TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 05, 2018 — ConnectWise, a software company that connects technology teams to the solutions, services and resources necessary for success, announced today that it commissioned Forrester Consulting, an internationally recognized, independent research firm, to analyze the total economic impact (TEI) of the ConnectWise platform.
When it comes to technology, people want to know quickly if the investment is worth the cost and time to implement. The study, The Total Economic Impact™ Of The ConnectWise Platform, which quantified the benefits of using the ConnectWise platform, allows partners to see their potential return on investment. A composite organization based on interviewed customers saw a three-year 194 percent return on investment with payback within three months of implementing the ConnectWise platform. There is an expected result of $2.4 million in net present value savings over three years, thanks to the automation increasing efficiency and decreasing the cost of service. The case study quantifies the dramatic impact adopting the ConnectWise platform can provide, with the overall savings outweighing the total economic costs the investment delivers.
“ConnectWise prioritizes its customers’ needs and commissioned the study to help organizations and our partners better understand the benefits to our differentiated approach,” said Craig Fulton, Chief Product Officer for ConnectWise. “We wanted an external group, which we trusted, to provide insight on the financial benefits that our partners can expect to see when they adopt the ConnectWise platform. Forrester has developed a methodology that helps us demonstrate the tangible value of IT software initiatives to both senior management and key stakeholders.”
