Food & Beverage Processing

Whether you’re a protein processor handling disassembly costing, a packaged foods company managing diverse customer channels, or a beverage producer with fluctuating ingredient prices, your understanding of costs is critical to remaining competitive – and profitable. With ImpactECS, you can connect existing data and systems to calculate detailed product costs and variances, determine profits by product or customer, run simulations for planning, value inventories, or other important analytics activities.

Connect existing data from ERP and finance systems, manufacturing systems, data warehouses, or wherever data lives in your organization with business rules and assumptions to calculate the answers needed to both understand past performance and predict future outcomes with ImpactECS.

With ImpactECS, food and beverage companies can:

  • Calculate unique and detailed plant, department, line or route specific costs and meaningful blended costs for every base, work-in-process and finished SKU
  • Develop costing models that account for live operations (grower and feed mill), disassembly/harvest (finish to green pounds) and finished goods
  • Maintain multiple inventory valuations (i.e. market price, sales price, actual cost) at once
  • Analyze variances between actual cost and multiple standards
  • Capture revenue to determine product profitability by customer or product
  • Build fully-loaded budgets starting with the lowest level of cost detail
  • Manage multiple bill-of-materials and recipes simultaneously to account for regular substitutions, sub-components and different packaging options
  • Analyze scenarios including changing commodity or raw material prices, overhead changes, labor rates, crewing and any other variant
