This Global Leader Made A Whopping 271 pc ROI After Moving To A Unified Cloud Platform
Purolite Corporation, a US-based global leader in resin separation, purification, and extraction technology, has seen substantial gains both in terms of costs and productivity by moving away from its legacy systems to a unified cloud platform.
A case study by Nucleus Research shows that the privately-held company saved over 800 administrative hours per year by eliminating manual reporting while their sales team increased productivity by 5 to 10 percent on average with shortened sales cycles.
In 2017, the privately-held company with offices in 40 countries and over 1,000 employees, wanted to modernize its operations. As with many fast-growing enterprises , Purolite found it cumbersome to manage operations with its disparate legacy applications that weren't scalable and didn't support its audit requirements.
The company considered building an in-house solution that would have cost $75,000 over three years and required additional information technology (IT) staff that would have added to the recurring expenses.
To save on both cost and time, Purolite began looking at unified cloud platform vendors who could deliver its business, research, and reporting needs. The idea was to find a way to scale productivity while avoiding self-build expenses, retiring its legacy systems, and increasing productivity while eliminating inefficient workarounds.
Zoho One to the fore
Purolite has been using Zoho CRM since 2013. After careful consideration of various options the company decided to deploy Zoho One, Zoho's comprehensive platform.
Key reasons cited for choosing Zoho One.
▪ Single integrated suite with 45+ apps for business sales, CRM, HR, reporting, and auditing
▪ Simple pricing model with the advantage of not being tethered to any multi-year contract or usage restrictions like other vendors.
▪ A scalable solution that can keep up with Purolite's steady but rapid growth.
Benefits of making the switch
Purolite has already reaped both direct and indirect benefits of making the switch to Zoho One's unified platform.
The company saved an average of $100,000 US-dollars every year by eliminating legacy software and hardware. It also avoided the cost of developing its own suite of solution and associated costs of running it.
After taking into account the capital costs associated with the rollout of the new system, depreciation value, and other expenses, Nucleus Research found that Purolite achieved a whopping ROI of 271% ROI with a payback period of only four months.
With the deployment of the Zoho One platform, Purolite has been able to connect its Research and Development (R&D) with data, sales teams, and business processes across the company.
