Q2ID is an Adobe InDesign plugin from Markzware to convert Quark to InDesign. A detailed ROI (Return On Investment) report on Q2ID was published, showing that a single license of the Q2ID Adobe plugin can have a first year ROI of over 1,000%, as seen in this chart:
Note: This report used only five files, and even with only so few, the Q2ID ROI is over 1,000 percent. It is likely that many publishers and advertising agencies will have many more files than that, making the return on investment incredibly amazing. They put a lot of attention to costs, time and QuarkXPress InDesign complexities for all layout or DTP programs are not created equal. This is a great resource for publishers or agencies that often need to first prove ROI to purchasing managers or executives before getting approval for buying software licenses.
