Why Usage-based Pricing is a reliable way to hit high Net Revenue Retention

There seems to be an evident intimate relationship between net revenue retention (NRR) and usage-based pricing (UBP). Companies that employ usage-based pricing (UBP) clearly are known to have a better Net Revenue Retention (NRR) performance, over those that did not.
