Monthly Recurring Revenue Challenge

The shifting marketplace and IT business models are quickly evolving. Clients are requesting technologies be delivered "as a Service" ("aaS"). Recurring revenue is the lifeblood of any "aaS" or annuity services business. The metric that is used to track this pot of recurring gold is Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR), sometimes known as Annuity Services Contract revenue. A healthy MRR makes a company more stable and predictable both operationally and financially. However, building a healthy MRR pipeline can present challenges for a company who is transitioning from a transactional revenue based model to an annuity revenue based model. As a company shifts to an annuity services model, they must infuse their pipeline with a high volume of managed services prospects customers build a steady stream of cash flow. Transitioning requires significant working capital and companies often will need to streamline their technical operations, determine a pricing strategy, restructure their sales teams, build a solid sales pipeline and rebrand their image.
