30 January 2007
Atlanta, Georgia

Molson Coors Brewing Company, the fifth largest brewer by volume in the world, has become the latest addition to the growing roster of 3C Software clients. The Coors Brewing Company Division has recently signed a software license and professional services agreement to implement the Impact:ECS Enterprise Cost System for its Golden, CO and Shenandoah, VA production facilities.

The finance, accounting and IT teams from Coors will work directly with 3C Software cost and manufacturing experts to develop a comprehensive cost management process using Impact:ECS’ flexible set of modeling and forecasting tools. By mirroring Coors’ production process, the company will have the ability to generate detailed cost by product, improve production mix decisions, and discover opportunities to reduce or eliminate costs. Reducing their dependence on spreadsheets will make manufacturing costs transparent and enhance Coors’ leaders understanding of their bottom line.

With the move into the brewing market, 3C Software continues to expand its reach into new areas of process manufacturing. “The addition of such a large, recognized company to our client list demonstrates that there is still a significant need for costing tools that bring transparency to the process,” according to 3C Software CEO Matthew Smith. “We look forward to a successful long-term relationship with Coors focused on delivering detailed and actionable costing data to its leadership.”
