    Unlocking Financial Insights: The Power of Net Burn Rate Dashboards in SaaS Companies

    In the dynamic landscape of Software as a Service (SaaS) companies, where agility and informed decision-making are paramount, having a comprehensive understanding of your financial health is a game-changer. A modern Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solution, such as Solver, is proving to be indispensable in providing executives, especially CFOs, with a robust Net Burn Rate Dashboard. This tool not only addresses the pain points commonly faced by SaaS companies but also propels them towards optimized liquidity planning and enhanced business performance.

    Challenges in the SaaS Financial Landscape

    • Manual Excel Overload: Many SaaS companies grapple with the inefficiencies of managing Net Burn Rate through manual Excel spreadsheets. This not only consumes valuable time but increases the likelihood of errors, hindering timely and accurate decision-making.
    • Poor or delayed Liquidity Insight: Cash and liquidity are critical metrics for most SaaS leaders constantly monitor. Without real time insight to Net Burn rate, the risk of a cash crunch is heightened.
    • Lack of Self-Service Net Burn Rate Analysis: The absence of user-friendly, self-service Net Burn Rate analysis tools exacerbates the problem. Executives find themselves dependent on others for critical financial insights, leading to delays in decision-making.

    Benefits of a Net Burn Rate Dashboard

    • Real-Time Visibility: A Net Burn Rate Dashboard provides real-time visibility into key drivers such as Total Revenue and Gross Burn Rate. This empowers executives to make informed decisions on the fly, reducing the risk of delayed or misguided actions.
    • Comprehensive Analysis: The Solver CPM solution offers a 3-page Net Burn Rate Dashboard, complete with monthly, Year-to-Date (YTD), and trend charts. A root-cause analysis page breaks down Net Burn Rate into Revenue and Gross Burn Rate components, offering a comprehensive understanding of the financial landscape.
    • Strategic Insights: The Top 10 report included in the dashboard highlights the top revenues and operating expenses for a given period, offering strategic insights that aid in optimizing financial performance.

    About the Net Burn Rate Dashboard

    The Net Burn Rate dashboard consists of 3 tabs: Tab 1 provides a dashboard where the user can analyze monthly and YTD variances as well as trends for Net Burn Rate and its components (chosen from a drop-down list). Tab 2 shows root cause analysis for Total Revenue, Gross Burn Rate and Net Burn Rate with a waterfall chart as well as a detailed report. Tab 3 shows charts and ranked lists with Top Revenues by GL account and Top Expenses by GL Account.
