Two Line OfieREQUIRED: The Advanced ROI Module is required to track the Impact of Time Savings People. Reach out to your Customer Success Manager to enable this Module for your organization.

What is a Time Savings Person?

Suppose one of your employees comes up with an idea that saves them 5 hours a month. That’s great, but wouldn’t it be even better to know how much money that time was worth? These soft savings can be calculated based on a list of your employees—your Time Savings People—and the estimated hourly rate of each position.

With this information, when someone resolves an Item with a Time Savings impact, you know not only how much time was saved, but how much money was saved as well.
