Establish promising initial unit economics and SaaS metrics

Unit economics is the time that it takes to earn back the cost of acquiring a customer. It’s calculated by dividing your customer lifetime value (CLTV) by the cost to acquire a customer (CAC). Now is the time to shift from manual and ad-hoc calculations on billings and cash to consistent, real-time SaaS metrics to support your data-driven decisions.

I’m a SaaS Subscription startup and I want to upgrade off QuickBooks or Xero and am looking for my next Financial Management System. Is Sage Intacct a good next step for me?

Sage Intacct is the only complete Subscription + Financial Management solution – we uniquely offer SaaS finance teams one subscription system of record across billings, revenue, and cash, covering the entire customer lifecycle. This allows revenue operations to maximize CMRR and CLTV through innovative subscription pricing for new sales, upsells, and renewals. In turn, Controllers automate AP, AR, billing, rev rec, and consolidations, with controls, to accelerate the close and increase cash flow. And CFOs have reporting and forecasting visibility on the billings, revenue, and cash of the company to guide strategic investments and decisions.

What’s different about Sage Intacct’s Subscription Management Platform?

Most finance teams spend 80% of their time doing manual transaction support, and only 20% of their time doing strategic decision support. The best SaaS operational finance teams chose Sage Intacct to shift that to 20% manual, 80% strategic decision making. We have engineered our platform to eliminate manual, tedious processes that burn through weeks of work each month, such as manual entry of orders out of and exceptions to contract revenue recognition and billing. We then provide access to the necessary real-time SaaS metrics, financial dashboards, and tools to enable strategic analysis, forecasting, and scenario planning that allow CFOs to recommend new initiatives that grow revenue, reduce churn, improve efficiency of customer acquisition, direct product development that delights customers, adjusts pricing to maximize customer acquisition and profitability, and deliver the churn, cash-flow, CMRR, and other metrics with confidence to impress investors and secure new funding.

Order-entry-only suites don’t allow you to manage SaaS revenue recognition, billing, nor SaaS metrics. And subscription-billing-only solutions don’t allow you to track expenses, see cash-flow, nor forecast scenario planning for the company.

What is a story of Sage Intacct helping an early-stage SaaS company like me?

Once upon a time ... Bitly was getting big traction in defining and delivering on the new marketing space of Link Management

... and every day ... The Finance team was manually entering in new orders, manually billing for those orders, and manually doing financial reporting, all in Excel, and all time-consuming, with DSO @ 110 days and a 4 week close,

... until one day ... They decided they needed to upgrade their billing, financial, and reporting systems, and chose Sage Intacct, the first and last cloud financial system you will ever need,

... and because of that ...

they reduced Quote-to-Bill by 10% by integrating to,

  • so now, do automated invoicing, collections, and dunning,
  • so they reduced DSO from 110 to <60,
  • so they, increased cash-flow by 6 months
  • essentially creating a bridge financing without any dilution of equity, and

... and since that day ...

  • they have departmental level budgeting for proactively managing P/L,
  • real-time dashboards to give instant insights to the executive team for big business decisions,
  • and moved from closing the books in 4 weeks to 1 week to get data to the team faster,
  • while not having to hire any additional finance staff, a savings of $250,000,

... until finally ... they raised a $63M round from Spectrum Equity to fund their next stage of growth.
