Template Features:

  • Track MRR, customer acquisition, total active customers, churn rate, and more.
  • Simple database (easy to enter high level data each month).

Note, if you want the dashboard to track more than 12 months at a time, you can highlight the last column and drag it over for as many monthly periods as needed. Keep in mind that doing so would overwrite the YTD totals / goals.

I know there are more metrics you could add to this dashboard, but my goal was to just focus on the most important KPIs only for quicker data analysis, prioritization, and ease of use.

Here are some of the most important metrics to track:

Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) and Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR):

  • Why Important: These metrics provide insight into the predictable and recurring revenue generated by the company from its subscribers. They are fundamental for understanding the scale of the business and forecasting future growth.
  • Decisions: Adjust pricing strategies, evaluate the success of sales and marketing efforts, and make informed budgeting decisions for expansion or cost control.

Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV):

  • Why Important: CLTV measures the total revenue a business can expect from a single customer account throughout their relationship with the company. It helps in understanding the long-term value of customers and how much can be spent on acquiring them.
  • Decisions: Allocate resources to customer retention vs. acquisition, tailor product development to increase customer satisfaction and lifetime value, and refine targeting strategies.

Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC):

  • Why Important: CAC calculates the total cost of acquiring a new customer, including all sales and marketing expenses. It's crucial for evaluating the efficiency of your acquisition strategies and ensuring sustainable growth.
  • Decisions: Optimize marketing strategies, adjust budget allocation between different channels, and improve sales team efficiency.

Churn Rate:

  • Why Important: The churn rate indicates the percentage of customers or revenue lost over a specific period. It's a critical measure of customer satisfaction and product fit.
  • Decisions: Implement customer retention strategies, improve product offerings, and enhance customer support services.

Burn Rate:

  • Why Important: Burn rate measures how quickly a company uses up its cash reserves before generating positive cash flow from operations. It's crucial for understanding the company's runway and financial sustainability.
  • Decisions: Control spending, raise new funding, or pivot business strategies to extend the company's runway.

Rule of 40:

  • Why Important: This metric helps balance growth and profitability by stating that a company's growth rate plus profit margin should be greater than 40%. It's a benchmark for the health of SaaS companies.
  • Decisions: Reevaluate growth strategies and cost structures to achieve a healthy balance between growth and profitability.

Analyzing these metrics allows CFOs to make informed decisions regarding budget allocation, pricing strategies, customer acquisition and retention efforts, product development priorities, and funding requirements. By keeping a close eye on these key indicators, CFOs can steer their SaaS companies towards sustainable growth and profitability.
