Should CEO Wise accept Mail.com’s offer?The Mail.com option will cost $54.50 per month per mailbox which is more cost effective than the current system costing $64 which we know from question 1. With mail.com offering $9 per box we need to add the $1 for virus protection as well as the $41 hardware costs and $3.50 to come up with the $54.50 per box per month. Clearly the offer is one to take a look at. On the surface the company stands to save a significant amount of money: ($9.50 X 2300=$21,850 PER MONTH SAVINGS) I would adviseBKFin.com to accept the offer.3.
