Service providers can utilize the CloudBlue commerce platform to grow their cloud business at a lower cost than they could by developing their own solution. According to a recent Total Economic Impact (TEI) study by Forrester, CloudBlue customers can expect a favorable ROI of 127% with total benefits of $10.8 million from cost savings and increased revenues over three years.
$6M Net Present Value
Payback < 3 months
$0 Spent on Hardware, Database, OS License, Maintenance
You can quickly release new products and services to your customers while increasing your time to revenue with CloudBlue. This capability was calculated to have a present value (PV) of $3.1 million over three years while cutting out 4 months in an organization’s time-to-market.
Greater go-to-market savings
You can receive a broad scope of advisory, professional, managed, and monetization services that accelerate your go-to-market timeline. An organization that takes advantage of these services can potentially see a three-year PV of $2.2 million rather than spending more than 500k to do it themselves.
Reduce customer churn
You can grow and retain customers, reducing churn, through the features and functionality of the CloudBlue platform. The composite organization used in the study saw a 5% reduction in customer turn in Year 1, 7% in Year 2, and 9% in Year 3, resulting in a three-year risk-adjusted total PV of $3.5 million.
Retain more of your resources
You can save valuable resources by leveraging the CloudBlue Connect Module and Back-Office API Integrations. This saved organizations from adding 2.5 to 5 FTE developers. In addition to other saving segments, the study calculated the total savings amounted to a three-year PV of $2 million.
