How Does Sonexis Achieve a Rapid ROI?
At Sonexis, it is our goal for every bridge customer to deliver a rapid return on investment (ROI), typically in less than 12 months.
When we are approached by an organization to provide a complimentary ROI analysis, we request numerous pieces of information that range from existing infrastructure, conferencing usage types, patterns and of course, their current service provider monthly minutes and monthly spend. A common concern for interested organizations is that an on-premises or managed hosted bridge can cause data bandwidth constraints or be too cumbersome to maintain and administer. However, with a quick demonstration and discussion, we assure customers that Sonexis has engineered a solution that is easy to maintain and allows for continual cost-savings. Thousands of organizations have utilized the ConferenceManager over the years and recognize it’s ease of use and effectiveness.
ROI as fast as 1-2-3
- What is your current monthly minutes or spend with your conferencing service provider?
- Do you require functionality for Audio, Web and Video conferencing, or some combination?
- What is your percentage of on-network (internal) traffic that utilizes the external service today?
1.) Minutes Used and Dollars Spent
One of the initial questions we ask during a ROI analysis is how many conferencing minutes are being done today using the external service provider? Equally important, is determining what the current dollar spend is for those minutes with the external service provider. With that information in hand, we run the data through industry-based calculations to determine how much capacity is needed with a conference bridge.
The next factor in determining an initial payback period is to learn which types of conferencing are occurring today. With Sonexis, our turnkey solution has integrated functionality for Audio, Web and Video conferencing that can be enabled with a simple software license key. Once we know which types of conferencing are required, we incorporate that information with the current dollars spend information from question one above, to determine an estimated payback period.
3.) On-network vs. Off-network
One of the last questions we ask is actually one of the most important factors in determining where the new bridge should reside. As a rule of thumb, if an organization has at least 50% of their current conferencing usage occurring with users who are internal to their network, then there is significant cost-savings by setting up the bridge on their premises. This option allows users accessing the bridge internally to simply dial by extension, hereby avoiding any dial out access charges with their Telco provider. On the flip side, if an organization has more than 50% of their traffic occurring with users outside of their network, then a managed hosted environment for the bridge will help alleviate Telco costs. Either way, significant savings can be realized, resulting in immediate cash flow benefits.
