modules bias I'll more my NDRR look everything maybe guys. give questions, Great. really number Can tier seat you just the consumption at driven it good a uptick. improvement? us on add is towards second of maybe the here more congratulations, NDRR or looks A first


Yes. Jeff. Good question,

Jack Certainly deeply. are are of concepts pipeline and seeing into at a So certainly products introducing front solutions to sales other although not we adopting these consumption this play introducing major products the the from point into as organizations seeing good is are seat more a factor, alluded more we organization. funnel but solutions as

to revenue annual that also as our premier offerings success well. We have recurring contribute

and helped instituted we helped talked across too. price as before about and increases the certainly standard that products So we that is

those So expansions not really out is all one important. say factor seat of I although the would probably most of


scale scores and Tim's And in is there. has an NPS because at this renewal effort a right. a Customer I is comment improvement is out impact having to of are a delivering just culture that would this piece big rate. up success up and that been sat gross customer And up, Upland. dollar Look, at rates building add multi-year retention are in

and from to higher starting to to on you're going a base a that into account. So you're expand more happy be able customer

good point. a that's Yes,

billing contracts, sort then that these or to think and just for just quarter on one-year contracts with duration. are to you this up duration new one-year contracts degree customer signing instance. the contract respect Namely, to follow help typical of Just in what I'm with and to the of interested me understand and I more billing? a upfront What's billing? getting


is with past. Yes. The duration in we've consistent seen what the

hesitation there's customers So longer-term no for making commitments.

XX-month have roughly contracts today. Our duration

that think that solutions that both benefits the on the us with of help is renewals and touched one that Although Jack commitments. with we will

they also that it and longer-term a deals. sales force customers send think sure three-year If sell deals as we versus do year make and deal a incentive the well. more. get to we'll see longer-term so receive And our paid they to And deal we continue sell appropriate so sign one that
