Action plan

Calculating the ROI from implementing new technology

High effort

Medium impact

The first data point you get about a new technology is often the cost of a tool – and that can be intimidating. What’s less clear is the return on that investment (ROI). Implementing technology can make a business more profitable by saving employees’ time and even drive revenue by introducing new services or allowing your team to work more efficiently.

How will I know if my action plan is working?

Confidence to move forward

When you’ve completed your business case you can decide whether buying software is the best way to achieve this goal

Why this metric?

While you might have thought, or been told, that your business needs to make better use of technology, if the numbers don't add up then it doesn't make sense to move forward with what could be quite a costly process.

How do I use this going forward?

Working out your projected cost savings by using a new technology, coupled with expected upfront and ongoing costs, will steer you in the right direction when it comes to choice of product and employee uptake.
