Use case example: Average revenue per user (ARPU)

Whats is our monthly revenue? Whats is the monthly revenue per user? Is average revenue per user (ARPU) growing or declining? 

The chart in above example answers these questions. Monthly revenue (dollar value) generated by an organization is plotted using a column chart (also known as vertical bar chart) and average revenue earned per user are plotted using line chart with markers. 

With just a look, we can see that while the monthly revenue has increased from January to December, the ARPU is showing a declining trend. Is it because of decrease in prices in response to competition? Is the ARPU in line with our forecasts and industry average? These are the matters of further investigation, from the insights garnered from this chart.

You can use scatter plot template for further data analysis.

KPI Target Example: Average revenue per user > $150


Average Revenue Per User = Total operating revenue / Number of users
