# How to Calculate Average Revenue per Account in Sage Intacct

### Making the most of your Sage Intacct data

## What is Average Revenue per Account?

Average Revenue per Account (ARPA) is a metric that helps you determine how much money your company is making from each of its customers.

ARPA is calculated by dividing the total revenue generated by your company in a certain time period by the number of customers you have at the beginning of that time period.

For example, if you have 100 customers at the beginning of a quarter and you generate $1,000,000 in revenue, your ARPA is $10,000.

For most companies, ARPA is a critical metric because it helps them determine how much money they can expect to make from each customer.
