Frequently asked questions

Why should I buy one platform, instead of independent pieces, for my SaaS finance tech stack?

From 100s of interviews, we have heard that Controllers’ and CFOs’ most frustrating part of their job is managing integrations across systems, and the subsequent time they waste on doing reconciliations, on things such as billings, orders, upsells, and expenses. When the billing schedule and item master is in the same system, the initial, and subsequent order, comes into the GL, with all the dimensions for reporting, and revenue is immediately calculated and reported. Based on this market feedback, we created a single system that is the only combined subscription billing and financial management software with ARR, MRR and other key SaaS metrics, SaaS dashboards, revenue recognition, reporting, and Salesforce integration. You can see it in action here: What is the New Finance Technology Stack for SaaS Companies?

  • Auto-terminate unused usages upon contract expiration

When I should upgrade off Quickbooks to more robust financial system?

There are typically five reasons where basic accounting tends to strain under scale. As you grow in volume and complexity, these are the areas to prepare to automate. Proactive CFOs upgrade before the scale happens, some others wait until the processes start breaking down. We built Sage Ahead for Series A companies, that might otherwise only upgrade billing, to build the complete system for scale that includes expenses and cash-flow in the AICPA-recommended general ledger.

What are the key SaaS metrics for managing my business?

Jeff Epstein, Operating Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, describes the 6 Cs of SaaS Finance

  • CARR - includes contracted but not yet live ARR, nets out churned and projected churned ARR, and is normalized to a 1Y period, hence “annual”.
  • CAC Payback - Total sales, marketing, customer success, etc. costs to acquire a customer. Generally calculated quarterly
  • CLTV/CAC - Margin-affected value of a customer to a business over the course of its relationship 
  • Churn - The dollars that churned or downsell customers represented
  • Cash Flow - Cash generated after operating and capital expenditures, which adds back non-cash expenses like stock-based compensation
  • Cash Conversion Score - The ratio of CARR to capital raised to date (debt + equity) minus the cash on the balance sheet
