Return On Investment (ROI)

As with any purchase you may be considering, the key is to calculate the time it will take to achieve payback on investment.  Ideally, you will also want to analyze impact over the longer term life of the investment, both in terms of year-over-year savings and/or the effect this investment will have in terms of changes to the management of your operation. IntegrisPro is the calibre of investment that can have both a rapid payback (sometimes in as little as the first year) in addition to having a dramatic impact on the management of your operation, in terms of how you design and staff your storage facility, as well as how you build your grain marketing plan.

Following are the main areas where an IntegrisPro investment can help to improve your bottom line:

  • Market gains through...
    • Moisture control
    • Quality optimization and zero-tolerance on spoilage
    • Carry with confidence to get the maximum return from the market
  • Savings through...
    • Electrical savings (up to 80% relative to "conventional" fan operation)
    • Fumigation savings
    • Labor savings

To understand how the IntegrisPro system can be used to achieve specific value-added targets, OPI-integris offers a very powerful planning tool called Integris ProModel. With an understanding of your site-specific parameters, such as location, grain type and target objectives, we can run ProModel to assess what can be achieved with the IntegrisPro system-A great tool for helping to design and manage your storage system.

Although we cannot assess the full range of gains without first running ProModel, we are including the following assessment tool to evaluate ROI based on moisture control alone. The calculator starts with an estimation of the one-time investment cost for an IntegrisPro system, including all hardware, software and the PC-based controller. This price is then expressed in terms of cents per bushel of cents per metric tonne, as reference to the one-time cost relative to grain prices. Based on your assessment of average grain price and potential moisture gain, it then calculates ROI-basically the length of time to achieve payback.
