Return on investment

As with benefits, return on investment is largely in your hands. It varies from plant to plant and the way in which the information Quantum presents is acted upon. As a guideline we normally ask customers to estimate the savings to be made from just one or two percent annual waste material reduction, and the cost saving of just half an hour per machine per day. Then add to those savings the annual cost of manual data collection and the time spent entering that data into a computer and formatting reports.

In almost every case, using the above estimates we have come up with a return on investment of less than six months and very often three to four months.
