  • At what price should I agree to supply to a particular customer?
  • What is the best price I can offer to my vendor?
  • What is the impact of improvement initiatives / design changes on product cost?
  • What is the impact of changes in BOM and currency fluctuations on input costs and final product costs?
  • What is the optimum batch size?
  • Which processes / activities are driving a product’s cost and how it can be optimised?
  • How much am I spending on non-value added activities?

How Does ABIS~PRO Work?

ABIS~PRO goes beyond calculating and reporting costs.

It focuses on the integration of information into the decision-making process by producing the required cost and profitability information in a reliable, relevant, and timely manner. This is the key to steer the company’s operations towards improved performance management.

  • Analyses profitability per customer, product, segment, geography, and so on
  • Enables better decisions on product pricing and mix, make-or-buy, and Investment decisions
  • Helps manage product and customer portfolio optimally to maximize profitability
  • Enables effective control of business processes through Activity Based Management (ABM)
  • Tracks resource consumption and identifies spare resources that are not being put to optimal use
  • Identifies costs related to non-value-added activities

Implementation Process

 Implementation of ABIS~PRO generally involves four major phases:

Specifications and Design Freeze

  • Study the operations at the client’s facilities
  • Spend time understanding with various functional heads to understand the existing systems and the exact requirements
  • Delve into the technical aspects, including integration with other IT systems
  • Note down necessary customizations needed
  • Submit a design freeze report to the clients, clearly stating the proposed configuration and deliverables


  • Post receiving the client’s approval, work on necessary customizations to the software and implementation of the functionalities as required
  • Configure necessary interfaces with ERP and other IT systems

Trial Runs

  • Client is given access to a fully operational and exclusively customised costing system
  • Quality of the output is checked with trial runs, where actual data from the client is processed
  • The results are shared with the management for a detailed discussion


  • After the sign-off by the client, comprehensive training is provided to the end-users

"We approached Pro~Active Solutech to help with ABIS~PRO costing system implementation. Earlier, in our SAP system, cost (with an exception of material) was calculated at an aggregate level. This resulted in cost distortion across products and customers. Furthermore, the efficiency of individual processes could not be assessed objectively. Post the new system implementation, we were able to identify expenses to process using drivers that reflect the causality. This enabled the management to target shopfloor improvements via higher capacity utilisation, optimal manpower mix, reduced down time and optimal product mix. We were also able to optimise power consumption by identifying the correlation between units consumed and melting volume, in fixed and variable components of power. These are among several new data points we were able to unearth in terms of product profitability reporting and customer profitability reporting."

"ABC has helped us in having a clear picture of our past operations. It has enabled us to understand the profitability mix of our products. It has also lent valuable support in understanding customer-wise profitability. This has helped us to shift our focus from segments yielding less returns to segments yielding higher returns. We also expect to use it as a tool for our budgetary requirements"
