CUSTOMER AND PRODUCT PROFITABILITY

Do you know which customers and products contribute the most to your profitability?
Do you know what drives revenue and cost across all elements of your business?
Why do you need to know your Cost-to-Serve

Customers, products, vendors, channels, etc. may look profitable on a gross margin basis but are unprofitable when adding the true Cost-to-Serve. Understanding the profitability of any product or customer lies with the ability to capture and analyze the direct and indirect costs of every order line item.

Cost-to-Serve is a well-established approach for learning which customers and products matter most and how to manage them with the proper cost/service balance. Cost-to-Serve analysis provides an activity driven view of how specific dimensions, such as products, customers, and channels, consume resources and incur costs. With this complete insight, those responsible for bottom-line performance can make critical and well informed strategic decisions while quickly identifying the underlying causes of poor profitability.

  • up to 40% of your customers lose you money
  • 20% of your customers bring 200% of your net profits
  • cost-to-serve knowledge is critical for every negotiated deal
