Sales & Profit - macs Drives Profitability

Planning and Managing Profitability

The macs module Sales & Profit enables and supports rolling sales planning/forecasting taking into account specific customer and sales structures, and with individually configurable trading terms/pricing conditions. macs enables a collaborative and workflow driven integrated business planning (IBP) process. The process begins with the sales department and involves operations, procurement, marketing with management accounting in the center.

Actual Profitability statements at customer and product / service level and all meaningful aggregations show standard contribution margins (e.g. before fixed infra structure cost) and gross profit,but also profit contributions by e.g. sales region, business unit, profit center, etc.

A report "Analysis of Change in Profit" compares the actual result against a budget / forecast and highlights business segments that are over- /under-performing thus enabling effective management of a cost and profit accountability.

The sales force is profit accountable in terms of deviations of profit due to sales volume, price, pricing conditions and mix. Operations is cost accountable in terms of manufacturing cost variances shown in the report (target/forecast cost vs actual cost).

Overhead Cost Management

Cost Center Accounting for Effective Overhead Cost Management

macs cost center accounting functionality is a modern and evolved version of activity based costing (ABC). macs complies with a best practice methodology as published by IMA  (USA) and is also know in the USA as Resource Consumption Accounting (RCA) tool which best supports responsibility accounting. 

In order to support profit contribution margin management, a key aspect is in the differentiation between variable cost and fixed infra structure cost.

A flexed budget report showing actual vs target (flexed budget) cost at account and department / cost center level enables effective overhead cost management. Cost savings are gained following the identification of issues in productivity.

Product and Service Costing

Precision and Transparency in the Value Flow of Production

The product costing module determines the capacity and material requirements based on sales / production volumes and calculates manufacturing costs of products and services. macs takes on bill of materials and routing from the ERP system in place and in a back-flushing process applies them to various sales scenarios in order to determine MRP and CRP thereof.

Standard manufacturing cost and variances from standard cost, which are determined by actual vs target cost comparisons of materials and overheads, are settled to the product income statement.
