Detailed Survey Reports
Each year, OPEXEngine conducts an intensive and detailed survey of software and SaaS companies with revenues between $1M and $400m in the previous year’s revenues. Throughout the year, OPEXEngine works with CFOs and finance teams from this sector to review performance metrics and models. Based on this work, and the data collected in the annual benchmarking, we also produce annual Industry and Benchmark Reports, which are used by companies, service firms and investors to gain a deeper understanding of operating benchmarks and data trends for the sector. Consulting firms use the reports to advise clients, and analysts include OPEXEngine’s data and analysis in their reports.
