Wind Turbine Repair Techs Use iPod Touches from Precarious Perches – CIO.com

Talk about a phenomenal ROI from going mobile!

“Charanjiva afterwards estimated that iPod usage has cut six to eight hours of work per technician every week since the program was implemented about a year ago.”

Here’s a back-of-the-envelope ROI calculation:

  • Cost: $500/iPad. Assume each lasts 2 years.
  • Savings: Figure $50/hr./employee as loaded cost. Assume 6 hours/week of productivity savings = $300/week. This equates to $15,000/year or $30,000 over 2 years in cost savings or productivity gains.
  • ROI: $30,000 savings/$500 costs = 6,000%

Even if it’s only half of that, the ROI is off the charts.
