    Hey Ben – it was good to talk to you last night.
    $450 a month is nearer our target ARPU, currently we’re running lower than this, but aiming to increase the average. It get’s tricky to use as a KPI when a number of our accountant clients have rafts of accounts at $20 a month, and we have some clients at $1,500 a month. In essence we have two types of clients – “direct”, with an ARPU as you describe, and “channel” – with a lower value much nearer that of the other accounting-only or CRM-only providers.

    Glad you clarified the ARPU. As a trial customer of Brightpearl I was about to pack up if it was going to cost me a small business $450 per month!!!!!!
