  • Management of the contribution margin
  • Cash management
  • Impact of exchange rates and commodity prices

We develop an analysis of value, that cuts across the organization, to support strategic and operational decision-making.

Our approach integrates the business and Information System components in order to:

  • Highlight the levels of profitability based on product/customer segmentation
  • Structure or develop the pricing policy
