Best Practices for SaaS and Software Benchmarking for the Rest of 2018

Best Practices for SaaS and Software Benchmarking for the Rest of 2018  

The SaaS IPO and M&A market is extraordinarily strong.  Venture and PE capital inflows to SaaS companies also continue to be strong. With the second half of 2018 approaching for most SaaS and software companies, it is time to review and tweak second half budgets and plans.

Now is a great time to benchmark your KPIs and the operating metrics that drive your KPIs. Whether you are introducing new products and expecting additional revenues, changing your sales model or structure, hiring and ramping new people, or revamping operations, you need a context for evaluating your budget, operations and hiring for the rest of the year. 

SaaS operational benchmarks comparisons will help you adjust your planning and more accurately forecast if you are on track to end the year as targeted.  Hear how these companies use benchmarking in their ongoing planning process:

As CFO, I use SaaS metrics to augment my GAAP financials. Since SaaS metrics are neither governed nor standardized, OPEXEngine currently serves as the most prominent authority in this area.
