HumanConcepts launches online savings calculator

HumanConcepts, the California-headquartered developer of software for workforce modeling, promises companies that purchase its OrgPlus product family tangible benefits from information-rich organizational charts. On its Web site, HumanConcepts now provides an online savings calculator that enables HR managers and decision makers to calculate the expected return on investment (ROI) of automatic chart creation with just a few mouse clicks.

The number of employees and their positions can be keyed into the savings calculator, as can employees’ hourly wages. What’s more, annual personnel development can be entered as a percentage – although the calculator assumes that this figure will always be positive. Once all data has been entered, the savings calculator works out how much time and money could be saved by deploying OrgPlus from HumanConcepts. The savings calculator works in euros and pounds sterling, but has no multilingual capabilities.
