidation of all digital and print customer accounts to Aria

San Francisco, CA – April 10, 2024Aria Systems, the leader in empowering enterprises to accelerate subscription and usage-based revenue growth, today announced that DPG Media Group has extended its contract with Aria for another three years, following the successful on-boarding of its two million subscribers to Aria Billing Cloud. DPG Media, a leading European media and publishing company with revenues of nearly $2 billion, can now support all print and digital subscribers from across its 58 newspaper titles in the Netherlands and Belgium in a centralized environment, while pursuing incremental revenue opportunities through the launch of new services and pricing models.

“The proven capability of Aria’s cloud billing platform to handle large volumes of subscriptions has allowed us to consolidate all accounts into a single system where we can move faster to better service our customers with new product and pricing offers,” said Leslie Jacobs, IT Director Business Applications, DPG Media. “Throughout the implementation process, Aria’s professional services team demonstrated a deep understanding of the media and publishing industry, working seamlessly alongside our team to overcome challenges, navigate hurdles, and ultimately complete a successful migration.”  

With the full implementation now complete, DPG Media joins Berlingske Media, Jysk Fynske Medier (JFM), Oxford University Press, Polaris Media, and Stampen Media within Aria’s expansive media and publishing portfolio. DPG Media had previously used multiple on-premises systems that were unable to unify all customers into a single view. With two million subscriber accounts across digital and print environments now fully live on the Aria platform, DPG Media can more easily introduce creative new services and pricing models that will accelerate revenue growth.

“For digitizing media and publishing companies, like DPG Media, a modern and agile billing and subscriber management platform that can handle subscription complexity in great numbers is a critical necessity,” said Tom Dibble, President and CEO, Aria Systems. “The successful onboarding of DPG Media’s print and digital subscribers to Aria, followed by the extension of our relationship with DPG Media, demonstrates the power and scale of our cloud platform.”
