Example 1: a small press
Publishes 30 books a year (average 200 pages each). Futureproofs costs £4200 annually. They were previously proofing on paper, mostly in mono.
Implementing Futureproofs will save them up to £3000 annually in direct costs (printing, couriers, freelancer time) and another £7000 in staff overhead, producing a 145% direct ROI.
In addition, they have greater insight into their projects, reduce their working capital and generate revenue faster by getting books to customers more reliably. Overall, they see an ROI of 290%.
Example 2: larger publisher
Publishes 100 books a year (average 240 pages each). Futureproofs costs £15k annually. They previously proofed in PDF using standard desktop software.
Implementing Futureproofs will save them £5400 in freelancer costs and £36k in staff overhead, producing a 165% direct ROI. In addition, their reduction in risk could save an additional £24k annually from lower
printing, shipping and disposal costs. Total ROI would be 320%.
The extra insight Futureproofs delivers also lets them monitor supplier performance more accurately and continually assess and review their processes, which will produce further indirect cost savings.
