What this Means
At SoftMouse understand firsthand that cost efficiency is a very big and important component of your role! Here are a few numbers to keep in mind:

  1. A single SoftMouse.NET premium user account is $350/year .
  2. If your current per diem rate is say $1.50/day (let's be conservative - ours was upwards of $1.80 for reference!), this means that for an average colony of ~300 cages , it costs ~$450/day to house them or ~$13,500/month or ~$162,000/year .
  3. With the visibility and quick decision making that you can achieve with SoftMouse, even if you save just one cage/year, this example scenario results in a cost saving of $540

In short: not only will SoftMouse pay for itself, it saves you additional money too!
