SAP Business Objects Cost and Profitability Management
The management of a company's costs and profitability can be an important competitive advantage – especially in markets where sales volume growth is low and differentiation is expensive or difficult. Unfortunately, most companies don’t have full and accurate insight into their costs and profitability, and fail to account for the cost-to-serve element of individual transactions.
With profitability and cost management solutions from SAP BusinessObjects, you easily determine the cost-to-serve on a transaction-by-transaction basis, so you can gain the insight required to control costs and optimise profitability. These solutions can help you to analyse and understand the complex relationships between customers, products and distribution channels, as well as the cost of shared services such as IT and marketing.
The result? A powerful, cost-focused, transactional database that illustrates true profitability. You’ll get the information you need for more effective pricing, tendering, key account negotiations, customer management, process improvements and product management.
