Flash Research Assignment 4: WordPress
Our company should implement the WordPress Platform. WordPress is the ability to reduce costs by headcount reduction. With the implementation of this technology, our company will see an net benefit of $2.451 Million.
The key benefit of this technology is its ability to increase efficiency. This technology comes from the usage of plug-ins, which are free or low-cost. With an increase in efficiency, we will be able to have a reduction in headcount. When we implement this technology, our personnel who work with WordPress, we will have a realized headcount reduction of 7 developers.
The headcount reduction from this cost avoidance strategy results the company with three-year benefits of $2.625 Million. Hardware, software, maintenance and training/productivity losses comprise the three-year costs of $174 thousand. We will realize a three-year net benefit of $2.451 Million.
