This 'ROI Calculator' is a tool designed to help organizations better understand the potential productivity gains that can be expected from a deployment of the Sinequa Enterprise Search platform. The calculated gains are based on the outlined principles as follows:
The estimated Return On Investment is based on market data from independent research studies carried out by IDC, McKinsey, Interact Source, Gartner and Microsoft combined with Sinequa’s own real-world experiences - based on customer feedback. The main parameters taken into account are:
- The size and complexity of an organization’s data assets
- The number of Information Workers, i.e. employees who create, manage, share, receive and use information in the course of their daily work
- The amount of effort an organization is willing to invest in its user adoption plan.
This 'ROI Calculator' only shows a segment of the value that can be obtained with Sinequa. It conveys the value of having a powerful Enterprise Search tool which connects people to corporate content. The ROI is therefore based on enhancing the productivity of employees by breaking down internal data silos and enabling access to an organization’s entire information landscape.
The Sinequa platform can generate additional value to an organization with business-specific insight apps. In that context, the ROI will not only be based on productivity gains but will also lead to additional benefits related to revenue generation, cost optimization and compliance - just to name a few.
