Honolulu, Hawaii – (The Hosting News) – February 24, 2009 – Web hosting provider, PHASE 2 International, has released its newest tool for companies considering the move to SaaS, with its Savings Calculator, available free of charge for use by IT managers and small business owners.
The PHASE 2 Savings Calculator takes user-supplied information and calculates the 2-year cost of purchasing and maintaining software and systems in-house versus using PHASE 2 subscription services. Initial research using the tool shows that the typical data center achieves an average savings of 80% by using PHASE 2 subscription software instead of purchasing software and maintaining the software and systems to run it in-house.
Kevin Doherty, CEO of PHASE 2 noted, ”We have been working hard to educate our customers about the substantial savings that can be realized through the use of SaaS. Now we have quantified the savings with our online calculator, and we have made it freely available to the public. This tool makes it easy for decision-makers to analyze the savings for their own unique environments. A real-world scenario calculated the 2-year total cost of an on-premise customer relationship management system for 75 employees at $192,000. The 2-year subscription cost with Phase 2 is $72,000, resulting in a $120,000 or 63% savings. Analysis of other scenarios results in as much as 80% savings.”
The new PHASE 2 Subscription Software Savings Calculator makes it easy to take that analysis the next step, too. Users can
