How to Determine the ROI on your MIS Tool Investment
Management Information Systems are a business imperative for many fabricators who need to better organize their data and procedures. If you are considering purchasing a MIS, you probably expect to get more value out of your MIS tool than what you pay for it. Your return on investment (ROI) is an important consideration, but know that it will not always be measurable.
Here’s how to determine the ROI on your MIS tool investment
If you are considering an MIS, such as Tekla PowerFab, ask:
- How much will it cost?
- How much time will it save?
- How much will consumables cost?
- How much will I save compared to my current machinery?
- How will it increase my capabilities?
When it comes to ROI, we usually only consider a number figure. But, many of these questions don’t have numerical answers. ROI also needs to be considered in an intangible way, with non-monetary benefits being prioritized. We also need to consider that while you can’t always put a number value on ROI, specific benefits of your investment do provide cost savings.
