Measuring the right analytics is key to growing a SaaS or subscription business over the long term. After all, if you’re not measuring how your business is performing, how can you make decisions to improve it in the future?
That said, it’s crucial to choose the right analytics tool for your business, whether it’s Baremetrics, ChartMogul, or ProfitWell. Read on to learn more about these analytics platforms, including key features, pricing, and more.
Baremetrics is a subscription analytics toolkit built for SaaS and subscription companies. Our toolkit helps subscription companies track the metrics most critical to their business, and then use smart features to take action on these insights.
Baremetrics empowers subscription businesses to grow with features that recover revenue, uncover why customers are cancelling, automate financial forecasting, and more.
Compared to ChartMogul and ProfitWell, Baremetrics offers the most comprehensive set of features essential to growing a subscription business, all in one tool.
ChartMogul is an analytics tool that’s aimed at helping subscription businesses measure, understand, and grow their revenue. A key focus of the platform is providing accurate data that can be analyzed using advanced editing and visualization options.
While ChartMogul has strong data analytics and segmentation capabilities, it lacks many of the features necessary to take action on any insights discovered.
For example, the platform will likely need to be paired with another tool for automated dunning and revenue recovery. In the long run, it can be challenging (and expensive) to manage multiple platforms to grow your subscription business effectively.
ProfitWell is a toolkit offers revenue automation and metrics tracking products for SaaS and subscription businesses. This includes the ProfitWell Metrics platform, the Retain® churn reduction software, and other solutions.
Revenue automation is the primary focus of ProfitWell, so it offers a basic metrics platform for free and charges subscriptions for its automated solutions. This makes another analytics solution more useful for generating deeper insights that drive business growth.

Which is right for you: Baremetrics, ChartMogul, or ProfitWell?
All three platforms are built for SaaS and subscription businesses, and have different strengths and weaknesses depending on what you're looking for.
ChartMogul offers in-depth data analytics and segmentation, but it doesn’t offer many features for taking action on these insights. ProfitWell, on the other hand, is more focused on revenue automation and recovery — with less of a focus on analytics and reporting.
Baremetrics provides an easy-to-use analytics dashboard with dozens of key metrics for SaaS and subscription businesses. We also go beyond analytics by also offering automated tools for dunning and churn insights, as well advanced financial forecasting and scenario planning.
Our unique combination of features help subscription companies track real-time performance and take action on these insights to propel their business forward.
