The Permessa ROI calculator is ideal for enterprises needing to find ways to cut costs in their messaging environment

As enterprises look for ways to reduce IT costs in the current economic downturn, Permessa Corporation is introducing at Lotusphere 2009 a free online ROI (Return on Investment) calculator that lets enterprises quantify the cost-savings benefits offered by IBM Lotus Notes and Domino when used with Permessa's messaging management software. Developed by Wintergreen Research and Permessa, the tool accurately calculates messaging storage and employee productivity savings enterprises would realize by deploying Permessa Email Control!.

"The Permessa ROI calculator is ideal for enterprises needing to find ways to cut costs in their messaging environment," said Susan Eustis, President and CEO of Wintergreen Research, a leader in analysis and forecasting in advanced computer technology markets. "It is the first tool to take a comprehensive look at all of the costs required to operate Lotus Notes and Domino on an enterprise-wide basis. Most users can start easily by answering a few questions. The calculator then allows the user to fine-tune details to match their particular enterprise-wide environment."

Permessa Email Control!, when used with IBM Lotus Domino, can implement the cost savings found in the ROI calculator by optimizing the environment and by automatically applying and enforcing email policies on a global scale. It also generates detailed, easy-to-read reports and monitors messaging activity for performance and usage issues. To determine messaging ROI, the Permessa ROI calculator looks at the savings an organization can expect to realize through the enforcement of corporate email policies. The easy-to-use tool provides five input fields that can be tailored to include real customer data for a completely customized analysis.

"Today's cost-conscious business environment is driving companies to look closely at the ROI of every IT dollar spent," said Stefan Mehlhorn, CEO of Permessa Corporation. "The Permessa ROI calculator is built on 15 years of experience and based on actual customer data that Permessa continuously collects and analyzes. It provides a highly accurate estimate of savings companies can expect to realize in their IBM Lotus Domino environment with Permessa Email Control!. In some cases, we have seen savings as high as 40%. The detailed analysis gives IT credibility with senior management by demonstrating clear financial value to the company's bottom line."

The Permessa ROI Tool calculates savings in two areas:

  •     IT storage resource savings: This includes all costs associated with storing and archiving messaging activity.
  •     Productivity savings: This number is calculated by looking at the impact enforceable email policies have on user behavior.

The Permessa ROI calculator is available immediately. The Quick ROI Calculator may be found at: A more Detailed ROI Calculator with more customization options will be made available to those who complete the Quick ROI Calculator.
