Wasted Email Cost Calculator

January 7, 2024 | 1 minute read

Email is dead.

Email is an inefficient, outdated, and often completely ignored form of communication within care delivery and frontline teams. The average senior care organization is likely wasting loads of money on never-used email accounts.

How much?

We created this calculator to help you find out.

And yes, we did the research.

Long live email?

Of course, email is still the primary communication tool for business, and we don’t see that changing any time soon, but that’s typically referring to management, not everyone in an organization.

In our research, and in speaking with senior care providers of all sizes across North America, the amount of money wasted on email accounts is shocking.

For most providers, frontline care delivery staff (PSWs or CNAs) represent up to 20% of their workforce, and on average, very few of them ever use the email account created for them.

For some providers, only half of their full-time nursing staff use their provided email addresses.

In total, this can add up to between 20-30% of paid email accounts never being used. And at $7-$18 per email account per month, that quickly adds up to thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars a year in wasted cost.

This calculator will help you see where you could be either a) saving thousands of dollars per year, or b) where you could re-allocate those dollars to adopt a better communication platform (Niuz) that does so much more than email ever could.
