We’re headed back to the 2022 SaaStr Annual conference this September 13-15 in the beautiful Bay Area! This year, our theme is: “Don’t panic—plan.” While the current business landscape might be unpredictable, there’s no time to panic! The Jirav team is ready to chat about how you’re driving growth within your organization in spite of macroeconomic factors, industry trends, and global issues. We’ll share our recommendations for planning, plus what we’ve seen others do in uncertain times.
Ultimately, what it comes down to is two words: scenario planning. While we can never know exactly what’s coming, one way to set up your business (and your finances) for success is to plan for multiple scenarios. And, more importantly, ensure that you’re managing the business against those scenario plans on a monthly basis so that there’s plenty of time to adjust or pivot if conditions change.
To help your business stay resilient and successful through any scenario—ranging from high growth, business-as-usual, or even apocalyptic, worst-case scenarios—you’ll want to make sure your teams are armed with the tools and resources they need to plan through it all. Static budgets are just that: static. Deviations will always occur, no matter the scenario. Make sure your organization is performing a budget vs. actuals analysis (or variance analysis) on a monthly basis. With an iterative approach, you can improve your budget accuracy and become better equipped for quick course correction.
Jirav is purpose-built for scenario planning, with out-of-the-box functionality to simplify and automate “what if” scenario comparisons and budget vs. actuals reports. Swing by our booth (#213) at SaaStr Annual to learn more about how our solution can make scenario planning a breeze. You can also view a live demo, snag amazing swag, and enter our Jiraffle for a chance to win a giraffe (more on that below)!
Add Jirav to your SaaStr Annual agenda
Looking for sessions to fill your schedule? Don't miss our VP of Marketing, Eric Wong, and Marketing Performance Manager, Emillie Kuo, give a special presentation on Wednesday! Eric and Emillie will take the stage at 3:00 PM to speak on, "How to Create a Flexible, ‘Economics’-based Marketing Strategy for High Growth Companies with Jirav."
Growth companies need to be adaptable while also always driving to predictability. Building a marketing plan for high-growth companies requires a better understanding of the “economics” of revenue generation, and the ability to scale programs up or down to meet revenue goals or accommodate for pressure on budgets. In our session, we’ll give you a little insight into the approaches used at Jirav and other companies on their race to $100M.
WHEN: September 14th at 3:00 PM PDT
WHERE: Sponsors We Love Stage B: Cantina
