Case Study

Delivering Insights Into Customers and Revenue for $340M Software-As-A-Service Company

"SLKone delivered, within weeks of starting, static and trending KPIs which finance leadership had requested internally for over 9 months. These insights will allow for substantially more visibility into the health of their business and financial decisions moving forward."


  • The client had no visibility to their Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) and Customer install base; a vital metric to understand the health of a SAAS business
  • Finance leadership had pressed internal resources over the course of 9 months to provide insights into this, and other metrics, to no avail
  • Due to a combination of resource and perceived data constraints, there had been no successful attempts to identify these metrics
  • SLKone was engaged to fill this gap in understanding, and derive an ARR waterfall calculation (including install base), as well as several other key SAAS metrics

Bespoke Solutions

  • SLKone researched the available client data and interviewed several internal teams which resulted in successfully calculating an ARR install base and, subsequently, ARR and Customer base waterfall
  • In addition, SLKone was able to calculate other relevant metrics including: CAC, ACL, CLTV, and more
  • To convey these metrics readily-accessible workbooks were created to allow for quick and accurate updates
  • Analysis was performed for the proceeding six quarters to supplement the metrics with historical performance trending

Leading With Results

  • KPIs which had not existed previously and thought unobtainable were identified, calculated, and presented over the course of several weeks
  • Sustainable and easily updatable workbooks were delivered to provide insights into this month, or over the prior 6 quarters trending
  • Valuable insight was provided to the client as fundamental revenue and customer metrics were quantified, which prior to their engagement with SLKone had not existed
