Cashflow and Finance
Cashflow and Finance
Based on what other organisations have told us, we offer the following example:
A Project Manager should save 2 – 3 days per month as a minimum.
Assuming a gross staff cost of £35,000 p.a. and 2.5 days per month the saving is:-
12 months*2.5 days p.m./52 weeks*5 days p. w. = 12% saving in staff time, or £4,200 p.a.
Finance should save c. 1 – 2 days per month and other departments collectively a minimum of 1 day per month. Total other savings per month also 2.5 days, or £4,200 p.a.
Total Saving c. £8,400.
Assume a supply cost of £11,000 + VAT. (Enterprise version with 5 users).
This means that Sequel should pay for itself in under 18 months.
If you add to this the qualitative improvements and additional benefits which Sequel brings, it should make the business case easy to justify.
We would be happy to discuss the specific impact of Sequel on the organisation to assist it in making its own business case.
