As your trusted monday channel partner, we’re here to guide you through these essential questions. Buckle up, data enthusiasts – we’re diving into the numbers!
KPIs We All Have In Common
Every business, regardless of size or sector, shares a common foundation: Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). These are the numbers that drive insights, inform decisions, and serve as a measure of overall business health.
So, let’s set the stage – here are five universal KPIs that should command your attention, regardless of your industry. Leveraging monday, we’ll demonstrate how to make these essential metrics a cornerstone of your data-driven decision-making process
Revenue Growth: The most straightforward and perhaps the most important metric, revenue growth, shows the increase in a company’s sales over a specific period. It provides a clear picture of the business’ financial health.
Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC): This metric calculates the total cost of acquiring a new customer, including marketing and sales expenses. It’s crucial to understand the effectiveness of your marketing initiatives and the profitability of each new customer.
Customer Lifetime Value (CLV): CLV estimates the total revenue a business can reasonably expect from a single customer account. It considers a customer’s revenue value and compares that number to the company’s predicted customer lifespan. Businesses use this metric to identify significant customer segments that are the most valuable to the company.
Employee Productivity: This metric assesses individual or departmental efficiency. It could be measured in different ways, such as revenue per employee, projects completed per quarter, or the usage of time-tracking tools like monday.
Net Promoter Score (NPS): This metric measures customer experience and predicts business growth. By asking the simple question: “On a scale of 0-10, how likely is it that you would recommend [brand] to a friend or colleague?” you can gauge customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Now, let’s move forward with how to track these metrics using monday.
