Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general)
French term or phrase: impact chiffré
This appears in a presentation about a project that is being rolled-out in a company's international offices to encourage innovation:

Les correspondants qui animent localement la démarche réceptionnent et valident les suggestions (forme et ***impact chiffré****).

From looking at the glossaries, the only possibility I've come up with is "costed impact", but that doesn't seem quite right, especially as I think that "chiffré" could refer to other things besides the financial cost, such as manhours, etc.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Effects in clear terms

Effects are to be expressed in clear terms by adding relevant figures. For example, instead of saying that a majority of those questioned agreed with some opinion, we can say, of the 585 people who were asked this question, 512 agreed with the opinion.

In other words, quoting concrete figures to bring home the point.
