    FlyCode (s2022)Active • 7 employees • Boston, MA, USA
    FlyCode Dunning & Payment Management AI that helps subscription merchants maximize revenue. We reduce passive churn by managing payment failures intelligently. We’re Jake, Etai, and TD and we’re building FlyCode. TL;DR: If you sell SaaS or B2C subscriptions, we’re here to help you recover lost revenue due to failed payments and involuntary churn. ‘Involuntary’ or ‘Passive’ churn is a hidden Revenue Killer 💳 for Subscription Businesses ❌ THE PROBLEM: Recovering Failed Payments is Complex Involuntary churn refers to the loss of subscribers due to payment failures, not due to them actively canceling. While it is both possible and a worthwhile strategy to attempt to win back a customer during the cancellation process — involuntary churn is not intentional and in most cases, your customers aren’t even aware that their payment failed. 💰 Bottom line? Effective payment optimization does reduce involuntary churn and will increase ARR by as much as 5-10% FLYCODE SOLUTION 💡 FlyCode leverages ML and AI to provide Payment Optimization and smart payment retries to maximize subscription revenue and reduce churn. We apply a unique model tailored to each Merchant and their customers to ensure optimal results. ⚡️Automatically recover failed subscription payments and reduce passive churn ⚡️Use ML & AI based payment optimization to find the best time to charge your customers ⚡️ Improve customer experience by coordinating payment retries with customer emails/SMS 🛠️ We support OOTB + Custom Integrations for Merchants and White-Label for Platforms
