What SaaS Metrics CEOs Should Monitor
SaaS metrics are an integral part of reporting when analyzing a business’s growth. Here are a few subscription business metrics to look out for:
- Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) — How much are you spending to draw in new customers?
- Customer Churn — Understand your customers’ experiences when using your product.
- Net Dollar Retention — Determine the company’s recurring revenue.
These SaaS KPIs are out-of-the-box reportable metrics inside Sage Intacct. This powerful platform provides fast, complete, and intelligent reports with colorful in-depth graphs that help you visualize the business’s overall health. Reports such as billings and payments are automatically prepared for investors to help them budget on time. High-level meetings can become more productive by sharing bookings and revenues with executives and board leaders in cohorts and, over time, allowing them to make informed decisions. The billing forecasts will bring more predictability for the future and can help you visualize what’s to come in the company. This allows CEOs to make effective decisions today while looking a few quarters down the line.
