What You're Missing Without a SaaS Metrics Dashboard

If your revenue is recurring like subscription revenue, SaaS metrics are the lifeblood of your business. These metrics are the building blocks of your profitability and growth. GAAP Financials aren't telling you the whole story so that begs the question, what else are you missing out on without a SaaS metrics dashboard to visualize your financial and operational data into actionable insights?

Ascent Conference: Finance & Accounting Playbook

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of participating in this year’s Ascent Conference, a staple of the startup, SaaS, and venture capital communities in the Greater NYC area. Because of COVID, the event was held virtually. I gave a keynote presentation on “How to Extend Your Runway with a Finance and Accounting Playbook.” As the founder and CEO of AcctTwo, a services and technology company delivering the Future of Finance and Accounting to nearly 1,000 organizations throughout the country, my team and I have firsthand experience implementing the processes, controls, and technology needed to optimize financial resources for SaaS companies at variety of growth stages. As a result of this experience, we’ve developed a Finance and Accounting Playbook that I shared during the keynote. The effects of COVID-19 for the past few months have only reinforced the need for this kind of planning.

Why Automating Your SaaS KPIs is Critical to CMRR Growth

If you are like most SaaS and subscription business leaders, you’re ready to ditch those Excel-based models for tracking growth metrics, unit economics, and other key performance indicators (KPIs). Those models can lag weeks behind, are manual, error-prone, and lack the detail for a deep analysis of your growth levers.

While Excel is no doubt a great tool – and admittedly an accountant’s best friend – it’s just not up to task to handle the complexity of tracking and analyzing the activity of a scaling company’s subscription base. That's why we developed AcctTwo SaaS Intelligence.

Are Your Reports Investor Worthy?

To quote Wayne’s World, “We're not worthy!”, is how most startups feel when reporting to investors, or potential investors, with their outdated Excel sheets riddled with manual errors. You started your startup on the core belief that your product or service is game changing, and you want the world to know it. But the minute you get in front of an investor you start to second guess yourself and your numbers.

RPA Makes Room for Your Entire Accounting Agenda

Accountants have always relied on automation to make their lives easier, even going back as far as the abacus. But now thanks to data-driven technologies and self-directed processes, robotic process automation (RPA) is possible. And as a result of these new capabilities, accounting is transforming in a number of ways.

RPA is lowering costs, refining accounting insights, speeding up reporting, and eliminating errors and omissions. Where accountants really feel the impact of automation, however, is in their own workloads and schedules.
