In the 10-Q report, Smartsheet disclosed its key business metrics, revealing that its annualized recurring revenue (ARR) reached $1.056 billion as of April 30, 2024, compared to $886 million in the previous year. The company also reported an average ARR per domain-based customer of $9,906, indicating an increase from $8,520 in the prior year. Additionally, Smartsheet noted a dollar-based net retention rate for all customers of 114% for the trailing 12 months, showing a slight decrease from 123% in the previous period.
