How We Measured ROI
We conducted an in-depth survey of companies who had been using Accompa for at least 12 months. 23 companies participated in our survey.
We asked them to outline the various benefits they’ve gained from using Accompa to manage their requirements, and worked with them to quantify these benefits. We aggregated this data and calculated the average Return-on-Investment (ROI). Here’s what we found…
On Average, Companies Using Accompa Achieved 17x ROI
The 23 companies that participated in our survey ranged in size all the way from Fortune-500 companies to growing startups – spanning various sectors of software, Internet, IT services, hardware, and other industries.
On average, they achieved an ROI of 17x in the first 12 months after implementing Accompa to automate their requirements management processes. Details of this calculation are included in the next section.
To put this into perspective, let us apply 17x to a few sample dollar amounts:
- Companies investing $5,000 in Accompa would achieve $85,000 worth of productivity gains in the first year.
- Companies investing $20,000 in Accompa would achieve $340,000 worth of productivity gains in the first year.
- Companies investing $100,000 in Accompa would achieve $1,700,000 worth of productivity gains in the first year.
Here’s what this survey result may mean to you and your company…
If your company is like these 23 companies, your investment in Accompa will very likely pay for itself several times over during the first 12 months. But there’s another important point to consider…
If you and your team use tools like Excel, Word or wikis to manage your requirements – you may be sacrificing significant productivity gains by continuing to use your current tools, don’t you think?
We request you to give this point careful consideration. Before you do that, here’s how these companies achieved 17x ROI…
Here Is How They Achieved 17x ROI
|28%||On average, Accompa users spend 28% of their time on requirements. This includes gathering, tracking, collaborating on, and managing requirements – as well as creating requirements documents.|
|$106,000||On average, the fully-loaded annual cost of an Accompa user (Annual salary + Bonus + Benefits + Overhead). This varies with geography, and is the highest in the western U.S.|
|16%||Companies estimated that, on average, Accompa saved them 16% of their time spent on managing requirements – compared to their old tools such as Excel, Word or wikis.|
|$4,749||Annual productivity gains per user from using Accompa, averaged across all 23 companies. Calculated by multiplying the three factors above.|
|$278||Annual investment per user for Accompa. This is the average annual fee per user, and includes volume discounts for companies with a large number of user licenses.|
|17x||Return-on-Investment (ROI) achieved by companies using Accompa, on average. Calculated using the above two factors ($4,749 divided by $278).|
In fact, many companies reported other benefits in addition to productivity gains. These included benefits such as eliminating missed requirements, sharing up-to-date requirements throughout the organization, making it easier for customers to input requirements, etc…
But we omitted these additional benefits so that we could: a) Uniformly aggregate the results across all 23 companies, and b) Present the ROI to you in the simplified, clear format shown above. As a result, 17x ROI is a conservative number – and only includes productivity gains. While that’s an extremely compelling ROI – the more important question is the following…
