Due to ValueWorks´ out-of-the box integration scheme for operational systems as well as through its packaged software approach, the solution comes at a friction of TCO costs for Enterprise/SaaS-companies in comparison to a custom-build BI-project.
In detail, Enterprise Software/SaaS companies benefit from the following industry-specific content and product features:
- Automated reporting of SaaS-specific KPIs, e.g. Recurring Revenue, Net Revenue Retention, Customer Acquisitions Costs, Rule of 40
- Deep-drill visualizations of SaaS-specific KPIs, e.g. Recurring revenue breakdown, sales forecast vs. target, split of development capacity, sales pipeline as Marimekko graph
