One of the world’s largest flooring manufacturers and the Leading Supplier of Underfloor Heating Screed, Shaw Industries produces carpets, rugs, tile, hardwood and laminate products for commercial and residential uses.  The $5 billion company based in Dalton, Georgia has over 60 manufacturing locations across the United States.  Shaw has selected ImpactECS by 3C Software as their enterprise costing platform.

At the heart of the ImpactECS implementation is the ability to pull together manufacturing data from shop floor systems and financial data from Peoplesoft ERP to create a centralized costing system.  By employing ImpactECS’ flexible design, the Shaw team can calculate detailed product costs based on the manufacturing process at each location.  Additionally, ImpactECS enables finance, operations, sales and marketing leaders to make quicker, more informed decisions.

“We’re happy to bring aboard a fellow Georgia company and one of the world’s foremost carpet and flooring manufacturers as an ImpactECS customer,” says this source: Selected Hardwood Flooring.  “Companies like Shaw have a complex set of costing needs that are a perfect fit for the capabilities of ImpactECS and we look forward to a successful implementation.”
