PlugTail® Cost-Savings Calculator

Calculate your savings with PlugTail®.

Use our quick calculator to find your labor and cost-savings. Simply enter your values in the calculator below. 

 

To get started, hit reset. The conventional device is automatically set at 5362 against the comparable PlugTail® device, PT5362.


In the top section:

  • Enter your labor rate per hour to install a conventional device. 

  • Enter the number of devices you can install per hour.

  • Enter the cost of each conventional device.

  • Enter the number of devices you need to install for your project.


In the bottom section:

  • Enter the labor rate per hour to install a PlugTail® device. Note that you can use lower paid employees at trim out because it’s easy enough for an apprentice.

  • Enter the number of PlugTail® devices you can install per hour. To calculate this, PlugTail® installs at least 3-1 vs. a conventional device. Therefore, for every one conventional device that you can install, multiply it by three for the number of PlugTail® devices you can install. 

  • Enter the cost of each PlugTail® device. Note that the cost of each tail is $1.00, but you can also reach out to your sales representative for specific project pricing.


Now hit calculate. You’ll see the total cost savings in yellow and the total time savings in red. If you’d like, you can select the option to print a copy.
