Costs with CAD Centric
Costs associated with implementing a CAD Centric solution include products, maintenance, and professional services. Depending on the implementation, various aspects of each of these will be required and are considered in the initial and ongoing costs of this project.
The project is expected to yield a cumulative benefit of $1,023,750 over the three-year analysis period, with a year 1 benefit of $341,250.
The project is expected to yield an ROI of 240%, an IRR of 134% and a payback period of 7 months.
Although there are no dollar values assigned for intangible benefits, CAD Centric believes it important to list these benefits.
With the CAD data available on the desktop of each computer, more information will be viewed. Employees will not have to wait to view CAD information because of time restraints on the engineering department or because document control is on the other side of the building.
Manipulation is intuitive and uses standard nomenclature for pans, zooms and view orientation. Users immediately feel comfortable and familiar with the application, making it appealing to more people, shortening the learning curve, and reducing training.
Users have access to many of the entity and attribute information on the drawing, allowing them to access and directly obtain detailed information from the drawing files.
