This matter involves a dispute between a leading television and internet seller of jewelry and a software company.
Accumyn was asked to review and opine on the damages suffered by the jewelry seller as a result of the failed software implementation. Accumyn determined the jewelry seller’s out-of-pocket costs and extra-expenses incurred as a result of failed software implementation. This included payments to the software company, as well to the other third-party vendors. This involved a determination of the value of the benefit received, if any, for each of these payments. Accumyn also determined the internal labor costs incurred by the jewelry seller in order to ameliorate the damage from the failed software implementation.
The assignment also involved the preparation of five lost profit models to determine the damages suffered by the jewelry seller as a result of various delays in obtaining functionalities that had been promised by the software company. Five additional lost profit models were prepared to determine the damages suffered by the jewelry seller as a result of internal projects that were also delayed as a result of the failed software implementation. These analyses involved determination of the expected incremental profits the jewelry seller would have experienced, if not for these delay periods.
