New Online Calculator Helps Companies Assess ROI of Digital Asset Management Software

Today Extensis announced the release of an online-based Digital Asset Management (DAM) ROI Calculator, a new tool that allows customers to quickly identify the potential cost savings associated with implementing DAM software.

Organizations amassing thousands to millions of digital assets face a growing challenge in efficiently managing these files, losing on average $62,000 a year*. Digital asset management solutions such as Extensis Portfolio help organizations drive down operational costs by providing a system to efficiently organize, find, repurpose and archive rich media files. In turn, companies can regain upwards of $250,000 over a five year period.

“Like any other business investment, careful evaluation of the return on investment is a key step in the financial justification for purchasing a DAM solution,” said Toby Martin, Vice President of Development & Strategy at Extensis. “Using the DAM ROI calculator, companies can get a clear picture of the impact DAM can make on the bottom line.”

The Extensis DAM ROI Calculator is fully customizable, allowing users to tailor input specific to their organizational factors (such as number of assets, asset users, IT overhead, lost productive time, etc.). The calculator generates a customized report that outlines projected ROI for the first year and over a five year span.
