These services were a great complement to what we provide our gTLD clients,” said Mike Salazar, CFO of Minds + Machines Group Limited. “The reaction from our clients, such as .london, has been very positive, making the transition from launch planning to operations seamless,” added Mike.
Minds + Machines has implemented NumberSense for its entire portfolio of launched strings such as .law, .london and .bayern.

It also provides a report suite for auditors to help maintain proper revenue books and records. NumberSense is currently powering the revenue recognition calculation of over 100,000 domains on a monthly basis.
In addition to NumberSense, Minds + Machines has selected the Folio Exchange (FE) platform to provide automated invoicing and remittance services. FE is a proven SaaS product that has been operating for over 10 years with over $1B of billings within other industries. FE’s web-based trade A/R and A/P modules automate and streamline the entire billing process for registries and registrars.
