Agistix, Inc. has come up with a new ROI (return-on-investment) calculator. The tool is intended to help the vendor's prospective customers quantify the benefits of using its on-demand software platform for automating logistics-management tasks. The calculator identifies estimated savings based on data about a company's supply-chain costs, gathered during the sales process. Factors taken into consideration include "hard" costs such as transportation spend and labor, as well as less-tangible expense such as estimated time spent contacting suppliers and carriers for shipment status. Customers get a free estimate of their savings and return based on specified uses of the Logistics Management Automation (LMA) platform. An Agistix business-development team works with customers to confirm that the information used is valid, then helps them to reach consensus over the estimated savings. The ROI calculator can also be used as a reference point when reviewing performance and expectations during quarterly business reviews, Agistix said.
