Investing in Collaboration

This ROI calculator illustrates the savings that a team could see by adopting Collaborator as their tool for peer code review. We calculated these numbers using data provided by our customers, as well as industry benchmarks. For example, our studies show that when using Collaborator, developers find a bug or defect every 12.5 minutes on average. For most teams, that means less time per review to find the same number of defects. Additionally, users find more defects early on, reducing the amount that move to QA and production where the cost to fix is higher. The increase in defect identification varies, from 18% to 100%. For this calculator, we set the default to 30%.

It’s very powerful to have Collaborator create a documentation package that documents reviews with a great level of detail structured in a way to facilitate audits and integrate with other project documents. We also benefit from a 70% reduction in our code review and test review timeline.
