Cost (or analytical) Accounting, a crucial industrial management and control tool, is equally important and useful in trade.
Fully implemented, it can track, analyse and compare against estimates, both the financial and quantitative evolution of the cost/profit centers.
CMStrade's CA involves multiple and embedded cost centers, financial and quantitative data (unlike industry, trade data unhelpfully start by being approximate!), complex indirect costs, etc.
It is impossible to answer these issues by only adding some CA data fields in the physical or accounting. Therefore, CMStrade's CA is a complete application.
By thus specialising, the CA conforms to its auxiliary accounting role, and can:
■ deal with tonnage/volume too,
■ have multiple time-frames,
■ classify costs/revenues in far greater detail and flexibility than would be feasible in GA.
The CA equally integrates fully with the other applications, which automatically supply the bulk of its data and transactions. In effect, there is little manual input in the application!
CMStrade CA is a necessary management tool: it precisely analyses what has happened and helps to prevent what should not happen.
