How remote support Return On Investment is calculated

To determine the ROI of remote support with IXON, we'll first need to calculate the costs for an average on-site service visit.

After that, it's as simple as multiplying the number of support trips with the cost of on-site support — and you'll know which savings can be realised on service trips with our industrial remote access product, IXON Cloud.

The cost of investment

It is clear that the solution is cost-efficient, based on the money saved for support trips (and efficiency gained) by supporting industrial machines remotely. It pays for itself after just one or two remote maintenances per machine.

In the Remote Access ROI Calculator below you can fill in the hours spent travelling, your hourly rate and the number of kilometres to the support location to calculate the service costs of a single support trip.

We will calculate the ROI of IXON's remote access solution based on the average hardware price and the time spent installing and configuring the solution. The result shows after how many remote maintenance services you will experience your Return On Investment.
