3C Software/Honeywell Agreement Delivers Costing Technology to South American Paper Leader

20 April 2005
Atlanta, Georgia

3C Software, through its relationship with Honeywell, expands its reach in the paper industry by implementing the OptiVISION Cost Model powered by Impact:ECS at Empresas CMPC S.A. headquartered in Santiago, Chile. The agreement, which covers four (4) Chilean mill locations, will provide the paper company with Honeywell’s business logic solution that incorporates the power and flexibility of Impact:ECS.

While the entire project will focus on the overall order-to-cash process for Empresas CMPC, the cost model will analyze data to get a true picture of the production costs associated with pulp and paper manufacturing. Business leaders will be able to get detailed cost information for any stage of production and integrate cost data into other systems to increase the integrity of all financial reporting for the company. The first mill located in Maule, Chile, is expected to go live with the OptiVISION system including the Impact:ECS Cost Model by October 2005 with the remaining mills to follow.
