OPEXEngine Launches Breakthrough Technology R&D Benchmarking Solution

OPEXEngine, the world’s leading SaaS benchmarking platform, today launches its new R&D benchmarks solution. The benchmarks help technology executives invest in R&D with more confidence by comparing their own costs and performance with similar organizations.

New R&D benchmarking solution at a glance:

  • Benchmarks for 65+ R&D metrics
  • Comparisons of direct hire vs outsourcing models
  • KPIs for resource allocation and engineering execution (including speed, quality, and efficiency)
  • Available as a standalone solution, or as part of  OPEXEngine’s BenchmarkEngine™platform

The new benchmarks have been developed in conjunction with executives at leading technology organizations, and build on OPEXEngine’s best-in-class analytics, which is used by CFOs, investors, and leadership teams at many of the world’s most important SaaS companies.

With development tools and engineering practices being continuously improved, these new R&D benchmarks will inform organization investments in R&D, where there are often challenging trade-offs between costs, speed, and efficiency. The solution helps technology organizations make well-informed planning and strategy decisions, give themselves a common discussion framework to rally internal teams, and find opportunities to drive operational excellence.

“An efficient and effective R&D process is increasingly the critical factor to determining the long-term success of technology organizations,” said Lauren Kelley, Founder, and CEO. “Our new solution extends the insights we already offer SaaS businesses and means that every technology organization’s leadership team can benchmark themselves to their peers and to market leaders. With highly relevant and recent data, they can inform every strategy and investment decision with the best possible context.”

The R&D benchmark solution is available in a special beta phase from today, with the full solution available from September 2022.

OPEXEngine is a subsidiary company of Bain & Company.
