Impact calculator

Evaluate the efficiency of your change initiative

The Impact Calculator can be used to demonstrate the impact of a process redesign or system implementation by quantifying the tangible benefits or efficiency gains that can be derived from it:

  • identifying and recording the efficiency savings and costs of a process redesign
  • determine if and when a return on investment (ROI) is made
  • identify and measure as many benefits as you wish
  • quantifying efficiency savings in monetary and non-monetary terms
