ROI Calculator for Component Content Management System (CCMS)

A component content management system (CCMS) is a big investment for your organization, so calculating the return on investment (ROI) for your Component Content Management (CCMS) purchase is an essential part of the budgeting process.

This calculator allows you to plug in your own numbers, but it guides you through some of the major cost savings you will realize with the investment. Use this calculator in combination with the CCMS Selection Matrix to create a complete picture of which CCMS is the right one for you.

Note: This calculator assumes the CCMS has collaborative review, translation management and XLIFF support, link management, and a faceted search (boolean-type search).


  1. In column B on the ROI Calculator tab, enter your values.
  2. Use the notes on the side for helpful hints.
  3. Review the calculated values in column C, including the total costs in the first year, in subsequent years, and your ROI at the bottom.
