Ingram’s Lightning Source Tailors Their Costing with ImpactECS

Ingram’s Lightning Source, a leading provider of on-demand printing solutions, has selected ImpactECS by 3C Software as their enterprise cost and profitability modeling solution. Headquartered in La Vergne, Tennessee, Lightning Source has printed over 50 million books and handles print-on-demand services for thousands of publishing partners.

Once implemented, ImpactECS will give the executive and finance team at Lightning Source’s visibility into detailed standard and projected cost data.  This foundation of costing data built using ImpactECS will provide the commercial printer with access to an integrated, forward-looking scenario analysis and modeling environment that leverages manufacturing data of their library of 100,000+ titles and multiple production sites.

“We are excited to welcome Ingram to the ImpactECS family! Ingram has a very unique business model that enables one of a kind solutions for each and every customer,” stated Scott Adams, Director of Sales at 3C Software. “That approach works well with ImpactECS’ flexible modeling platform to deliver a common, connected view of costs across all products and custom services.”
