ROI for your WET subscription

Need a business case to prove the return on investment for your WET subscription? 
Is harvesting, analysis and presentation of this kind of insight a key part of your job? 
Do you need the information to inform planning and executive decison making?


Business decisions made on reactive demands for data and insight are usually rushed, inaccurate and potentially misguided. 


Don't worry - we can help.

We based our calculations on resourcing a permanent graduate research assistant in the UK, benchmarked by Payscale for one day a week (0.2 FTE). 


While a research assistant cannot be expected to bring the depth of knowledge, understanding and analysis that the WET does, even this modest benchmarking demonstrates the WET's value for money.
