How to Calculate Profit per User in Salesforce

Making the most of your Salesforce data

What is Profit per User?

Profit per user is the amount of profit your company makes off of each of its customers.

Profit per user is calculated by dividing your total profit by the number of customers you have.

For example, if your company has 100 customers and made $100,000 in profit, your profit per user is $1000.

Profit per user is a great way to determine how much your company is making off of each of its customers. It's also a great way to determine how much each customer is worth to your company.

If your company has a high profit per user, it's a good indication that your company is doing well and has happy customers.
