    Challenges Without MRR Retention Waterfall Reports

    • Overreliance on Manual Spreadsheets: SaaS companies often grapple with a myriad of manual Excel spreadsheets, hindering the efficiency of managers in tracking MRR retention based on customer cohorts. This dependence not only consumes valuable time but also introduces the potential for errors and delayed decision-making.
    • Lack of Self-Service MRR Retention Analysis: The absence of user-friendly self-service tools compounds the challenge, making it arduous for leaders from R&D, support, and consulting to gain insights into customer base dynamics and historical events influencing customer retention.

    Benefits of MRR Retention Waterfall Reports

    • Comprehensive Cohort Analysis: Solver's MRR Retention Waterfall Report adopts a waterfall format, enabling users to scrutinize the MRR trajectory of customer cohorts over time. This facilitates the identification of critical characteristics that may explain variations in MRR, empowering leaders to refine products, services, and sales processes.
    • Enhanced Decision-Making: The visual and intuitive nature of the report expedites decision-making by providing a clear understanding of MRR trends and exceptions. This not only minimizes the risk of erroneous decisions but also accelerates the implementation of strategic improvements.

    About the MRR Retention Waterfall Report

    This waterfall report can be run from-to any month and year and uses color coding to highlight exceptions and trends for Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) retention. The user can look at the initial MRR from all the new customers in any given period and monitor them into the following months and years to see if that customer cohort displays any important characteristics that could explain why the MRR from them may be higher or lower than other customer cohorts. Findings can then be used to improve related products, services, sales processes, etc.
