Today, we're exclusively launching re:cap benchmarking! A platform set to redefine how digital companies analyze and utilize their financial metrics. And another step in our ambition to provide long-term and holistic funding solutions for software companies. What do you need to know?

In the startup ecosystem, a deep understanding of financial metrics has evolved from very important to absolutely necessary. For tech companies it’s crucial not only to grasp their current position but also to know how you can improve your metrics and predict how they will develop under different scenarios. 

However, the true value of KPIs lies in their contextual relationship with the respective industry and competitors. 

Consider this: What does it truly mean if your operating profit margin is at 20%? Not that much. While you may assume it to be a favorable number, the absence of context leaves you uncertain whether you are outperforming or lagging behind your competitors. Without this context, this KPI holds little significance.

That’s where re:cap benchmarking comes into play.

With re:cap benchmarking our new and existing customers are able to optimize their business by unlocking actionable advice to improve their financial performance. 

Fancy taking a look at what it has in store for you? Let’s have a glimpse into the different features and their benefits.
