General

What separates OPEXEngine’s BenchmarkEngine from other platforms?

Using over 250 KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), the BenchmarkEngine is an easy-to-use, secure, cloud-based platform used to compare company performance and operating metrics across all departments of a typical SaaS or software company to peers and market leaders.

How is EDGAREngine different from BenchmarkEngine?

EDGAREngine provides on-demand key financials for 18,000+ public companies for any time period, including 1-3 years pre-IPO. You can review multiple KPIs all in one report, such as:

Working Capital Metrics, Cashflow, Balance Sheet Items, Employee Numbers, Productivity Ratios, Market Caps and Valuations, Revenues and Growth Rates, Costs and Expenses, etc.

BenchmarkEngine is our easy-to-use, secure, cloud-based platform to compare company performance and operating metrics across all departments of a typical SaaS or software company to peers and market leaders. With benchmarks for over 200 KPIs, segmented into over 60 different cohorts by revenue size, average contract value, growth rates, and more, the BenchmarkEngine uses OPEXEngine’s proprietary database built over 15+ years of working with hundreds of SaaS and Software companies.

Features

Can I benchmark my company’s metrics based on specific categories?

With over 60 different cohorts categorized by revenue size, average contract value, growth rates, and more, you can set filters to look at specific metrics that may be more important for your company.

What companies are used in the BenchmarkEngine for comparisons?

Based on the filters that are set on the Benchmarking tab in the BenchmarkEngine, companies are then sorted and a benchmark is created to show an accurate comparison to peers in the market.

Am I able to benchmark my company if it is private?

One of the many filter options titled “By Ownership” gives you the option to choose between public or private. By choosing “Private”, your company will be compared to other private companies.

Security

OPEXEngine has been benchmarking software and SaaS companies for over 15 years, working with hundreds of venture-backed, IPO, and public companies – and has never had a data breach. At OPEXEngine, we take the confidentiality of our customer’s data very seriously.

Will my data be sold to outside companies for marketing purposes?
