HMS Gains Detailed View of Product Costs with ImpactECS

Atlanta, Georgia

Starting with a desire to improve the Christmas Tree Stand, HMS Manufacturing Company has evolved into a leading developer of plastic consumer products for the home. The privately held company designs products for leading retailers and brands including Kmart, Martha Stewart, Home Logic, and Hefty. Located in Troy, Michigan, HMS has selected ImpactECS by 3C Software as their enterprise costing platform.

HMS has a critical need for the company to understand the detailed costs associated with producing their products. The goal of the project is to give HMS the ability to accurately quote customer orders, track detailed program costs by large customer, and analyze a variety of scenarios. 3C Software consultants will work directly with the HMS project team to develop cost models and integrate ImpactECS with their existing Microsoft Dynamics ERP system.

“HMS is different from our typical customer,” shared Scott Adams, 3C Software’s Director of Sales. “Although they have outsourced production to a third party, this opportunity demonstrates that there is a need for manufacturing-free environments to understand the impact of product costs on their overall performance.”
