Subscription Analytics & Metrics Reporting

Because RevenueBooks™ is built on SaaSOptics which was designed to provide powerful, optimized analytics for subscription companies, RevenueBooks™ can do things that many financial reporting systems can't do, like project future renewal revenues and bookings using statistical models, report on upgrades/upsells, and rapidly produce MRR growth, CLV, renewal, and churn reports.

RevenueBooks™ is easily configured with your contract terminology and supports multiple contracts per customer. Contract transactions can include one-time items such as a license fee or implementation service, as well as any number of recurring or subscription items, including SaaS subscription fees, variable fees, and maintenance fees. Upgrades, up-sells, downgrades, coterminous contract changes, and new add-on terms are all supported. RevenueBooks™ even provides a unique transaction "normalization" function that makes it easy to compare dissimilar contract terms. Normalize two and three year contracts to one year, or normalize subscriptions to monthly subscriptions for a better understanding of how your real average deal size or monthly recurring revenue is trending. And, if you have business objectives or targets for revenue, average deal size, bookings, or any other metric, RevenueBooks™ makes it easy to define and report results against those targets.

In addition to being your system of record for revenue (subscription and other), RevenueBooks™ is a comprehensive contract system of record. RevenueBooks™ provides a secure, centralized contract document repository. RevenueBooks™ can hold all contract and license documentation, including master license documents, individual redlines, and digital versions of executed agreements. All of these are stored with the recorded contract transactions for easy access when inspection or audit is needed.

It's all designed to be easy - easy to implement, easy to use, and easy to afford. Contact us today!
