We have tools to help businesses take control of costs and unlock optimisation possibilities

PROFITABILITY, COSTING & CHARGEBACKS

For many enterprises, understanding the true profitability and cost of products and services is not easy. With Magic Orange you can accurately model the complex provider-consumer relationships and allocate shared services costs using measurable and controllable drivers.

PLANNING & SCENARIO ANALYSIS

Traditional cost and profitability systems are not able to quickly provide easy what-if scenario analysis. With Magic Orange, businesses can manipulate one or many cost or revenue inputs or drivers and immediately understand the change to the cost and profit of the products and services delivered. 

TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

One of the key frameworks supported by Magic Orange is the Technology Business Management or TBM framework. By implementing Magic Orange using TBM framework principles you can be assured of a clear methodology for evaluating and managing IT and having the toolset to move the CIO from an expense centre to business driver.

COST TO SERVE

Cost to Serve is the practice of understanding supply chain profitability. This is achieved by determining the true costs associated with servicing your customers, products, and vendors. With Magic Orange, you can produce accurate and repeatable Cost to Serve information, so that businesses can re-position customers, products and services, and re-calibrate how they are served to improve overall margin.

CARRYING COST

Knowing the total Carrying Cost or cost to land a product on your customer’s doorstep is critical to determining the profitability of both the product and the customer. With Magic Orange you can track and analyse every cost a product acquires as it moves through the distribution channel.

ACTIVITY-BASED COSTING

ABC helps you recognise the relationship between costs, activities and products, and through this relationship, assigns indirect costs to products far less arbitrarily than traditional methods. Magic Orange can be modelled to assign direct and overhead costs to products or customers for an unlimited number of activities and using the most appropriate drivers.

For many enterprise Marketing executives face increased budget pressure, the ability to measure profitability of marketing activities is key.
