The Costs of Empty Software Support Seats
Windchill System Administration is critical. But finding candidates…?
It’s a Jungle out there!
Filling an empty Windchill System Administration seat is no easy trick. Less than 3.1% unemployment means good help is hard to find. When you do find the right talent, filling the seat is expensive. It’s a seller’s market, so keeping the seat filled is no certainty. But not filling it is not an option. Without that seat product development support and performance is suffering. Quality is suffering. Your budget is suffering. Also, Stakeholders are suffering. Plus your customers are suffering.
And your system is becoming a Dinosaur.
We’ve referenced studies from MIT, The Society for Human Resource Management, US News, Inc. Magazine, and Glassdoor to put some numbers up. The longer a system goes unmanaged, the more it costs. Take a look:
|Column 0||Column 1||Column 2||Column 3||Column 4||Column 5|
|Cost Driver||Multiplier||Total Cost||Cost Driver||Multiplier||Total Cost|
|Industrywide Unemployment Rate||3.1%||Hard to hire & retain quality candidates||Your Company’s Unemployment Rate||0%||No HC to manage:|

That’s a lot of money!
