This month’s Industry Week survey of the 500 Largest US Manufacturers ranks performance based on the companies’ annual revenues. Of those who made the third annual list, six are currently using the Impact:ECS Enterprise Cost system for some or all of their cost accounting processes. 3C Software ‘s clients on this years survey include PPG Industries (#92), Smithfield Foods (#95), AMD (#167), Bowater (#217), Analog Devices (#247), and Cooper Tire & Rubber (#306).

While revenue performance is an important metric to determine a company’s success, costs have an equally significant impact on overall profitability. Manufacturers need to keep a close eye on production costs, raw material prices, inventory values, yields and variances – but many traditional ERP systems lack the flexibility to provided detailed results in these areas. Impact:ECS is specifically designed to meet the needs of process manufacturers. Cost managers of the clients represented in this survey are able to calculate detailed cost data based on their specific business rules.

“We are pleased to provide cost management solutions to such a prominent group of manufacturers,” said Matthew Smith, CEO of 3C Software. “Our focus as a company is to continue to provide best-of-breed cost management solutions that will help accountants, managers and senior leaders make better business decisions.”
