# How to Calculate Average Revenue per User in Sage Intacct

### Making the most of your Sage Intacct data

## What is Average Revenue per User?

Average Revenue per User (ARPU) is a metric that looks at the average revenue generated by each customer over a given time period.

ARPU is calculated by dividing the total revenue generated by the number of customers you have.

For example, if you have 100 customers and you generate $100,000 in revenue, your ARPU is $1,000.

ARPU is a very important metric for companies that are trying to grow their customer base. If you have a low ARPU, it means that you have to acquire more customers in order to generate the same amount of revenue.

For example, if you have 100 customers and you generate $100,000 in revenue, your ARPU is $1,000. If you have 1,000 customers and you generate $100,000 in revenue, your ARPU is $100.
