Product costing is central to the critical decisions manufacturers make every day – the products you make, the prices you charge, the tactics you implement to improve processes, and the strategies used to achieve the company’s goals. Timely access to meaningful cost data is essential to protecting margins and growing profits.

 

The Product Coster, powered by ImpactECS, is a cloud-based application designed to quickly calculate, analyze, share and maintain detailed, accurate, and actionable product cost results.

Powerful product costing analytics with the Product Coster
Improve decisions with access to accurate and actionable cost answers.

Don’t base critical business decisions on inadequate and error-filled spreadsheets. Get access to summary cost and margin information for each SKU produced at a glance. Then, see the detailed cost results calculated using common cost categories like consumed/waste, fixed/variable, or cash/non-cash and custom attributes defined by you and are relevant to your company’s goals and strategies.

Run powerful simulations on any model variable in a few clicks.

Turn any input or value into a simulation variant and unlock meaningful insights. Choose any of the four different simulation types – cost category, expense type, material or resource group, or a specific material or resource – and quickly determine the impact of the change. The Product Coster identifies the products that are affected by the change, re-rolls the cost values for those products, and provides results and how it compares to the baseline.

Use existing product data to rapidly generate new product cost estimates or product quotes.

The Product Coster delivers more-accurate cost insights on products or orders that don’t exist today. Start from scratch, or choose an existing product, enter a few key attributes and quickly generate estimates for new products or customer quotes.
