Startup Software as as Service (SaaS) companies can gather statistics about their growth, but they don't always know how to extrapolate useful or predictive information about it and don't have a good way to compare those stats with other successful startups to see if they are on the right track. New Breed Marketing asked me to develop an app that would allow them to build a series of "calculators," allowing SaaS companies to put in their metrics, and view calculations of their seccess, mapped against average trends in the SaaS industry.
I build a lightweight "CMS" allowing New Breed admins to build as many pages and calculators as they liked. Admins could design the equations for the calculator in a simple editor, setting variables and defining and equation using those variables. In the public facing interface, the calculations would be run in real-time, updating as the user typed.
