Before ImpactECS:

Newly merged company with 170 locations across the US created a need for integrated cost and profitability solution

• Legacy cost and profitability systems existed at each of the now-merged companies
• Limited insight into costs incurred beyond net sales to determine true contribution margins
• Disparate data systems with inaccurate, incomparable and incomplete data
• Challenges with internal projects to develop profitability and enterprise reporting solution

How Veritiv uses ImpactECS:

ImpactECS provides next-generation Cost-to-Serve Analytics:

• A hybrid standard cost and allocation model that calculates the full end-to-end cost and net profitability at the invoice line level
