How Typequick saves you money

With more time being spent communicating electronically and working at a computer on or off-site significant savings in cost and time can be achieved by ensuring that employees have a measurable competency in keyboarding. The potential cost savings and increases in productivity by improving keyboard skills are enormous.

Typequick saves you moneyFor example, an employee who types (with two fingers using the 'hunt and peck' method) at a speed of 20 words per minute could double their productivity at the keyboard by learning to touchtype at a speed of 40 words per minute. Given that say employees on average spend 3 hours a day at the keyboard and work 46 weeks a year at an hourly rate of say $25, the cost saving is as follows:

  • 3 hrs day / 2 = 1.5 hrs day
  • 1.5 hrs day x 5 days = 7.5 hours a week.
  • 7.5 hours x 46 weeks = 345 hours per year.
  • 345 hours x $25 per hour = $8625.00 per year.

Or, in terms of time saved, 345 hours is equivalent to over 43 8-hour days. That's over 8 working weeks per year. Multiply these figures by the number of employees you have and the potential cost savings are astonishing.
