This metric along with Net New ARR can help RevOps, FP&As and business leaders alike with reporting and analysis of:

  • The amount of ARR acquired over time and top sources

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know my ARR is accurate?

To ensure metrics are accurately calculating ARR, you’ll be guided through defining your revenue logic and mapping your data in Sightfull. Initially, you may compare specific customer or time-period amounts to other data sources to validate these metrics and refine your data modeling as needed.

How are ARR changes in each time-period calculated?

The ARR Overview template automatically calculates changes using out-of-the-box metrics. These metrics compare the ARR sum of customer contracts in each time-period with the previous one. In this way, for example, Expansion ARR is calculated as the sum positive change in existing customer account period-over-period.

Can I track the ARR of specific customer accounts?

Yes. All Sightfull metrics can present results at the individual entity level. In the ARR Overview metrics, ARR changes and sum total can be displayed for individual customers at any point in time.

What if I have a “grace period” for customer renewals?

Sightfull supports configuration of a “grace period” to ensure Churned ARR is recognized according to each company’s business logic. See our documentation on “Configuring Grace Period” to learn more.
