We created the Cost Savings Estimator to help you estimate the cost benefits of using the LOGitEASY eForm for electronic field logging data collection versus using a paper-based field logging process as a precursor to creating logs. Since the LOGitEASY eForm is web-based software and available for use on a pay-as-you-go basis, you can evaluate its cost effectiveness on a project-by-project basis before using it on a given project. For each project, simply enter the number of borings for which you will be preparing logs, and then enter your hourly rates and estimated hours for each step of the process listed. For the hours that are listed in the LOGitEASY column and associated with electronically-recorded field data, we have included Assumptions on the right. Besides illustrating the potential cost savings, the Cost Savings Estimator also illustrates how transparent the cost of software associated with field mobility can be when this software is priced on a per-use basis versus a one-time license or ongoing per-seat fee basis.
