French term or phrase: en regard des économies sur la facture
I've lost my mind with this one:
La box n’est en fin de compte intéressante que pour environ 40% des clients et connaît par ailleurs une autre limite potentielle en matière de coûts de déploiement en regard des économies sur la facture.

In the long run the box is interesting for around 40% of the clients and in addition has another potential limit with regards to deployment costs XXXXXX.

explanation of meaning
Explanation:
La box n’est en fin de compte intéressante que pour environ 40% des clients et connaît par ailleurs une autre limite potentielle en matière de coûts de déploiement en regard des économies sur la facture

In the end the box is only interesting for some 40% of clients and its installation costs in relation to bottom-line savings on the bill are a further potential handicap (to its development)

very loose translation.....

agree  Tony M: Bravo for 'bottom-line savings'! For 'intéressant', I'd maybe consider 'worthwhile'...

compared to what is (actually) saved on bills


Explanation:
I would perhaps phrase it something like this:

... another potential limit is the (high) deployment costs compared to what is (actually) saved on bills.

Déploiement could be translated in a number of other ways (installation, roll-out...), but I suspect that you know which best suits your text.

The context also leads me to think that maybe 'la facture' corresponds to a series of bills or invoices, which would mean that a plural is needed in English.
