61% of your day is lost in project information at a cost of $52,000.


According to a McKinsey Global Institute report, the average office worker spends nearly 24 and a half hours a week – or nearly 1300 hours a year – writing emails, searching for information and attempting to collaborate. Not really time well used. Or money well spent, is it?

Consider this – for someone with an hourly rate of $40, that’s $52,000 a year.
