SaaS businesses require focus on your customers and changing markets as staying competitive is crucial to success in the SaaS business. Therefore, you must focus on the core business and have us monitor your profit margins and burn rate so you can continue working towards getting more market share, staying competitive, and growing your company.

SaaS businesses are a popular choice as they offer predictable cash flows and stickiness, once your customers start using it, they rely heavily on your infrastructure and don't want to migrate - All of these are attractive points from a business standpoint.

The attractiveness comes at a cost. For example, a user can upgrade, downgrade or add features, making the accounting process a nightmare for an non experienced individual. They can also be on an account freeze and decide to upgrade in the same month. However, its important to account for these changes correctly so you can understand the health of your businesses and make decisions correctly. Accounting for all these dynamic changes can get hard and this is where Aquifer team can add value by providing services in SaaS accounting.
