The golden metric for SaaS companies is Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR, sometimes also referred to as CARR).
This document is meant for young SaaS companies, typically with ARR less than $5M. It should help you monitor ARR and associated key metrics like growth, gross margins, CAC. For SaaS companies with ARR above $5M, the MIS can get more complex as either revenue or the cost gets a bit more detailed by customer segments (SMB or enterprise), geo (US vs India vs others) as well as channels (direct vs partners).
We have also added comments in the MIS to define the metric and explain why it is important.
Note: This template is not relevant for SaaS companies with Usage-based pricing or PLG as a GTM strategy.
