Model Summary

Do you have a service based business model? For example : Software services, Hotel, Spa etc. 

For Instance, This revenue model is the same as the Unit Sales revenue model, Just the main difference is service based model doesn’t include inventory tracking. if you are projecting 100 services sold per month, that means you are also forecasting 100 sales per month (other revenue models work differently, so please refer to the appropriate model for additional details).

Keep in mind that how you define a 'unit' service sales depends on what you sell.
