The results of our analysis show that top-quartile-growth performers have much lower net-revenue churn than mean performers. The analysis also shows that net-revenue churn improves with larger average contract value (ACV), likely due to more structural churn among SMB customers and higher switching costs associated with larger contracts (Exhibit 1). In particular, between the SMB and the SMBs-and-enterprises customer types, top-quartile performers not only have net-revenue churn that is 14 to 23 percentage points less than mean performers but also have net-revenue churn that is negative in an absolute sense. Negative net-revenue churn means that these top-quartile performers would continue to grow even if they did not acquire any new customers (their ACV expansion in existing accounts is greater than any revenue churn from existing customers).
