SaaS companies often operate on a subscription-based model. The revenue for the service comes in monthly/annually based on the subscription type that a customer has opted for. It’s very important for SaaS businesses to retain their customers as the longer customer sticks around, the more revenue company makes. If a customer churns quickly, the company loses out on the investment made to acquire that customer in the first place.

This dashboard proves to be very effective in analysing the pulse points and preferences of the customers. Keeping a regular track of new subscriptions, conversion rate and product-based revenues can help decision makers spot issues well ahead of time and take necessary actions before things get out of control.
