EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A commissioned Total Economic Impact™ study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Autotask uses its methodology to determine that Autotask's unified IT business management platform delivers value to technology service providers. Forrester interviewed two Autotask customers who had previously relied on legacy RMM integrations and who both unified operations and service delivery with Autotask Endpoint Management (AEM) at the device, data, invoice and reporting level. From the information provided in the interviews, Forrester utilized its Total Economic Impact (TEI) framework for a 30-user organization that shows that the investment in Autotask Unified Platform may be recouped in less than 4 months and result in a 198% ROI. The results were consistent for study participants of varying sizes and geographies. Organizations using Autotask Unified Platform also noted:Increased productivity of billable employees by an average of 1 hour per technician, per dayReduced cost of customer turnover of 12% Improved SLA average response times by 28% The study participants realized additional performance results such as increased customer satisfaction that contributed to customer retention; these benefits are expected to have a further impact on ROI results. "Autotask's 100% cloud platform unifies the PSA and RMM data at the device, ticket and invoice level to help TSPs prioritize customer requests, meet SLAs, and optimize delivery. This is groundbreaking because it means accessing complete device data from the PSA alone, as well as more intelligent alert handling and improved ability for incidents to self-heal. 'Click-to-device' capability from the dashboard and ticket enables quicker remote takeover and resolution saving minutes per incident that add up to substantial productivity gains," said Patrick Burns, Vice President, Product Management, Autotask. "The study findings quantify the significant impact unification can have on business operations and proves that investing in our unified platform can deliver high-value return that can accelerate growth and profitability and enhance the customer experience dramatically."
