Thursday afternoon we held the fourth and final session of the 2010 Cincom Control User Summit.
This session featured a presentation from Mike Gauthier on calculating ROI on moving to Cincom Control.
Mike’s talk covered the calculation of current costs associated with hardware, software, people and processes as well as the costs associated with new system. Particular emphasis was given to the process used to determine gains delivered in specific process improvements.
Mike explained that, “Process improvement is at the heart of determining the green dollar return delivered by Control.”
He went on to explain, “These returns can be dramatic and quick. In many cases the system is paying for itself in just a few months.”
Mike cited several “real world” examples in his talk. These included people making an initial investment in Cincom technology as well as companies moving from older releases of Control to the 2010 release.
This was the first time Cincom has used a virtual format for the user summit. Attendees were asked to submit comments, critiques and suggestions.
