World’s Largest Denim Producer Chooses Impact:ECS

7 August 2002
Atlanta, Georgia

3C Software, provider of the enterprise cost system Impact:ECS, announced a software license, maintenance, and professional services agreement with Cone Mills Corporation. The textile producer will implement the costing system at its White Oak and Rutherford County denim facilities to model standard product costs, develop budgets and analyze “what-if” scenarios.

Cone Mills, headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, is the largest producer of denim with a range of clients from Polo and Banana Republic to Levi Strauss & Company. With a growing need to identify a single cost management solution, the manufacturer decided to choose Impact:ECS’ flexible architecture and robust analytical tools for the job. The comprehensive licensing and consulting engagement will provide Cone Mills with ways to model each production process within the mill to calculate inventory values for works-in-process and finished goods. Impact:ECS will also allow Cone Mills to analyze scenarios to manage future raw materials costs and production schedules. 3C Software’s professional services team, with expertise in textile production and cost accounting, works directly with the clients’ cost accounting and production teams to provide the appropriate cost management tools.
