How are these estimates derived?

The projections in the profit predictor for professional services are based on Service Performance Insight's 2012 Professional Services Maturity™ Benchmark study.

Over the last five years, www.SPIresearch.com has surveyed more than 900 professional services firms in 30 countries. The 2012 benchmark measures the performance of 216 firms and quantifies the average improvement in their business metrics when they move to an integrated business management solution such as SAP Business ByDesign.

In the benchmark, the firms are classified by maturity from Level 1 to Level 5 based on several factors including the presence or lack of an integrated business management system.

The profit predictor tool assumes companies are starting at "Level 1 maturity" and shows the potential financial benefits of moving to "Level 5". SPIresearch has observed that companies generally are able to move up one maturity level per year.

Though SPIresearch cited a number of benefits of implementing an integrated system, they consider the top two to be enhanced visibility across all aspects of the firm and integrated business processes which help firms sell and deliver work more effectively.
