      ROI calculation, from a newsagent:

      1.       Cost of XchangeIT Link = $490 a year

      2.       Time saved (according to current users) = 4 hours a week = 208 hours a year

      3.       208 hours X wage of $18.29 an hour = $3,804.32 (NOTE: Current National Minimum Wage = approx. $18.29)

      4.       $3,804.32 minus $490 = $3,314.32 – over 500% positive ROI. Sub-total 1.

      5.       Accuracy = you can put your own value on it – add it to the above number as Sub-total 2.

      6.       Quicker turnaround time for your Cash Flow via credits = you can put your own value on it – add it to the above number as Sub-total 3.

      7.       Add the three sub-totals for a comprehensive ROI Total.
