Domtar Expands Focus on Integrated Cost Management

5 January 2004
Atlanta, Georgia

Domtar Inc., a global leader in pulp and paper manufacturing, expands its Enterprise Licensing Agreement with 3C Software to provide the Impact:ECS™ Enterprise Cost System for all of its Canadian and U. S. operations. This engagement continues Domtar’s push to establish Impact:ECS as a common costing platform for its manufacturing facilities worldwide.

Currently, 3C Software is in the process of integrating the Impact:ECS suite at four paper mills acquired by Domtar in 2001. The project involves connecting the costing system with existing mill and enterprise systems to give cost data users access to detailed cost information and analysis tools from their desktop PC. The linked data will create a seamless source of information that is easily manipulated to create budgets, forecasts and analysis scenarios in addition to calculating standard and actual costs.

This new agreement includes bringing the company’s Canadian operations online with the enterprise costing solution, creating one platform to manage and evaluate cost information. The new installation will provide access to Impact:ECS from all Domtar locations and secured server access will provide users with cost information relevant to them while protecting sensitive cost information. 3C Software’s professional services team will work directly with Domtar mill managers and accountants to roll-out Impact:ECS and train users on the Windows-based, client/server application.
