The global leader in Nanomanufacturing Technology solutions realizes an ROI between 200 and 300% with OpenText Report & Output Management.

When I first calculated the cost justification, we anticipated we would save about $75,000 per year. After implementation, the actual cost savings are closer to $300,000 per year.

Challenge

Value
