Built to your specifications
What about those times when you need a financial calculator that is specific to your company? Maybe you need the calculator to use certain company-specific rates or calculation logic. Well we have created plenty of those throughout the years and have become quite good at it (if we do say so ourselves).
The most important part of the whole process of developing a custom calculator is the accurate exchange of the requirements. We have found that it is best for our clients to create a mock-up of the calculator using an Excel spreadsheet. Once the spreadsheet is working properly, we can take that and translate it into a working calculator, fit to be used on the internet on your web site.
Intermountain Health Care, a large health care provider in Utah with over 30,000 employees, commissioned CalcXML to build "custom" calculators to help employees understand their specific retirement and paycheck benefits. The first, a Flash-based "Total Retirement Calculator", incorporates company-specific pension plan benefits and 401(k) matching schedules to help employees determine how long their current savings will last and what additional contributions should be made in order to meet their retirement goals. The second calculator "Paycheck Planner Plus" illustrates the take-home pay impact of increased 401(k)/403(b)/457 contributions along with warnings if ill-timed contributions cause the employee to miss-out on employer matching contributions.
