Cost management and profitability analysis

Which of your customers, products, or services contribute the most to your profit? Which of your business units or business processes are the most cost-intensive? Many companies and departments struggle with answering these kinds of questions, as spreadsheets and ERP-systems are not sufficient to provide this information. Even though, such information is crucial to know to be able to optimize profitability.

Our software supports pricing, profitability analysis and operational efficiency. The principles of Time Driven Activity Based Costing are fundamental to this. SaaS-solution CostReport™ makes this possible in a sustainable way.

To fill this gap, BirdsEye CostReport™ developed the new cost management tool CostReport™. CostReport™ provides an easy and reliable way to better understand costs and profitability.

No more cutting and pasting in Excel, or fiddling with systems that are just not suitable for this. But instead, quick and clear answers to the questions that are most important to you.

The tool is flexible and available to a variety of sectors. Using standard approaches per sector makes it possible to compare your outcome to the appropriate ‘peer group’, such that improvement opportunities are identified more quickly.

If desired, BirdsEye helps translating these outcomes into concrete plans to improve.

Funded start-up

At the end of 2019, Koen Perik (expert in the field of cost management and former Unilever manager), Daan Nollen (former Partner at Boston Consulting Group (BCG)), and Marcel Kannekens (Former CFO), decided to summate their combined 75 years of experience in strategy and management accounting into one product. A product that is simple, offers steering information, and meets a need that is not met by ERP-systems.
