Boston & Palo Alto – May 20, 2019 -- Bain & Company and OPEXEngine are pleased to announce they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining Bain’s industry leading management consulting services with OPEXEngine’s proprietary benchmarking platform to deliver transformative results for technology clients.
As SaaS transforms the software industry and investor expectations, the goalposts for outperformance continue to move. Software companies need a data-driven approach to balance revenue growth with operational efficiency and profitability. OPEXEngine’s benchmarking platform leads the market in defining and measuring key performance indicators underpinning SaaS growth and value. Validated benchmarking data enables decision-makers to invest more heavily in productive areas and restructure inefficient functions – from G&A to R&D to Sales & Marketing.
“This partnership enables us to further accelerate and enhance client results,” said Simon Heap, head of Bain & Company’s global Software Practice. “Our tailored approach coupled with insights driven by OPEXEngine’s extensive dataset helps companies move quickly from diagnosis to action to results. This accelerates the decisions needed to design a transformation strategy, optimize a product portfolio, drive engineering efficiency, or improve go-to-market performance. It also enables our Private Equity clients to create better outcomes through new insights in due diligence and post-acquisition operational improvements.”
“C-level executives use our peer benchmarks to make effective resource allocations in budgets and planning, and invest for growth with less risk,” said Lauren Kelley, CEO and founder of OPEXEngine. “The Bain-OPEXEngine partnership pairs Bain’s collaborative approach and deep expertise in software value creation with OPEXEngine’s 10-year+ longitudinal benchmark database to help private and public Software and SaaS companies balance growth with operational efficiencies.”
