What is Customer & Product Profitability (CPP)
As we provide insights and leadership in managing our businesses to profitability, visibility to our Customer and Product Profitability becomes a fundamental need. While the sales Volumes, Revenue and Margin may be visible at this level, in many businesses this only tells part of the story of profit contribution.
To see the full picture, often we need to combine the visibility of our Revenue and Margin with an accurate designation of operating costs along Customer and Product Lines.
It begins with a detailed view of Units, Revenue & Margin at the appropriate level of depth as determined by the business. We then layer in the attribution of operating expenses down to the product and customer level using a variety of Cost Designation Methods. The result is the full picture of profit at the customer and product level to enable an array of Analytics.
