New tool: How much time (and money) does ASAP Utilities save you?

These days, with all the economical issues, it is more then ever important to see where you can save money.
You have probably already heard from others or experienced yourself that ASAP Utilities can save you a lot of time with your work in Excel. But how much time (and money) does it actually save you in time?

Starting from version 4.5, ASAP Utilities keeps a history on your computer of which tools you use and how often you use them. Recently we have estimated for every tool in ASAP Utilities how much time it saves the average Excel user on average in seconds. With that extra information we have built a new tool to give you a clear understanding of the tools you use and the approximate time saved by ASAP Utilities.
The utility is in the menu at: ASAP Utilities Options Ā» Show the time that ASAP Utilities has saved you

Show the time that ASAP Utilities has saved you

Report: Time saved by using ASAP Utilities

The report shows you the following information:

  • how many days you have been actively using ASAP Utilities
  • which tools you have used
  • how many times you have used the tools
  • how much time each tool saves on average in seconds
  • the total time in minutes that each tool has approximately saved you
  • the total time in hours that ASAP Utilities has saved you.

You can also enter your hourly rate to calculate the money saved. That will also help to calculate the ROI (return on investment) on ASAP Utilities.

(Besides time, ASAP Utilities also saves a lot of struggling and annoyance in Excel but we cannot express that in time or money.)

Request for feedback

We have estimated the time saved. I've already heard from a few people that we have been a little low when we made the estimates and some tools save a lot more time but we'd like to hear your opinion on this too!

Please give your feedback by installing the pre-release, running this new utility and tell me what you think of the estimated saved time (per tool or in total) in your case. Thank you!

  1. Hi Bastien,

    In many one might require to uninstall and reinstall ASAP. But that also terminates the trail created for above purpose i.e., report showing the time saved. That report should be preserved even in case of complete uninstall too.

  2. Hello Kanwaljit,

    I believe that uninstalling a program should always remove everything from the program to keep a user's computer clean. In case of trouble with ASAP Utilities, such as when you don't see it in the menu, you don't have to uninstall ASAP Utilities first, just run the setup again.

    Kind regards,

    In extreme case of complete uninstallation the user may be prompted with a choice to save / discard the data sheet.
