Use this calculation to see how much this hidden cost is negatively impacting your bottom line.
(Number of users with dated machines) x (0.25 hours per day of wasted time) x (260 working days per year) X (Average hourly salary)
Put another way, for an employee making $40,000 per year, you’re wasting about $1300 per year on their salary. Add in benefits, you’re looking at about $1700 per year. A new PC for your employee will pay for itself in less than a year just taking into account this wasted time, not yet counting the other benefits.
