What’s the Future of Acorn Systems?

crackedacornDo you want a company that specializes in content delivery and video communications to run your cost and profitability system?

If you’re an Acorn Systems customer, that’s what is happening to you!

Acorn Systems was recently acquired by Ignite Technologies – and the future of the cost and profitability solution is unclear. Your decision to invest in Acorn’s solution shows that you understand the strategic advantage of a detailed cost and profitability system, so maybe it’s time to look into a more robust solution.

The ImpactECS Cost and Profitability Management Platform is the only independent software product focused solely on cost and profitability management. Its flexible and dynamic platform gives you the tools to develop detailed and unique cost and profit models that meet your specific business requirements.

So, what’s the difference between Acorn Systems’ Performance Analyzer and ImpactECS?

They’re both business modeling tools that have a built in calculation engine – but that’s where the similarities end. ImpactECS is a robust cost and profitability platform designed to handle complex and challenging modeling requirements. The chart below describes many of the advanced capabilities of ImpactECS.
