A unique approach
When you understand the interplay of cost structure, capacity, and pricing in your manufacturing or distribution company, your financial information becomes much more powerful and opens your eyes to opportunities for improving profitability. But to really get the most from your data, it needs to be as simple and straightforward as possible, directly linking profitability to the typical industry business model.
CLA’s manufacturing and distribution professionals can help you understand the pitfalls of traditional costing and pricing methods. We’ll work with you to develop an easy-to-use model that employs value-added revenue and capacity utilization to give you an enlightened perspective on your operations. You’ll find a heightened level of insight that can lead to improved profitability, new market growth, and higher business value.
