Unfavorable or unwanted vendor contract renewals cost companies thousands of dollars each year. Contract date alerts make it easy to stay on top of every contract.

How Does the ROI Calculator Work?

The ROI calculator works by entering a few key details and measuring those against some industry averages, as well as the cost of our software, in order to provide you with an estimated ROI, how much time and money you could save every year, and an estimated payback period.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • The number of active contracts your business is currently holding, including contracts that may be expiring soon or automatically renewing.
  • The number of people who are managing contracts and the number of people (inside or outside of your organization) who regularly interact with contracts
  • A general sense of how much time is spent managing contracts
  • The estimated annual value of the contracts 

When you’ve got that info, all you need to do is enter it into the fields above, and boom, you’ll have a forecast showing you an estimate of the software’s ROI, how much time and money it’ll save you, and how many days it’ll take to make that money back. 

Our Methodology

In order to create this calculator, we compiled salary data for in-house lawyers and supporting legal staff from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and We also used pricing and efficiency gains for ContractSafe's own software.
