Contatta Infographic Reveals Staggering Cost of Business Email

Press release from the issuing company

Email Costs North American Businesses Nearly $2 Trillion Annually

PHOENIX, AZ - Contatta™, the visionary new company co-founded by Pat Sullivan of ACT! and SalesLogix acclaim, today released an infographic highlighting how North American businesses pay employees to simply read and write email at a cost of nearly $2 trillion annually.

The infographic reveals just how inefficient and time-consuming business email has become over the last 20 years, using statistics from the US Bureau of Labor, McKinsey Global Institute and the Radicati Group to showcase the ineffectiveness of the world's most popular business tool, including:

  • On average, workers spend 13 hours of their workweek reading and answering email -- that's an estimated 637 hours annually.
  • Based on the median professional wage of $23 per hour, businesses pay over $15K per employee to use email ineffectively.
  • Collectively, employees spend nearly 75 billion hours in email, costing businesses nearly $2 trillion in salaries -- that's 14x the combined wealth of Bill Gates, Oprah and Warren Buffett.

Email hasn't changed in twenty years. The infographic was designed by the team at Contatta to put into perspective how much time and money businesses spend in email every day. Only Contatta's collaborative email combines business email with collaborative workspaces, shared contacts, tasks, and files. The end result is workers spend less time in their inbox and more time working together on things that grow their businesses.
